The Highlands community turned out in large numbers last Saturday, as good weather contributed to a successful Pilot Club Fair at the elementary school.

This annual event raises money for the club to support their commuity activities, scholarships, and their national interest in brain injuries.

This year the event returned to a Fish Luncheon, cooked by the Henderson Cooking team, and a raffle, silent auction, live auction, crafts and community booths, entertainment on the stage, and equipment displays by the fire department.

Chairpersons for the event were Sheila McDonald and Jana Jones.

The Pilot Club Community Fair live auction set a record, bringing in about $3000. In addition, there was a large silent auction, and two gift baskets were given away as door prizes, to Tricia Scott and Patricia Brockinton.

The Raffle winners were #1 Gene Body – $500 Gift Card; #2 Delia Mullins – $300 Gift Card; and #3 Brenda Callin – $100 Gift Card.

Entertainers included singer Alyssa Clift, skaters from Princes’ Roller Rink, singer Selena Shoemaker, singers Suzie Thompson and Reilly Garcia, singer Brendon Boudreaux, dancers Memorial High School Dazzlers.

President of the Pilot Club is Laura Dean, and President Elect is Jeannet Walker.
