Winner of the Historical Society of Michigan’s “Outstanding Michigan History Publication” for 2010

In 2010 the Boy Scouts of America will celebrate 100 years as the largest and most successful youth movement America has ever known. Scouting has always been strong in West Michigan, where it has taught thousands of young men, and later, young women, the skills and values necessary for successful lives. Many more thousands of adult leaders, past and present, have contributed their time and talents to preserve and pass on the Scouting way of life.

For the first time, A Legacy for the Future: Reminiscences of Scouting in West Michigan weaves known historical facts and personal narratives into one united tale told through both text and illustrations.

What a treat! Tim Todish and the committee have done an outstanding job. This is a staggering achievement.
The Hon. Hugh W. Brenneman Jr.
President, Gerald R. Ford Council, B.S.A.

Enjoy this book. Share it with the Scouts in your life, current and former. And celebrate an organization that continues to teach the boys and young men in our community that above all to live honorably is to serve others.
Dick DeVos
President, The Windquest Group
