Pilot International Mission: Pilot International transforms communities by developing youth, providing service & education and uplifting families.
The Pilot Club of Naples was Chartered in 1959 in the
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.
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!

“On November 28, 2017 Pilot International will participate in our first #GivingTuesday. We are excited at this opportunity to expand our outreach and our social media footprint to communities around the world!” Each week, for Giving Tuesday, a Pilot member will share a story about a favorite service project.
They ask you to share and add a quote about why you support Pilot International #PIGives. You may be featured with your story next week.
Stay connected on Constant Contact with both PI and the Florida District and you will receive the stories each week along with all the current information you need to know. If you are not connected with Constant Contact with both PI and the Florida District, you are missing so much.

2017 Lights of Love
18th Annual Lights of Love
Sunday, December 17th.
For 17 years, our members have reached out to their friends, family and the community to offer them to purchase a light for $5 each in memory of or in honor of a loved one. Our Service Men and Women are always remembered. This is a fundraising project that we look forward to each year. The tree is lit during our Christmas Party after the names are read and a special poem is presented.
