Scouts awarded at Arrow of Light and Crossover ceremony

The Arrow of Light is the highest award in Cub Scouting and it is very symbolic.

The Arrow of Light is the only Cub Scout patch that can be carried over and worn on the Boy Scout uniform. The Pack had a very special surprise for this year’s Arrow of Light ceremony- three members from the Order of the Arrow, Ania Topa Hutsi, Lodge #60 dressed in full Indian Regalia presented the Arrow of Light ceremony, Job Keith, Lodge Chief, Luke Keith, Vice Chief and Danny W. Morrison II, Guide.

This year the Pack was honored to present the Arrow of Light awards to Pack 194 members Connor Below, Seth Macmanus, Carter McMain, Jairo Ortiz and Zander Temple and from Pack 356, Jacob Hess and (not present Hondo Sadler). The Pack also presented each scout with a “mess kit” which they will use when camping with the Boy Scouts Troop 194.

After the Arrow of Light ceremony was over, the entire group then moved to the church courtyard and the Crossover ceremony began. The Guide led the center of the courtyard and Cubmaster Brandon Below prepared each of the Arrow of Light recipients for their crossover into Boy Scout Troop 194 by removing their Cub Scout hat, slide, hat and blue shoulder epaulets.

The Chief and Assistant chief then called each boy and their parent one by one and boys were then led across a bridge which had all 12 Scout Laws painted on each board. The new boy scouts and their parent were welcomed into the troop as hunter green shoulder epaulets were placed on their uniform by Bill Meadows, Scoutmaster and Joett Morrison, Assistant Scoutmaster and Treasurer. Seven members from Troop 194 were present to welcome the newest boy scouts into the Troop.
