You may have noticed the braided shoulder cord that serving Den Chiefs wear. Regular den chiefs wear one of two different color patterns, depending on whether your den members are Cub Scouts (Tigers, Wolves, and Bears) or Webelos. There is actually a third color pattern of shoulder cord, though, which is quite rare and nobody in our troop has it yet. This is red, white, and blue, and signifies a recipient of the Den Chief Service Award. The worksheet for completing this award is attached. To receive it you must, among other things, have served as a Den Chief for a full year. Last year Buffalo, Parker, Sam T., Liam, and Deven met this requirement (let me know if I am forgetting anyone else).
I encourage you all to complete as much as you can of the attached application for this big award and come to me for the leader signatures. Once you earn the Den Chief Award you can wear the red, white, and blue shoulder cord as long as you are a boy scout (whether or not you continue to serve as a Den Chief)! If you have a Den Chief cord or booklet that you no longer need, please return it to me so it can be used by another scout.
