The Patter ~~~~ Pilot Club Of Ocala ~~~~ July 2012 Edition PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

2012 - 2013 Club Officers President - Cindy Williams

Hello Pilots,

President Elect - Crystal Bratcher

It's Time! It's time to re-charge our batteries, reve up our engines and begin the race toward our goals. If you were not Recording Secretary - Nancy Bierema able to attend the Officer Installation meeting last month, you Corresponding Secretary - Debbie Thompson missed the announcement that we are having a contest this Treasurer - Bonnie Palmieri year. We randomly drew names for the two teams that night. I asked each team to meet briefly to pick their team name, select 2011-2013 Director - Helen Helvenston a team captain, and set a time and place for a Plan of Works 2012-2104 Director - Lisa Anderson meeting. The team names selected were: the Swinging 2012-2013 Director - Bonnie Palmieri Pendulums - team captain is Crystal Bratcher, and the Tick Tockers - team captain is Lisa Anderson. Plan of Works 2012 - 2013 Special Appointees meeting was set to be one hour prior to the Ice Cream social at Membership - Barbara Hassen Marion Woods on Saturday, June 30th. Since several members knew they would be out of town that day, the two Projects - Helen Helvenston teams brainstormed that night and got a good start on the Plan Fundraising - Carole Vitale of Works ideas. The Plan of Works meetings did take place at Anchor - Missy Ridgway 1:00 on June 30th and will be reviewed by the budget committee prior to PI convention. Chaplain Parliamentarian - DJ Ferguson PIF Representative - Carole Vitale Patter Editor - Missy Ridgway

This Patter includes the list of members of each team, rules of the contest, and the determination of points. Each member has been/will be given a scorecard to keep track of their individual points. Be sure to look to see what team you are on. I'm looking forward to a productive and fun year! Get Ready, Set, Go! Cindy Williams President

Installation of 2012-2013 Officers We started our evening off with a Pot Luck Dinner, which is ALWAYS a winner Pilots are such good cooks!! We then welcomed Mary Purdy as our Installing Officer and enjoyed the time together as our new officers were installed. We are lucky to have such wonderful members willing to lead us into another year of service and friendship.

Ice Cream Social at Marion Woods We served over 50 bowls of ice cream and made some really delicious looking banana splits and sundaes! The residents also enjoyed searching for words in the special Word Search Puzzle. If they participated in the Word Search they then were awarded a prize and many were excited to pick a puzzle book or journal. This gave them the opporutnity to fill their tummy with yummy ice cream, enjoy the converstaion of friends and excersize their brains all in one afternoons - this was a successful project for our club!
