Celebrating the Birthday All Month Long

I attended the first of three Blue and Gold Banquets of the month today, celebrating the birthday of Scouting, and celebrating all of the awards of the hard-working Cub Scouts. 

The theme from this particular Pack this year was "Out of This World". Lots of fun space-themed centerpieces:

A rocketship

 I'm not sure what this is, but it's creative!

The solar system

A whole box of fireworks, personalized with each boy's name!

One of the highlights of a Blue and Gold is the Arrow of Light ceremony of the 5th graders--2nd year Webelos Scouts. This is the final rank in Cub Scouting--the Final Frontier, if you will. In addition to the actual badge, each boy receives a plaque in the shape of an arrow, to commemorate all of their hard work.

And of course, no celebration is complete with a cake to mark the occasion!

Congratulations, boys! Job well done!
