FOCUS

Cub Scout Roundtable Leaders’ Guide

What does it mean to be part of a Family?  Cub Scouts live with their own families, each unique and special.  They can learn and share what they find out about their ancestors and the countries, cultures, languages and stories that are a part of their personal histories.  They can cook foods and play games from those cultures.  Cub Scouts can, also, work on the belt loops for Heritages, or Language and Culture.

CORE VALUES

Cub Scout Roundtable Leaders’ Guide

Some of the purposes of Cub Scouting developed through this month’s theme are:

  • Spiritual Growth, Boys will learn devotion to their families.
  • Family Understanding, Boys will learn about their own families and what makes them unique.
  • Respectful Relationships, By exploring other cultures, boys can develop empathy for and understanding of one another.

The core value highlighted this month is:

  • Cooperation, Boys will learn how working together achieves goals.

Can you think of others??? Hint – look in your Cub Scout Program Helps.  It lists different ones!! All the items on both lists are applicable!!  You could probably list all twelve if you thought about it!!

COMMISSIONER’S CORNER

It’s that time of year again when I begin to run out of material as last year’s Pow Wow Books finish.  So when your Council has its Pow Wow, send me a CD of your Book and I will send you our CD.  Just write me atcommissionerdave@comcast.net

Don’t forget it’s Thanksgiving - What a great time to have your Cubs ask older family members about their family tree. They could have an opportunity to hear some grand old stories of days past at the Thanksgiving table.

There is some theme related material and some  Thanksgiving  material in this issue of Baloo.  When you look at the chart of when this theme has been used before, you see the answer is once.  Therefore, there is not a lot of material out there to gather.

Ever wonder what a professional Scouter does??

Leslie in Michigan sent me a link to a good article that describes the professional in Scouting at

Maybe now that I am retired for the first time I should consider this J J

This issue is late (again, I know) but it should really be my last late issue.  I am now retired (probably only for the first time) After 33 years and 10 months making electricity, they made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.  October and November will be devoted to my ever growing “Honey Do” list and recovering my house.  What does one really do with seven years of Roundtable prop (plus other assorted Scout stuff from days as Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Wood Badge staff and other training staffs, four Philmont treks and 7 or 8 trips to PTC?
