PRESIDENTS MESSAGE ————HAPPY VALENTINE DAY

My, the Pilot Year is flying by.  It is time to elect our Nominating Committee for the 2013-2014 Year at the February meeting.

This event is in honor of our “Gail Gray”, whose granddaughter Sunshine Wynn owns the home. The Pilot Light Home Board, at its January meeting, approved the plan to proceed with the “Open House”.  All Pilot Light Home Board Members who are Pilot Club Members will serve on a committee to make detailed plans for the event.  The first meeting is planned for February 13, 2013.  You will be up-dated about the plans as soon as they are completed.
