From more than one Scout to their Scoutmaster® or Mentor

We never could have come this far, if it had not been for you.
So we would like to thank you now -- for everything you do.

While climbing up the Eagle Trail, we sometimes went astray,
But you were right behind us there, to help us find our way.

Sometimes we had our own ideas, of how things should be run,
But you always kept us right on track, until the job was done.

And though we don’t always know, the perfect words to say,
We’d really like to pay you back, we know we’ll find a way.

This much we can tell you though, and our Word you can trust
We hope we’ll be the kind of Leaders you have been for us.

We may not often say it, but we hope you know its true,
We admire and respect you, too-- for everything you do.
