It was a very exciting day for Andrew and us. The ceremony was so personal and so special. The presentation of the arrow was so special with our message to our son to follow the arrow which faces right. so you can go on a straight path to reaching your dreams. These weren't the exact words but everyone was in tears. When he opened the package with the arrow of light plaque, we heard many ohs and awes from the crowd. The moment I will never forget was before the ceremonies even started, even before everyone arrived. Andrew was at the awards table and our pack has the exact plaque with candles attached from behind each ray of sun. As the cubmaster reads off what each of the seven rays of sun represent they light the candle corresponding with the ray. Anyway, before the start of the banquet Andrew was running his fingers over the placque and through the rays of sun and was in deep thought and admiration and when he received his very own he was speechless. He was very happy. My husband stained it a neutural color that brought out the wood tones. We left the rays natural without any yellow paint. It looked so rich. We placed the patches along the bottom of the plaque behind the arrow. The whole arrow and plaque is absolutely beautiful. Thank you in making this presentation to our son so special. It was what we wanted.
