CORE VALUES


Cub Scout Roundtable Leaders’ Guide

The core value highlighted this month is:

  • Positive Attitude: Being cheerful and setting our minds to look for and find the best in all situations. Through participating in various activities at the pack meeting and pack talent show, boys will gain a better understanding of the importance of having a positive attitude whether they are part of the audience or as the center of attention on stage..

COMMISSIONER’S CORNER


I never met a man I didn't like.

Will Rogers

"For the pinewood derby, we encourage boys to build their own cars. Making the car, having the boy do his best, and then racing it against the cars that his friends have made in a friendly environment is a practical application of the process of building character. When a boy makes a car out of a wood block, it is not what the boy does to the wood that is important, it is what the wood does to the boy." This quote sounds like it comes directly from my long time fellow NJ Scouter, Bill Smith, The RT Guy. It has been his credo for many years. -

Will Rogers

The youngest of eight children, William Penn Adair Rogers was born on November 4, 1879 in Oologah, Indian Territory (what is now Oklahoma). His parents, were part Cherokee. Growing up, Will learned to ride and lasso. He grew so talented with a rope, that he was placed in the Guinness Book of World Records for throwing three lassos at once. One went around the horse's neck, another circled around the rider, and the third flew under the horse.

Will attended school during his childhood. He dropped out to become a cowboy. Will traveled in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. He appeared at World's Fairs. He toured the vaudeville circuits in America, Canada and Europe. In 1908, Will married Betty Blake, with whom he had four children (Will Jr., Mary, Jim and Fred).

During his years in vaudeville and the Ziegfeld Follies, Will's act evolved. He enjoyed talking and reading. These were the basis for his humor, which focused on intelligent and amusing observations about people, life, the country and the government in simple language that his audience could understand. Audiences hankered for Will's humor more than roping feats.

He starred in 71 movies and wrote 4,000 syndicated columns and six books, became a prominent radio broadcaster and political commentator. He called politics "the best show in the world" and described Congress as the "national joke factory." His folksy humor and honest, intelligent observations about the government and America earned the respect of the nation. Because he was a nationally beloved figure and powerful political pundit, Will was known to US and world leaders.

Will's life was cut short on vacation with aviator Wiley Post,. This flight ended the life of America's most beloved celebrity on August 15, 1935 when Will and Wiley's flight crashed near Point Barrow, Alaska.

Will Rogers' political writings and sayings continue to remain relevant to politics today, and his wit and humor continue to endear him to audiences everywhere. To find out more about Will Rogers, fans can visit the Will Rogers Memorial Museum in Claremore, Oklahoma and the Will Rogers Dog Iron Ranch & Birthplace Home in Oologah, Oklahoma.

If you want to be successful, it's just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing. Will Rogers


Thinking about this quote - It is no wonder Baden-Powell was successful in starting Scouting. And that Scouting is most successful where those leading it believe in it and love it!!
Believe me, the Boys can tell if you don't!!
