Blue and Gold Banquet

The Blue and Gold banquet is one of our most exciting events of the year, because it is a Birthday party for Cub Scouting in which all pack families can take part. The banquet is held in February, the anniversary month of the Boy Scouts of America. The packís big celebration gets its name from the Cub Scout colors, Blue and Gold. Blue stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty and the sky above. The Gold represents sunlight, good cheer and happiness.

Our Blue and Gold is a potluck affair with each family bringing a covered dish. The plan of feeding isnít important. It is the Cub Scouting that happens in making the program come true that counts. Our dens sit together with their families, so that den spirit and family relationships are strengthened. Guests may be invited and are seated either at a head table, or with the dens. The banquet arrangements are planned well in advance. The pack typically provides the dinner program entertainment.

Since the most important point of the program is the recognition of advancement of the scouts, it will finish with an Order of the Arrow Indian themed cross over ceremony with our older Webelos den crossing over into boy scouts. We will also be recognizing Leaders and special parents.
