Bobcat investiture board with candles.
Cubmaster, Bobcat candidates, parents.
The top three candles on our ceremony board represent the Cub Scout
promise. This is a promise which binds all Cub Scouts together in a
common goal. It is through this promise that we are guided and directed.
light the white candle which stands for "I promise to do my
best." This is not always easy to do. Cub Scouts should do the best
light the red candle which stands for the second part of the promise
"To help other people". Helping others not only makes them
happy, but it makes the Cub Scouts happy, too. You help other people by
doing a good turn each day.
light the blue candle which stands for loyalty and obedience. The third
part of our Promise "Obey the Law of the Pack", means that you
will follow Akela, who is any respected leader. you will be loyal to our
pack and make the best pack on the country. You give good will, which
means that your attitude of helpfulness and friendship can benefit other
people as well as yourself.
