In addition to longevity, the Pilot Club is known for their local service projects, which have changed and expanded over the years, Belcher said. This year the club&8217;s biggest effort is helping to fund Project Lifesaver in Marengo County.

According to Belcher, a main focus for service projects from Pilot Club International is on efforts dealing with brain disorders and helping people with disabilities.
