All People Great And Small

As we retire our flags this evening, let us
remember all the people who have helped us shape this
great land. The scientists and engineers, the farmers
and factory workers, the writers and artists, the men and
women of our country who gave of their talents and
hard work to make this land what it is today. The fabric
of our society is interwoven with all their contributions,
both great and small.

Life Never Stands Still

Life never stands still. If you don't advance, you go backward. In Cub Scouting, you have
many opportunities to learn and to advance as you do achievements, electives, and activity
badges. Do them well so that you are proud of the badges you wear.
Work while you work, play while you play; one thing at a time, that is the way. All that you do
do with all your might. Things done halfway are not done right.


A smile costs nothing but creates much. It happens in a flash, but the memory sometimes lasts
forever. It cannot be begged, bought, borrowed, or stolen, but it is something that has no earthly
value to anyone unless it is given away. So, if you meet someone who is too weary to give you a
smile, leave one of yours. No one needs a smile quite as much as a person who has none to give.
