SAINT AUGUSTINE – The Pilot Club of St. Augustine has received a $1,000 grant from Capital City Bank Group Foundation for the club’s work in the community.
The check was presented by Janette Wagner, president of the Putnam-St. Johns Market of Capital City Bank at the Hastings branch, accepted by Vicki Sellner, president-elect; Melanie Morrison, service leader of the bank’s Hastings branch and immediate past treasurer of the Pilot Club; and Sara Hetherington, club treasurer. Lynne Stephenson, immediate past governor of the Florida Pilot District and a past president of the St. Augustine club, wrote the grant.
The Pilot Club of St. Augustine, established here in 1936, serves the community in numerous ways from support of those dealing with brain injuries and youth organizations to recognition of the military through the War Memorial located in the Plaza de la Constitucion. Scholarships are awarded yearly with the 2019 honors totaling more than $11,000, the major contributions from Scott and Elizabeth Kophamer of Hester’s Abbey company.
Meetings are held the first and third Wednesday of the month at Applebee’s. Jo Brown is the current president.
