WEST ORANGE, NJ -- West Orange Cub Scout Pack 107 recently honored eight of their Webelos Two who earned their Arrow of Light Award at their Blue and Gold Banquet on May 1.

The Arrow of Light award is the highest rank a Cub Scout can achieve, and is the only Cub Scout badge which can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform. The Arrow of Light symbol is a half sun with seven rays above an arrow, which represent the seven virtues of life according to the Boy Scouts: wisdom, courage, self-control, justice, faith, hope and love.  

The Arrow of Light awards were followed by the Crossover ceremony led by Cub Master Oren Levin, which represents the Cub Scout leaving the Pack to become a Boy Scout.

The ceremony begins with the scout removing their Webelo neckerchief, then walking across a wooden bridge with twelve planks representing the twelve tenets of the Scout Law: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.

Their family awaits them on the other side of the bridge where a member of the Boy Scout Troop welcomes them and presents them with a Boy Scout neckerchief and manual. Scout Master Mike Kerwin from West Orange Boy Scout Troop 6 welcomed the boys. They then signed their name on the bridge to join the ranks of the boys who crossed before them. 

This year’s recipients of the Arrow of Light award from Pack 107 are:

  • Abraham Bariagaber
  • Shane Donagher
  • Lucca Ginocchio
  • Daniel Levin
  • Augustine “Gus” Peterson
  • Charlie Peterson
  • Andrew Strom
  • Alexander Tornopsky

The evening also included rank advancement of all theCub Scouts. Advancement is achieved when a scout completes all of the required adventures for their Den. Congratulations to Cub Scout Pack 107's Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos One for all their achievements.
