Pilot Club

Pilot Club of Madison's monthly meeting and Valentine's Day celebration was held Feb. 14 at the Madison Senior Center. Several community projects and proposals were reviewed with a feature presentation by Tom Pritchard of the Madison Area Bicycle Club.

Pilot club members expressed interest in collaboration with MABC and other community organizations to facilitate a "bicycle rodeo," for both children and adults to promote bicycling awareness. The event would specifically address issues of safety, bicycle maintenance and health benefits. The club hopes to host the event prior to end of school year and summer break. Other community organizations interested in being a part of the event can visit the MABC website, www.madisonbicycleclub.org, for additional information.

Nominations for club officers for the 2013-2014 term were accepted. Induction ceremonies were held for new members Candice Fulk and Sharon McCoy.

Pilot Club of Madison's 45th Annual Old Court Days will be held May 24-26. Booth space is still available at $75.00 per booth. To register or for more information call Dee Gauger at (812) 273-6226 or Linda McDaniels at (812) 273-0550.
