Chuck and Boaz (14)
For the ceremony, Chuck (along with the other Webelo’s parents) made these arrows as keepsakes for the boys (though Chuck was the only parent to have to make multiple arrows). On the far left you see a claw to represent earning the Bobcat, the arrowhead is for the Arrow of Light, the four pieces of leather you see with beads represent each category of badges, with one bead for each badge earned. Each boy’s arrow is customized according to his own achievements in Webelos.
Chuck got inspired at the last moment and burned the boy’s names into their arrows.
Thursday was such a neat evening, attending the ceremony. They had a slideshow of the boys (many of the boys started out as Tigers, so there were photos of them as six-year-olds in Cub Scouts!), and a video where each of the boys spoke of their favorite parts of Webelos. Chuck presented the boys with their arrows and the boys presented us with handmade cards saying, thank you, and Arrow of Light pins for the mothers.
I can’t wait to see what their Boy Scout years bring.by
