Pilot Club members played Pilot bingo. The cards were designed by Cindy Meitler. She called out such words as B - service, I - do more, N - volunteer, G - Pilot, O - care more, etc. instead of numbers that are located on traditional bingo cards. This provided an opportunity for Pilots to share companionship, gossip and lots of jokes and laughter. Note expressions on the faces of the pilots on the far right -fun, fun, fun & much laughter.

Betty Schneider and Ros Neeland work on the fleece blankets after the business meeting on Deptember 3, 2019.

Pilots tie fleece blankets for the “Warm Embrace Project” for the children in foster care at DCF. There are over 900 children in the foster system in a 40 county area that DCF serves. 20 fleece blankets of various bright colors and characters were tied after a business meeting at Perkins Courtyard. Working on the blankets provided a wonderful opportunity to do a community project and allowed the Pilots a chance to gossip and catch up family events.
