Blue & Gold Banquet

Our Blue and Gold Banquet is each years biggest event of Scouting.  We celebrate the birth of Scouting.  Our Cub Scouts entertain you with fun skits and songs and great food is enjoyed by all.  The purpose of the Blue and Gold Banquet is to commemorate the organization of the Boy Scouts of America in 1910 and to celebrate the birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts organization.  The banquet is traditionally held as the February pack meeting because Baden-Powell was born February 22, 1857. 

The term "Blue and Gold" is the name because those are the official colors of the Cub Scout organization.  Blue represents truth and loyalty, and gold represents good cheer, happiness, and helping others!
