Roundtable -

District Roundtable meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month @ 6:30pm in Leland, NC at Magnolia Greens Golf Course in the Club Room (located to the right of the clubhouse at 1800 Tommy Jacobs Drive, Leland, NC 28451).

Roundtables begin at 6:30pm with a gathering of all, to share council and district news.  We then split into our Cub Scout Roundtable and Boy Scout Roundtable.  Please be sure to have a representative from your unit to attend this monthly meeting.  It is very informative and vital to units staying up to date and current on Scouting.

Community Opportunity

American Legion Post 10  - David Hartley and the American Legion Post 10 would like to make their facility available to local scouting units.  The American Legion is interested in bringing a stronger presence of the Boy Scouts to Post 10.  They have some wonderful amenities to offer to the various troops located in our area along with, a wealth of experience from their organization.  Their banquet hall can hold up to 350 persons and they have an abundance of parking.  They’ve expressed interest in making their facilities available for unit fundraisers (carwashes, spaghetti dinner, etc.) and also boy scout recruitment activities.
