The Pilot Club of St. Augustine initiated four members at its Jan. 21 meeting, with Debbie Thompson, North Central Florida lieutenant governor, conducting the ceremonies.

Welcomed into membership were CeCe Reigle, Tadzia Alexander, Jennifer Birge and Faith Tiberio.

The Pilot Club of St. Augustine is a service organization established in the oldest city in 1936. Its projects range from placement of the War Memorial in the Plaza de la Constitucion to support of youth programs including 4-H and √ā¬†establishment of an Anchor Club at St. Joseph Academy.

A second highlight of the meeting at Le Pavillon was a report by Rene Naughton, a past governor of the Florida District of Pilot and the club’s princess representative at the district’s fall council session in Ocala.
