    Special Ceremony 4

    (The audience faces a draped table that holds a candlebram with 12 candles for the Scout Law and 3 larger candles for the parts of the Scout Oath. The Us. and unit flags are in place. Leaders and special guests are seated behind the table. One small extra candle is lighted; other lights are dimmed.)

    Scoutmaster: Honored guests, ladies and gentlemen: We all are members of the world's largest brotherhood of boys and men. We believe earnestly in the Scout motto, 12 Prepared," and in the ideals of service as given in the Scout slogan, "Do a Good Turn Daily." We meet here regularly to practice the skills of Scouting and to have fun. From time to time we go hiking and camping so we may learn more of the great outdoors and at the same time develop qualities of health and self-reliance. In Scouting, as in the game of football or any other sport or activity, we must have rules. The rules of Scouting are found in the 12 point of the Scout Law. As I light the 12 candles in front of me, representing the 12 points of the Scout Law, I would like to have the troop repeat them after me. Troop, attention! Scout sign!

    (lights first candle): A Scout is trustworthy.

    Troop (repeats after him): A Scout is trustworthy. (Same procedure is followed for the other 11.)

    Another important part of the Scout's obligation is explained in the Scout Oath. Here he promises to do his best to live up to the Scout Law; he recognizes also that he has an obligation to God, to his country, to others, and to himself. A Scout takes this oath when he joins the troop and we repeat it from time to time, so it will always be fresh in mind. As I light the three remaining candles, the troop will repeat the Scout Oath with me. Scout sign! (He then leads the troop in the Scout Oath, lighting a candle before each of the three parts. When finished, he asks the troop to be seated. The house lights are turned on; the ceremony is completed.)
