Blue & Gold
Celebrating the anniversary of Scouting
Our special day is fast approaching
Blue & Gold is a celebration of the Scouting anniversary and highlights the achievements of our Webelos II den as they receive the highest honor in Cub Scouts, the Arrow of Light. Completing their journey in Cub Scouts we will be honoring their commitment to scouting as they cross over to continue their journey in Boy Scouts.
As part of our celebration, we have dinner and entertainment to make the evening more enjoyable for all.
Our special entertainment event for this evening is "Jeffini the Magician".
As with previous years, we do cover the cost of the Scouts in the pack but do ask that other family members tickets are paid for by you. Please let us know how many will be attending our Blue & Gold Celebration..

This is a Draft agenda with time built in to the program just in case we run long. We will do everything possible to end earlier but wanted to give you a "worse case" look at the program for the night.
A few years ago, there was a wildlife organization out west that offered a bounty of $5000 for captured wolves.
Two friends, Sam and Jed, decided to make their fortune. Day and night, they scoured the mountains and forests looking for their valuable prey.
Exhausted one night, after searching for many days with no luck, they fell asleep dreaming of their potential fortune.
Suddenly, Sam woke up a bit startled, and saw that they were surrounded by a huge pack of nearly 70 wolves with searing black eyes, and bared teeth. Low growls rumbling from their throats.
He slowly reached over and nudged his friend and said "Jed, wake up."
"I think we're rich!"
Gentlemen, Sam had a positive attitude. I hope you do, too.
