Blue & Gold Ceremony Will Mark Tiger Den 2's Tiger Cub Badge Achievement

The ceremony will have a pirate theme and will be held on Sunday, March 10 at 1 p.m. at the Jacques Reception Center in Hazlet.

Editor's Note: This story was written with the help of Tiger Den 2 as part of their efforts to earn their Tiger Cub Badge.

The scouts of Tiger Den 2, Matawan-Aberdeen Cub Scout Pack 66 have been working hard to earn their Tiger Cub Badge.

The process is long, but the scouts are up to the challenge. Each scout has to learn the Cub Scout promise, sign and salute as well as complete a total of fifteen activities.

The activities range from learning how to hike in Holmdel Park without leaving a trace to making a leaf rub and sharing stories around the dinner table to learning about journalism. The activities help the scouts experience the world they live in while also learning what it means to be a citizen, to be responsible and to have faith.

Den 2 is nearly done with their fifteen activities and are excited to mark their accomplishment with the Blue and Gold Awards Banquet and Crossover in March. 

During the Blue and Gold Ceremony, an adult important to each scout will give them their Tiger Cub Badge, officially beginning the process of the Tiger Cub Scouts becoming a Wolf Cub Scouts. 

"It's going to be a lot of fun and very joyful," said one proud scout.

The ceremony will have a pirate theme and will be held on Sunday, March 10 at 1 p.m. at the Jacques Reception Center in Hazlet.

It is so nice to see children still joining and enjoying the institution of scouting. In this day, of ever decreasing moral values, it is so refreshing to see The Boy Scouts of America is still attracting children and their adult family members. I commend the children of Den 2 for enthusiastically pursuing their goal of tiger rank! These children are well on their way to improving their character development, spiritual growth, good citizenship and family understanding, to name only a few. Our country needs strong morally centered citizens to take the reins of leadership. I believe the very survival of America’s founding principals depends on a generation of young people obtaining the very positive exposure The Boy Scouts offers. So, maybe we can look forward to seeing some of the members of Den 2 in the leadership positions of tomorrow that this country so desperately needs. Good luck Den 2 and congratulations on reaching your goal! Keep striving for your goals, but just remember, never compromise your values or integrity. : )
