Pilots go green for St. Patrick’s Day

by Theresa Bridges

The Pilot Club of Louisville met on Thursday, March 14 at Lake Tiak
O’Khata with tables decorated with green shamrocks, leprechaun hats,
and pots of gold in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Not to be outdone by
our decorations, club members showed their Irish by wearing green
scarves, green hats, green sweaters, green T-shirts, green earrings,
green pins and green glasses.

The Safety and Health Committee Chair, Paula Fulton, introduced the
speaker, Martha Wooten who presented the program on Alzheimer’s. Ms.
Wooten works for Community Counseling of Starkville, and gave some
startling statistics about this debilitating disease. Community
Counseling has many activities for seniors, such as Wii contests, art
and enrichment programs, hand-eye coordination projects to name a
few. Ms. Wooten asked that any person in our area who needs daytime
supervision/care, is socially isolated or has inadequate support
systems is encouraged to call Brighter Days in Louisville at
662-773-3638 for more information.

Pilot members are busy this week making the final preparations for
our annual pageant which will be held Saturday, March 23 at 6:00 p.m.
at the Louisville High School Auditorium. The Star Spangled Beauties
Pageant has many young contestants who are looking forward to showing
the audience how they can shine like stars on our patriotic stage.

A business meeting followed with news from Pilot International and
President DeLaine Woodruff asked members to attend the upcoming
District Pilot Convention in Tupelo in April. The meeting concluded
with our motto, “True Course Ever!”
