When Ceremonies are Appropriate

There are many occasions for ceremonies. This is only a partial list of the possibilities:

  • Awards, campfires, legends.
  • Flag ceremonies.
  • Patriotic ceremonies.
  • Opening and closing ceremonies.
  • Membership--renewal or additions, departure of old members.
  • Holidays, dedications, commemorative days.
  • Rededication to group ideals and concepts.

You can use ceremonies to mark any special occasion, though they ought not be abused. The program should be punctuated by ceremonies, not dominated by them.

Original poems, original songs, old poems and songs, all can be used to make up the ceremony content. A balance of songs and words ought to be sought.
