When she moved to the area in 2007, Elizabeth Copeland wanted to remain active in Pilot International.
She had joined in 1985, when a friend invited her to attend in Waycross, Ga.
Copeland helped with community service projects such as building a gazebo to beautify a city park, and she looked forward to such community service.
But there were no Pilot clubs here, and she missed it.
“So I contacted the state officials and asked how to establish a club,” she said.
While the local chapter has seven members, Copeland hopes to attract more.
