Pilot International is service organization in the United States and six other countries working together to improve the quality of life in local communities. The Pilot Club of Scott County was chartered in 1978, and its main focus is brain related disorders.
The local service projects of the Pilot Club include the Spelling Bee at the Scottsburg Middle School, the Senior Angel Tree for Christmas, the Brain Minders Program in all Scott County Kindergarten classes, a quarterly CIRCLES dinner, and other projects applied through a grant process.
The Brain Minders Program teaches good safety practices to kindergarten students. Coloring books and puppets, including The Wise Old Owl, Gerald Giraffe, Fiona Fox and Martin the Monkey, remind students to fasten seat belts, wear helmets, and to look before jumping and crossing the road.
On April 9th the Pilot Club and the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club will hold a Bicycle Safety Rodeo at the Scott County YMCA. Local Fire Fighters and Police Officers will provide safety instructions and guidance for beginning bicycle riders as they negotiated a course at the Y.
