Long Description:
Footsteps To the Future was dedicated in September 2009. It was 3 years in the making and the dedication served as the kickoff for the celebration of 100 years of Scouting in America.

The statue is over 7 foot in height and shows two Scouts in uniform with the older of the two pointing to imply the sharing of knowledge. The sculptor captured details such as belts, patches and kerchiefs of the Scouts as well as an older-style canteen.

The placement of the statue is well situated over looking the beautiful Spokane River. Around the base is the Boy Scout Law.

A Scout is:

Trustworthy
Loyal - Helpful - Friendly
Courteous - Kind - Obedient
Cheerful - Thrifty - Brave
Clean - Reverent

There are several quotes on one side of the monument:

A child is a person who is going to carry on what you have started. He is going to sit where you’re sitting, and when you’re gone; attend to those things, which are important. You may adopt all the policies you please, but how they are carried out depends on him. He will assume control of your Cities, States, and Nation. He is going to move in and take over your churches, schools, universities and corporations. The fate of humanity is in his hands.

1861 - 1865 Abraham Lincoln - President United States of America

Teach a Scout to be skillful. Teach older Scouts to lead. Let Scouts lead. Never to anything a Scout can do.

Lord Robert Baden
1910 Founder of the World Scouting Movement

If you want to help teach boys to succeed...make things difficult. Teach them to be effective communicators. This is not kid's stuff.
