Leland Parks and Recreation has been recognized by the state for innovative programming.

The award is given out each year to the parks and recreation department which provides a program that brings together the community. Leland’s award winning program was titled “The Leland We Don’t Know”.

Parks and recreation manager Niel Brooks said, “We took folks from the older part of town, long time residents, and then folks from the newer parts of town – a lot of the folks from the newer developments that we have along 17 and other places in town and got those folks together on some bus tours around town. That way they could learn about different parts of the community that they might not be so familiar with.”

The program was so popular the parks and recreation department has a waiting list and will add more bus tour to meet the demand.

CFPUA cuts ribbon on new water filtration plant

If you receive water services from the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority, you may have noticed your water has gotten a little softer.

The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority cut the ribbon Friday on their new nano-filtration plant. The plant was designed to soften the water for the customers.

“Nano is also referred to as the softening membrane. One of the primary purposes is to soften the water to take the hardness out, the calcium content, and to make it softer so you don’t have the spotting and the film that gets on the car, the windshield, glass and things of that nature. Makes the water easier to use and not have to be soften at the home,” said drinking water superintendent Mike Richardson.

The plant is only providing service to the north side of the county right now. Eventually, they plan to interconnect the surface and ground water system to transfer water back and fourth to service everyone.

Friday is a night to remember victims of crime. Volunteers from the group Justice for Citizens were set up the First Baptist Church in Leland for a candlelight service.

This is the 14th annual service for the group founded by Birdie Frink after her daughter Amy was murdered in Brunswick County.

“We have families that have come every year and they say it’s good to be with other people going through the same thing they are. And there’s some healing I suspect. A lot of healing,” said Frink.

The service begins at 7:30 at First Baptist Church in Leland.
