Area residents were given a bountiful breakfast Saturday thanks to local Boy Scouts Troop 157.

The troop held their annual pancake feed at Emporia's First Christian Church Saturday morning. The event raises funds to help send troop members to summer camp and funds several other programs including campouts and high adventure activities which contain more extreme activities for older troop members.

Troop 157 Senior Patrol Leader Nicholas Marcum discusses the benefits for troops in attending summer camp opportunities.

 

According to Scout Master Leon Bryson, while the event is foremost a fundraiser, it also allows troop members an opportunity to build their social skills interacting with residents. Bryson believes strong social skills are essential for success in the future.

 

Along with the hearty breakfast, the troop also put on a food drive for the second consecutive year in honor of a former member of First Christian Church Leroy Garnett. Bryson explains why holding the food drive on top of the pancake feed was so important to the troop.

 

Totals from the event will be announced at a later time. Photos are available with the story at KVOE.com.
