Welcome to the Future . .
The Future of the Pilot Club of Naples and the Naples Pilot Foundation, Inc.
I am reaching out to everyone to take some time to think about the future of the Pilot Club of Naples. Our Florida Governor Charlotte Edenfield has a “theme” for this year. It is “Welcome to the Future”. We can direct our Club in new directions. We can do projects that we have never done before. And then there is fund raising; we need new creative ideas to generate funds for our projects.
We will continue to “Influence positive change in communities throughout the world. To do this we come together in Friendship and Service, focusing on encouraging brain safety and health and supporting those who care for others”. This is the Pilot International mission statement.
The Florida District vision statement is: “To serve by furthering Pilot International’s humanitarian efforts through charitable, educational & research programs”.
Think about what you would like to be proud of when you say you are a member of the Pilot Club of Naples.
Leigh Anne Page has come up with some ideas. During a future meeting, we will have her share them.
We have a club with 62 years of history. We have come a long way since 1959.. We have a Scholarship House Project in our area with one house functioning and another one due to be available in 2022. We have a powerful Anchor Club with a strong future.
The members of the Pilot Club of Naples are humbled with the hard work of our Pilot member, Mike Nelson making a positive difference in the lives of so many. He is like a “gift” that was sent to our club and we all appreciate him.
We need to buckle our seatbelts because it promises to be a very exciting year. Mike has the energy and connections to take this Pilot Club to new heights. But the members are the working “body” of this board driven organization.
So let’s get busy and pull it together. . . .together. We can do this because we are stronger together.
