    February Law and Cub Scout Theme Scout Law-Friendly A scout is a friend to everyone, even people who are very different from him.

    HOW DOES THE THEMEFRIENDS NEAR AND FAR RELATE TO THIS POINT OF THE SCOUT LAW? A Scout is a friend to all. He is a brother to other Scouts. He offers his friendship to people of all races and nations, and respects the beliefs and customs of others. Friends Near and Far reminds us that we are part of something bigger than our own community. By living the Scout Law, we are accepting of the worlds peoples and their values.

    Upcoming Information

    Did You Know? February 8, 2016 will be the 106th birthday/anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. What better way to celebrate than with a birthday party called the blue and gold banquet? In nearly all packs, the blue and gold banquet is the highlight of the year. It brings families together for an evening of fun and cheer. Its often the pack meeting for February, but can be held a different time during the year.

    The banquet can be like a regular pack meeting, with songs, skits, stunts, and awards. Or it can be something differ-ent and a little more special. Your pack may decide to bring in an entertainer such as a magician or a storyteller. Some packs invite former members and other Scouting or community leaders to take part. Or you could have a video or slide show of what the pack did during the last 12 months. Some packs use the blue and gold banquet to put on an impressive ceremony for Webelos Scouts as they cross over into Boy Scouting.

    Some packs make the banquet a potluck dinner affair, having each family bring a covered dish. Other packs prefer purchasing the food, having it prepared by the parents committee, and prorating the cost among those attending the banquet. Some packs have a formal dinner while others just do a cake and ice cream celebration. Every pack is different in numbers of people and budget, so the plans need to be finalized within your pack, with the banquet committee and pack committee working closely together.

    December Roundtable the team presented 4 different themes and we also posted the information and handouts on our websitewww.deseretpeakcubscouting.com , in the handouts section.

    Thanks for all you do! Roger Ekins, CS Roundtable Commissioner Michelle Ekins, Vice Chair/ADC-Cub Scouting
