It’s pack meeting night, and that means awards. Jeremy received his CyberChip award and the Marbles and Photography belt loops tonight.
Ethan finally received his Arrow of Light tonight. We had it finished early enough for them to give it to him at the last pack meeting, but they weren’t prepared to give it to him. Ethan also received all of the other awards that we have been finishing up, including the Forester, and Aquanaut activity badges, the last compass point, the Collecting and Swimming belt loops, the Marbles, Swimming, Geology, Nutrition, Photography, Weather, Computers, Citizenship, Science, and Collecting pins, the CyberChip, and the Cub Scout World Conservation award. He also received a special award, the Webelos Super Achiever, for earning all twenty of the Webelos activity badges. When Ethan was done stuffing all of that into his pockets, they went on with the Arrow of Light Ceremony.
Then, since Ethan has turned eleven and will no longer be a part of cub scouts, they had a cross-over ceremony for him. Brother Howe walked him through each rank in cub scouting and he ended by crossing over the bridge to meet his new scout leader. I had given his scout leader his book and neckerchief and slide to present to Ethan when he crossed over the bridge, and that was that. Ethan is now no longer a cub scout, but a boy scout.
Here are all of Ethan’s awards that he received tonight:
