Join us for this Blue & Gold Banquet. The purpose of the blue and gold banquet is to celebrate the pack's anniversary, recognize the scouts and their achievements. recognize pack leaders and other adults who have been instrumental in the pack's success, and inspire the leaders, Scouts, and parents. It brings families together for an evening of fun and inspiration.
In 1933 "Cub Leaders' Round Table" suggested Parent / Cub dinners. Soon thereafter, Pack 1 of Michigan City started a tradition of pot-lucks where the dads were to bring utensils made of wood; whittled by the Cub with his dad. In the 1930s father / son 'bean dinners' and 'Cub family dinners' began to become commonplace. Finally, in 1943 the name "Blue and Gold Banquet" first appeared in BSA literature, and became synonymous with "celebrating the birthday of Scouting."
