WARREN, NJ - Twelve Webelo Scouts received the Arrow of Light at Warren Cub Scout Pack 182's annual  Blue & Gold Dinner on Tuesday, February 28 at Warren Middle School.

The Blue & Gold Dinner is a Cub Scout tradition celebrating the Pack’s anniversary, thanking pack leaders and other adults who have helped the pack, and to inspire the leaders, scouts, and parents.  The event brings families together for an evening of fun and cheer.

 

The Pack was pleased to host special guests, Warren Mayor Carolann Garafola, Linda Pregenzer from their sponsoring organization The Rotary Club and Officer Brandon Sebastian from the Warren Police Department who gave some opening remarks to get the evening started.    The main focus of the event was the Arrow of Light Ceremony and the Bridging of Webelo Arrow of Light recipients from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.  The Arrow of Light is the highest award in Cub Scouts.

The Arrow of Light with its seven rays streaming from it represent the seven virtues of life: 

 

WISDOM. Having wisdom doesn't mean that a person is smarter than others. It means that he uses what he knows to live a better life. 

 

COURAGE. Courage does not mean you have no fear of danger. It means that you can face danger despite your fear. 

 

SELF-CONTROL. This means being able to stop when you have had enough of something, such as eating, playing, or even working too much. 

 

JUSTICE. Justice means being fair with others we play and work with, regardless of who they are. 

 

FAITH. Faith is belief in God and things we cannot see but feel are true. 

 

HOPE. Hope means to look forward to good things you believe will happen. You hope for better things tomorrow, but at the same time you work hard today to make them happen. 

 

LOVE. There are many kinds of love. Love of family, home, fellow men, God, and country. Every kind of love is important for a full and happy life. 

 

By doing your best to live by these seven virtues, you will find a happier and more fulfilling life. 

 

Pack 182 was proud to present this honor to twelve Webelo Scouts and to celebrate their hard work proving they are ready for the new challenges that Boy Scouts will offer them going forward.  Several Boy Scouts from Warren Boy Scout Troop 228 were in attendance to welcome their new peers.
