Cassville's Troop 76 Cub Scout members advance

Wednesday, July 29, 2015
Cub Scouts Victor Sutton-Wolf, left, and Connor Annecharico were recognized Thursday in the annual and traditional Neckerchief Ceremony for advancing from the rank of Wolf Scout to Bear Scout. As a Cub Scout grows older and moves up the Scouting trail, rank badges and changes in uniform show progress, one of which is the neckerchief. To advance to the next rank, Scouts must complete an extensive list of requirements involving civic, community, interpersonal communication, character, family, safety and outdoor activities, among others. The Bear neckerchief is blue and stands for truth, loyalty and obedience. During the ceremony, the boys were presented with their new Bear badges, and replaced their Wolf neckerchiefs and hats with new Bear attire. Annecharico was also presented with a Cyber Chip badge. To earn the badge, he had to complete a series of activities to learn about Internet and online safety. Cubmaster Dawn Annecharico presented the awards at the American Legion building.

Cubmaster Dawn Annecharico presents Webelo Cub Scout Hunter Annecharico with a computer belt loop at the annual Boy Scouts awards ceremony Thursday at the American Legion. To earn the belt loop, Annecharico had to complete a series of activities to learn about the parts of a computer, how to operate it and how to prepare and print a document. Annecharico was also recognized for the work he accomplished as a second-year Webelo (We'll Be Loyal Scouts). The Webelo rank, the last trail of Scouting, is for fourth- and fifth-grade boys to prepare to join a Boy Scout troop while learning outdoor skills and participating in adventures. As part of their training, Scouts learn to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, reverent, and to do their best.
