Anyone have something that they've used in the past?
I one time saw a cartoon which showed a group of Eskimos standing around a
grizzled old Eskimo with the caption "And so, brave warrior Ooklak, at your
retirement, in honor of your many years of long service to our tribe, we have
decided to give you a ten second head start." :)
When I retired as SM, the boys in the troop presented me a troop neckerchief
signed by every member of the troop. They also said that they would now wear
the troop neckerchief with a knot in the bottom to honor me.
