Blue & Gold - How the West Was FUN!

Thank you to everyone for joining us last night for our annual Blue & Gold Banquet.  It was such a treat to see those smiling Cub Scouts, proud parents, dedicated leaders, and some of my most favorite Scouters who were guests.  We do it all for them -- the boys!  We want their experience in this program to be everything it can so thank you for making that all possible!

We have some fun pictures to share!  Here is a LINK to them all. We would love you to add your photos to our album too!

It takes hard work to set up a Blue & Gold!  But Monica's magnetic personality kept us smiling!

Some of the amazing culinary creations for the Cake Bake Competition:



Banana, Bandanna... banana... bandanna... 

A Tigers hiding out in the jail.

Our den after receiving their Arrow of Light awards.

And (the ones I was able to catch) a photo of them pinning their moms...




Everyone received an awesome patch designed by our Committee Chair's friend, Corey Pankey, just for  this event! THANK YOU COREY!

Another amazing highlight to our evening was that our new Cubmaster, Chris Mahanna, was the first member of his Bear patrol from his Wood Badge course to receive his beads after completing his tickets.  Wood Badge is the highest level of training an adult leader can receive as part of the Boy Scouts of America.  It's a lot of work, a lot of time but it's also a lot of fun... and reaffirms your commitment to the program.  We are so proud of you Chris!

The evening was a complete success and we thank you all for spending it with us celebrating these young men and the anniversary of Scouting.

It's bittersweet to see them all moving on!   Another round of applause for our AOL den as they are moving on to Troop 1910.
