Rayville Cub Scout Pack Meeting, ca 1958
The Richland Beacon-News, Rayville, Louisiana 08 Feb 1958, Sat • Page 2
During the past month the five dens had been studying the movies, with the groups completing several projects which gave insight into making of movies, use of the camera, principal of the lens, etc. The sixth den, the Webelos Den, under Mr. Bob Gates, had continued their study of the Boy Scout Tenderfoot requirements.
Skit for the evening was presented by Mrs. Carey Ellis’ Den 1. In a charming performance, the group gave a take-off of a Hollywood premiere, complete with outstanding celebrities including Elvis Presley, Matt Dillon and Chester, Liberace, and others. The premiere itself, accompanied by appropriate background music, was an old- fashioned melodrama, and featured the tender heroine, stalwart hero, trouble-beset father, and the villain who threatens to foreclose the mortgage. Assisting the den mother in preparing this presentation were Mrs. George Speight and Mrs. Hollis Venable.
Den 1 was awarded the attendance trophy, and closing ceremony was by Mrs. J. L. Howard’s Den 5. Cubmaster Carey Ellis, Jr., presented the following awards to Cubs who had earned them during the past month:
