Cub Scouts Blue and Gold Ceremony



Recently, the Webelos II Cub Scouts held their Blue and Gold Ceremony. This ceremony is held so the Cub Scouts can transition to Boy Scouts. The first part of the program the boys, along with a parent, took part in the "Arrow of Light Award" recognition. This is the highest rank a Cub Scout can earn, and earning this rank prepares a Webelos Scout to become a Boy Scout. The Arrow of Light displays a universal symbol for the sun and, below it an arrow. The seven rays of the sun stand for each day of the week. They remind you to do your best every day as you follow the arrow that leads to Boy Scouting.

The second part of the program, the boys were joined by Bill Liedman, Boy Scout Master, and several boys from his Boy Scout troop to help complete the transition. They held the lighting ceremony and crossed over the bridge where they were met by members of the Boy Scouts where they received their Green Shoulder Loops and Red Neckerchief.

We want to thank everyone who attended the pot luck supper and for the younger Cub Scouts and older Boy Scouts who took part in the ceremony.
