(hit drum once)

Den Leader: Do I hear the East Wind?
East Wind: I am the East Wind. I wish you well. I have spread the story of your fun and happiness as Bobcats, Wolves, and Bears in Cub Scouting with Pack [number], and how you lived up to the Cub Scout promise.
(hit drum once)

Den Leader: Do I hear the West Wind?
West Wind: I am the West Wind. I would like everyone to know that these Cub Scouts going into the Webelos den did not walk the trail of Cub Scouting alone. Each had the help of his parents.
(hit drum once)

Den Leader: What are all the winds saying?
All Winds: (All the winds in unison.) We wish you the best of luck in the Webelos den.

Den Leader: The purpose of Webelos is to prepare scouts for their adventures ahead in Boy Scouts. Each Webelos scout can earn the Webelos badge and Cub Scouting's highest award, the Arrow of Light Award.

Den Leader: Webelos, welcome these Bears into your tribe by putting on their Webelos neckerchief and slide, and cap, and giving him his Webelos Scout Handbook.
