LELAND, N.C. – The Cape Fear Council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) held its first Leadership Breakfast in Leland on Wednesday, May 26, 2010. The Cape Fear Council has held similar events in Wilmington and other nearby communities. The event raised nearly $4,000 in pledges and contributions for the Cape Fear Council. The Boy Scouts of America celebrated its 100th Anniversary in February.
Frank Williams, a Brunswick County native and president of Pioneer Strategies, Inc., served as Chairman of the event. Capeside Animal Hospital and the House of Wine and Cheese were Sponsors of the breakfast; State Farm Agent Franklin Rouse, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage’s Leland Office, Pioneer Strategies and New Carolina Chiropractic were Patrons.
“My first leadership role was serving as a Patrol Leader in Boy Scout Troop 265 here in Leland,” says Williams. “The Boy Scouts do a tremendous job of teaching young men about character, integrity, responsibility and citizenship – values that our society needs more than ever. I am proud to have helped organize this event to support the Boy Scouts in southeastern North Carolina. I am especially excited to have served as Chairman of the first leadership breakfast held in Leland. It is our hope that this year’s breakfast will be the building block for even more successful events in years to come.”
