28th - Investiture Ceremony on Oct 23 11:45-12:15

Dear all parents,

You are invited to an investiture ceremony this Sunday that will take place during our regular meeting.  It'll be from 11:45am - 12:15pm.

An investiture ceremony is the time when a Scout publicly announces their commitment to the Scout Law. New Scouts need to know, and understand three things: 

1) Scout Promise and Law
2) Scout Motto and Slogan
3) Scout Handshake, Salute, and Sign and the reasons Scouts use them. 

New Scouts also must take part in at least one Scout activity. 

When new members learn and accomplish these four things, they are ready to be invested as Scouts. The investiture ceremony is very important. The investiture ceremony signifies the acceptance of each new Scout by his or her peers. It establishes a relationship where adult Scouter look for the best in and from the Scouts. The youths too will try to give their best; they may not always succeed, but they will always keep trying.

Parents are welcomed to join us!

IMPORTANT NOTE: In addition to the above requirement, only youth with FULL Uniform can be invested.  Full Uniform include:

Beavers - Vest & Hat
Cubs - Grey shirt, black pants, black socks and black shoes
Scouts - Green shirt, black pants, black socks and black shoes
Venturers - Dark blue shirt, black pants, brown belt, black socks and black shoes
