Greengs Pilots, It is one year from my first arcle and I just cannot believe that the me has passed so fast. We have had a great Pilot Year, and I would like to thank each one of you for your support throughout the year. Pilot Internaonal has made many changes to insure connued growth as an organizaon; we on the Club level embrace those changes and connue to be one of the strongest clubs in the Florida District. We have received many awards and have connued to grow with new members and expand our projects within the community and so again, I express my appreciaon to our membership and their desire to parcipate in achieving this level of success. We are however not all about the work, throughout this year we have had a lot of Pilot fun as well as supporng each other when days were not so sunny. As this Pilot year comes to conclusion and I bid you adieu as President I would be remiss in not saying that it has been an honor to serve. As I take my place on the 2013-14 Board of Directors, I will be ever mindful of my support for another wonderful Pilot Year and the members who step up and comprise our new Board of Directors. This year is not quite over:, we have a business meeng on Tuesday, June 11, a grand Fashion Show on June 15 and our Installaon of new officers on Tuesday, June 25. The installing officer is our Florida District, Governor-elect, Barbara McKenzie, let us all come out and welcome her as we embrace our 2013-2014 Board. Congratulaons Pilots for Thirty Years of Service! In Pilot Love and Friendship Joyce Conger President 2012-2013

Our Program Speaker this month was Dr. Mike Hill of Hill Family Chiropractic PA and his associate Dr. Eric Chance. Mike went over how keeping your spine in good condition helps to keep your brain in good condition and alert. We found out that there are lots of members that believe in Chiropractic care. Here are a few points that he brought to our attention: 1. The Brain is the fattiest organ of the body. 2. The body makes approximately a quart of spinal fluid a day. 3. The heart is the only organ not known for getting cancer.

Membership Wow! What a great year of membership we've had. I'm proud to tell you that we installed 11 new members this year and they are contribung to our organizaon in many ways. It's proof that our members think so highly of our Pilot Club that they invite their family and friends to check us out and encourage them to join and contribute to our community. Please connue to spread the word and we will eventually let everyone know that we have been the best kept secret in the community.

Keeping Up with our Scholarship Girls…. Both of our girls, Julia and Katrina have returned from the experience of a lifeFme in Norway and England. Facebook has hundreds of pictures featuring our girls and their adventure. On her return Julia told me that the two things that impressed her the most were the anFquity of Scandinavia in comparison to our very young country and the cliff they climbed to view the landscape. In London they visited the Globe Theatre and saw “The Tempest”. What a thrill. Our ladies will have thousands of stories to share with their housemates in the fall. As Pilots, we can be proud of all three of our gals. KaFe is sFll in Paris with the Campus Crusade for Christ and will be home in the near future. I hope all three will be able to come to one of our meeFngs to share their experiences not only of the life in the Scholarship Houses but also the summer adventures. The proud Aunt, Diane Welch

Dollars & Cents Here we are in the final minutes of the Pilot year. In case you have forgotten, it is dues time. If you have not paid your $110.00 for the 20132014 year yet, please have your check ready at the next meeting. The check has to be sent to Pilot International before June 30 so we have to have your commitment now. I have been authorized to send only the amount for the members who have paid or made a payment on their dues. Other financial news, the Luncheon/ Fashion Show is going to be a resounding success. As Treasurer, it is my personal goal to make up the funds necessary to honor our budgetary commitment for this year. This means we NEED EVERYONE IN THE CLUB SUPPORTING THIS EVENT. Pilots always come through and I am confident every member will support by not only attending but also bringing guests – in fact sponsoring a table would be even better. Pilots are the best! Your Dollar Diva, Diane Welch

Chaplin’s Corner “Progress is maintained by putting aside yesterday's glory and grind, and by focusing on tomorrow's challenging opportunities, while we keep the right attitude today and remember we're in it together!" This certainly describes the Pilot Club of the Halifax Area! We are successful because of the leadership and membership that we share within ourselves. We thank our past leaders for setting the example and leadership to follow, allowing us the opportunity to change and add new ideas along the way. We thank President Joyce Conger for her leadership this past year and look forward to new leadership, with JoEllen SalceRogers at the helm, to take us into the future!

Pilot InternaFonal and Pilot InternaFonal Founders Fund has introduced “The Yellow Rose Project” You can purchase a yellow rose for $5, in honor of special friends or loved ones. The order form can be found at All Yellow Rose Project proceeds under the PI ConvenFon tab. benefit Pilot InternaFonal and the PI

It’s amazing what $5 can do when all Pilots join together. It will help make the charitable and educaFonal endeavors of PI. A li(le bit can truly go a long way!

Have you looked around during one of our projects or events? Have you seen how great we look in our club shirts? Do you have yours? There are sll some available, get with Diane Welch at the next meeng. It’s amazing how quickly a year flies! We’ve accomplished so much that I could be intimidated by the prospect of becoming your President. Instead, I’m energized, and hoping that I can maintain the momentum established by President Joyce Conger and her Board. With your help, we’ll fundraise more, bring in many members, provide assistance to those in need, and continue to share the warmth and closeness that is unique to the Pilot Club of the Halifax Area. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this incredible Club! JoEllen Salce Rogers President Elect 2012-2013
