What about the Webelos II?
Completing the rank of Webelos II and becoming a Boy Scout is the highest Cub Scout award. There is a special ceremony for this achievement called the Arrow of Light. Our Pack chooses to conduct this event separate from the Blue & Gold banquet. At the Arrow of Light Ceremony, the Webelos II Scouts will receive their Arrow of Light patch that is worn on the Boy Scout uniform.
What should my Scout wear to the banquet?
Class A Uniform: uniform shirt, neckerchief/slide, and belt. Hat is optional.
Who purchases the new Neckerchief & Slide?
The Awards Chairperson, along with the Blue & Gold Committee will take care of purchasing the items ahead of time.
Who attends the Blue and Gold Banquet?
Obviously the Scouts, but parents, siblings, grandparents, are all invited to attend. It is up to each individual household. Keep in mind, though, reservations are required for all attendees so we can ensure we have enough seating and food.
What is the cost?
The Pack will cover the cost for the Scout and 1 parent. Additional guests are a modest $5 to cover the cost of the dinner.
What is FOS?
During the Blue & Gold banquet program there will also be donations made to help support Friends of Scouting (FOS). FOS provides support to scouting in our local area. For more information on FOS: http://www.fiverivers.org/finance/index.asp
How do we sign up to attend the banquet?
Contact the Blue & Gold Chairperson (or the Committee Chair). They will have the formal invitations and will be giving further instructions. Remeber: RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED.
Does the Blue & Gold Committee need help?
Yes! Help is never turned down when needed. Please contact a Blue & Gold Committee member or the Pack Committee Chairperson.
Will their be food at the banquet?
Yes. Our Pack has a basic buffet, typically spaghetti, bread, salad & soda or punch. There is usually a cake or cupcakes as well. We try to keep costs low & affordable yet fun! Our Pack recognizes various food allergies & we do our best to accommodate but do need to keep costs low. Please address any food concerns with the Blue & Gold Committee well in advance.
