A MESSAGE FROM
Welcome to the Florida District Website. It is here that our members from around the state can get valuable information, register for our Fall Council and District Convention. This year all forms on the website will be writable which will make it much easier to email the forms as needed.
New for our District this year is our Facebook page. Like us at Florida District Pilot International and keep up with our District and all of our clubs.
Our 30 clubs are home to over 800 members all over the State of Florida. Each club has their own projects with most supporting people and families affected by Brain Injuries/Diseases. Many support Project Lifesaver or a similar program, hold Brain Power Walks and promote Brain Health to Children and Seniors with our Brain Minder program.
Our Anchor program is similar for students in middle or high school. Florida District is the largest
Anchor District in Pilot International. The Anchor Club of Miami Springs has been chosen as the Pilot International Outstanding Anchor Club of the year several times most recently in 2012 - 2013. The first weekend in March every year over 300 Anchors and Pilots attend the Florida District Anchor Convention where they conduct business of the district, elect officers for the following year, attend workshops and work on a state project which is selected each year.
We are proud to say that the Florida District is the only District in Pilot International to have our Pilot Scholarship House Foundation. We maintain 3 scholarship houses, The Mary Ellen Thomas house at the University of Florida in Gainesville, The Laverne Weddle house at Florida State University in Tallahassee, and our newest house, the Gresham Kite house at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers. Residents for these houses apply through and are chosen by the Southern Scholarship Foundation. Florida Pilots support the residents of these houses by sending gift cards, household supplies and whatever else they need. Our Foundation Board works with Southern Scholarship Foundation to maintain these houses.
Our Pilots and Anchors are proud of our commitment to our communities. We enjoy what we do and love helping others.
Please join us as we Focus on Pilot in 2013 – 2014.
