Young boys and pockets I don't think they can be separated. Pockets hold the treasures of lifetimes, a yoyo, a shooter and four aggies, a few baseball cards, and a Canadian penny. When a boy walks home from school anything of interest goes in a pocket, stones, pine cones, nails, a rusty bolt. What neat stuff!
Unlike other boys pockets, the pockets of the Cub Scout's uniform can not only hold a lot of things, they are used to display a boy's accomplishments. Cub Scout achievements can be divided into four categories: God, country, family and self.
A boy can earn separate awards for all these areas:
For God, he can earn the emblem of his faith;
For country, the World Conservation Award;
For family, the Cub Scout Family Award;
For self, the camp, special events, and sports program patches.
The most important part of this colorful shirt is the rank;
Bobcat, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, and Arrow of Light.
Tonight we have someone/boys who has/have earned...........
Present awards to parents to give to boys. Give boys and parents a round of applause for a job well done.
(Prepare pockets of blue paper with different emblems on them ahead of time and hold up as each is referenced in speech).
