Thank you for all of your gifts and thoughts at my Scoutmaster Retirement Lunch
A Scouting Thank You
It has been both an honor and my sincere pleasure to have served as the Scoutmaster at Troop 33. I have had the great fortune to know and work with your sons which has forever enriched my life. Time spent on the trail, under the stars, passing on Scoutcraft Skills or presenting episodes in my life during a Scoutmaster minute is something that I will always treasure.
It is my sincere hope that someday many of these young men will return to Scouting, perhaps when they have their own sons. Those that do return will have an opportunity to share time with their sons during this important period in their life. In truth, although the boys end up learning significant and valuable life skills, involved parents gain just as much as their sons do.
Your collective involvement in Scouting is the tie that binds this wonderful legacy that is passed on from generation to generation. When a boy becomes a young man and can look at himself honestly and know that he can believe in his ability to overcome life’s obstacles we will together have given him his most valuable gift.
Thank you all for everything that you do for Scouting and for the wonderful opportunity to add this experience to the tapestry of my life!
Tim Leong / Scoutmaster Emeritus - Troop 33
