We are honored to invite you and your family to one of the most prestigious events for our Pack, our Blue and Gold Banquet, taking place on Wednesday, February 4, from 6 p.m. to app. 8 p.m.Blue signifies the sky, truth, spirituality, and loyalty. Gold stands for warm sunlight, good cheer, and happiness. Together they symbolize what Cub Scouting is all about.
The Blue & Gold Banquet is the birthday party for Cub Scouts and a time when we celebrate the achievements of our Pack, specifically the boys in each den completing their required achievements.
For this special occasion, we will have an Honor Guard from Crew 911 there to start us off and a special Guest Speaker to conduct the Arrow of Light ceremony. This highest award in Cub Scouts is earned by Webelos that have been active participants in their den and are ready to join a Boy Scout troop. Many of the requirements for the Arrow of Light are intended to familiarize the scout with a local troop and show him that crossing over into a troop is the next step to take in scouting.
Because we have dinner and a packed program following thereafter, we ask that you and your family plan to arrive at the Blankner, K-8 Cafeteria between 5:45 and 5:55 p.m. as our program will start promptly at 6 p.m.
Please have your Cub Scouts wear their full uniform-shirts, badges, neckerchiefs, sliders, etc.
Our dinner theme is Italian and we are asking that each den be responsible for bringing the following:
Tigers-Salads (garden, pasta, potato, etc.)Wolves-Bread/RollsBears-Side dishesWebelos-Main dishes (lasagna, baked ziti, meatballs, etc.)
We are VERY proud of our Cub Scouts and look forward to seeing you and your family for this special evening.
As you can imagine it takes many volunteers to make this evening special so if you are able to assist with set up (5:15-5:45 p.m.) or clean up, we would welcome your help.
On behalf of the Pack 168 leaders,
Jeanine Carson, Communications Chair
