Thank you Troop 258

Thank you for such a nice send off last Wednesday. The desktop gift was beautiful. Jeanette and I were very surprised and  touched by your continual support. Thank you all!

In retiring from scouting, I do so with mixed thoughts. I will miss all the adventures; weekend camping, plant sales, summer camps, service projects, Klondike Derbies and scoutmaster conferences. I will miss the Wednesday meetings, along with the enthusiasm of the younger scouts and the determination displayed by our young men earning their Eagle.

Troop 258 has the great fortune to have excellent leaders and very supported Scout families. It is this support structure that makes the troop great. Many of my closest friends are through scouting.

Mr Gawron will do an excellent job as Scoutmaster and I know you give him the same support and help that you gave me. Mrs. Peters is off to a great start and I know you will continue to support her as you have Mrs. Morris. Mr. Havens will need your assistance as you have helped Mr. Costa in the past.

To the leaders of the troop - thank you for your friendship, help and patience. It has been my honor and privilege working with you.

To the Scout families - as Mr. Reinknecht would say it, it’s like an express train, just jump on, hang on, and you and your son will have a great ride.

To the Scouts - thank you for sharing your adventures with us. Continue with your paths.

Yours In Scouting.
