Robert J. Mazzuca, a retired chief Scout executive of the Boy Scouts of America, will be the keynote speaker for the 13th annual William Penn Luncheon at the Indiana Country Club on May 9.

Since 2001, the William Penn Luncheon has honored business and political leaders in the Indiana area with the Distinguished Citizen Award while raising funds to support the Boy Scouts of America in Indiana County. The 2013 honorees will be the Patchin family, owners of Royal Oil and Gas Corp.

“The campaign team and I are very excited about this year’s event,” said Dan Fleming, luncheon chairman.

“The Patchins have been strong supporters of the Boy Scouts and countless other organizations in our county for decades. I could not imagine a family more deserving of this award.

“In addition to the Patchin Family, we are honored that Mr. Mazzuca has agreed to be our keynote speaker, and I look forward to hearing about his experience as the chief Scout executive,” Fleming said. “This will be an event that nobody will want to miss.”

Mazzuca began his professional scouting career in Modesto, Calif., where he served as a district executive and Exploring executive.

He held various positions in local councils, including Scout executive of the Greater Pittsburgh Council, which is now the Laurel Highlands Council. Mazzuca also served as the national director of the development group at the National Council prior to becoming chief Scout executive in 2007.

He retired from professional Scouting in 2012.
