Florida District of Pilot International.
Mission Statement of Pilot International
To serve by furthering Pilot International’s humanitarian efforts
through charitable, educational and research programs in
communities throughout the world.
Collier County Commissioner Andy Solis, Esq. will serve as Grand Marshall for this year’s NAMI WALK on Saturday, February 17th. He has emerged as a strong advocate for addressing mental health issues as a priority in our community. Our Pilot Club of Naples members have volunteered for the NAMI Walk over the years as a partner organization. Be sure to sign up as a volunteer at the February meeting. It is a great opportunity for Pilot to have a presence and enjoy community service and public awareness. And it is fun.
The Pilot Scholarship House Foundation has almost reached the goal to provide each of the four houses with a desk for every resident in the DESKS FOR SUCCESS project. There is still opportunity for anyone to contribute to this project. The houses will be closed for the summer for repairs, etc. The GKP house will receive a new sign and bike racks for the bikes they received this year from Bikes for Tykes. Sue and Joan visited the FGCU house with a cake and a pie to ease the stress of finals. Congratulations to the three students; Rachel, Hope and Natalie who are graduating. Three new students will be moving in. We look forward to welcoming them in August.
Something good to know!
