We are off to a good start this new Pilot year with Plan of Works discussed and voted on at the July meeting. Attached is a copy of the approved Plan of Works. As you can see, we will have a busy, but fun and productive year. We are going to try some new fund-raisers - they have been very successful for other Pilot clubs, and those clubs have shared their ideas and tips for success. The members that were out of town or that couldn't make the revised July meeting date, I placed you on a committee, based on previous years or how I thought your talents best fit the committee. Of course, if you would prefer a different committee, it can be easily changable.

I am both trhilled and privileged to serve as your Executive Committee Representative for this year.
at the Ocala Hilton Mark your calendars now and plan to attend! The theme is………
PILOTS GOT TALENT!!! We need to figure out a skit, lip sync, dance or something to do as a group and show what kind of fun and talent we REALLY have in this group!! Share any idea you have so we can get something put together instead of waiting until the last minute!
As I look forward to getting to know each of you, please allow me to share a little about myself. I grew up in a nurtuting family from which I developed a true love for service. Valuable experiences were also gained as a Girl Scout and Anchor Club member. Grwoing up with a friend whose brother had a mental diability, I was drawn to the field of Special Education. It has been my privilege to teach students with a wide range of disabilities and to direct a couple of summer day camps for special needs children. Each child was unique and "gifted" in his/her own way, and I learned as much from them as they did from me. Most recently, I served as a Parent Coordinator and a literacy instructor. I continue to enhance literacy skills in adults so that they can be more effective in reading with their children. For me, PI is an outlet for service and friendship that I shall always treasure. It is always amazing to discover the varied ways that Pilots carry out our mission to communtities around the world! May you be enriched by the lives you touch through Pilot Service!
