A Picture Of Our Past
SETTING: Flag is staffed on a stage behind a closed curtain. If this arrangement is not possible, the opening may be done in a darkened room with the spotlight on the flag coming on at the appropriate time.
CUBMASTER: It is a picture of our past, and there is something of Davy Crockett Kit Carson, Daniel Boone, Horace Greely, the famous forty-niners, and even Lewis and Clark. It is a picture of all those brave frontiersman that headed west.
It is a picture of our people ... 200 million of them. They are part of the picture we are helping to paint.
To this picture we would add the portraits of boys, growing into men, who will live useful lives, and who will add to that history of noble action which is our American heritage.
Cub Scouts and parents , the picture of our country! (Curtains open showing the American flag; or a spotlight on the American flag.)
The flag of the United States of America! Will you all stand and join me in saying the Pledge of Allegiance to this great flag and to the people who make it so great?
