Thank You
Dear Parents and Scouts of Pack 99,
I wanted to thank everyone again for the slideshow and plaque given to me last night.  I wish I would have been more eloquent last night when thanking all the leaders and the scouts for the memories that I have from serving your children.  I could not have done it without a strong leadership team behind me who made my job easy.  I especially want to thank Mike Phillips for putting the slideshow together and to George Stockburger who agreed to be my sidekick a few years ago but has put much more effort than I ever meant for him to while making sure that I had everything I needed for each meeting.
It’s easy to lose focus of the whole purpose of why I have done this year after year, but when you all made me pause to think back and look down at the large group of scouts in front of me, I was overwhelmed by the thought of having a small influence on each of the scouts there and the groups of scouts that had come before them.
I will see you all again at the Memorial Day parade and at the Crossover Ceremony in June.  I also thank Tony for stepping up to be the Cubmaster.  I know he will do a fantastic job and come up with new ideas to keep the pack vibrant.
Yours in Scouting,
Steve Matz
P.S.  I would also like to thank Colonial Farms again for providing the cake last night.
