Thank You Ceremony

This Thank You ceremony is based on one I found in some old program helps. It goes well with the older Cub Scouts Give Thanks supplemental program theme.

Thank You Ceremony

Let the Cub Scouts prepare eight large placards, each with a large letter painted on it to match the initial letter of each verse. As each verse is recited by a Cub, the proper letter is displayed so that at the end of the eight verses, the words “Thank You” are visible to all.

Cub 1: “T- stands for teacher, and we have a quest, as a Pack – we promise them ‘We’ll do our best.’ “

Cub 2: “H – is for helpful, which we try to be as each helps the other in the highest degree.”

Cub 3: “A – for advantages we all enjoy. We try to be grateful and wisely employ.”

Cub 4: “N – is for nation whose future depends, on all of us in the pack who want to be friends.”

Cub 5: “K – is for knowledge we’re going to need. We’ll work hard to gain it and hope we succeed.”

Cub 6: “Y – is for youth all over the land. God bless and keep us and steady our hand.”

Cub 7: “O – for opportunity around everyone. We’ll help each other rise until we have all won.”

Cub 8: “U – stand for usefulness. We like to serve. We do what we can to help and conserve.”

It is really important for kids to learn how to say “Thank You”. Gratitude is something which needs to be taught, and Cub Scouts is a perfect forum for doing this.

    I liked this a lot but I did change some of the wording to work better with the boys. I felt they would understand the meaning more. Here is it:

    T- stands for teacher, ours bear the test, as a Pack – we promise ‘We’ll do our best.’
    H – is for helpful, which we try to be as each helps the other in the highest degree.
    A – is for advantages we all enjoy, we try to be grateful and wisely employ.
    N – is for nation whose future depends on all of us in the pack who want to be friends.
    K – is for knowledge we’re going to need. We’ll work hard to gain it as we grow to succeed.
    Y – is for youth all over the land. God blesses us and guides our hand.
    O – for opportunity all around, a good deed to be done isn’t hard to be found.
    U – stands for usefulness as we find ways to serve. Parents can help us with this learning curve.

    This sounds great! I plan on using this to close out the boys skits at Blue and Gold followed by a big “THANK YOU PARENTS!”
