Blue & Gold

Celebrate the Birthday of Scouting with a Blue & Gold Banquet

February is Scouting Anniversary Month! Throughout the month, Packs celebrate the birthday of Scouting with their annual Blue & Gold Banquet! Check out these top 6 tips  to making your Blue & Gold the highlight of the year!

6 Tips for the Best Blue & Gold

1. Have a Blue & Gold Organizer. -This is a great role for a new volunteer to take on since it has a definitive timeline. It takes some weight off the Committee and gives a parent a chance to help out in a fun way.

2. Have a plan! – Planning ahead will save you lots of headaches and prevent last minute scrambling . Check out this post with 6 different planning guides.

3. Have a great theme. – A theme can liven up traditions and help Scouts have a blast. Read 8 themes your Cub Scouts will love & visit our local Scout Shop for lots of decorations and supplies!

4. Don’t reinvent the wheel. – There are lots of great resources just a google search away. Check out the Cub Scout Pinterest Page for lots of ideas.

5. Schedule Presentations. –  Make sure to let your District Executive know when your Blue & Gold will be so they can help schedule your FOS presentation. Not sure who to contact? Give us a call at 408-638-8300.

6. Keep it Simple, Make it Fun! – Most importantly, the Blue and Gold should be fun for adults and the Scouts!
