Pilot Clubs Annual Benefit Breakfast Sunday at Snookys
Placeholder Image
    What does breakfast have to do with dictionaries? Go to Snooky’s Restaurant Sunday morning, Nov. 23,  and you’ll see.
    For just $6 a person, the all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet will not only satisfy your appetite, but will help provide dictionaries for local students and fund other local projects as well.
    This is the 28th year the Pilot Club of Statesboro has sponsored the Annual Benefit Breakfast at Snooky’s, said Faye Ruarks, club member and spokesperson.
    “We appreciate Bruce Yawn’s dedication in his years of allowing us to use Snooky’s for this benefit,” she said.
    From 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. citizens can pop in before or after church or after they roll out of bed from sleeping late. The funds will go to a number of “brain-related projects” including the following, Ruarks said: dictionaries to all third grade students in Bulloch County public and private schools; a “Brain-Minders puppet show that teaches all school children to “protect their brains for life”; and Project Lifesaver, a rapid-response partnership with the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Department to locate individuals who are prone to wander, such as Alzheimer's or dementia patients, or those suffering from down Syndrome or autism.
    The Pilot Club of Statesboro also sponsors the Silver Lining Club, which meets at First Presbyterian Church Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for people with Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia. A certified nursing assistant is provided to assist the club members while care givers are given a break from duties.
    The Pilot Club of Statesboro also sponsors support groups for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease or Alzheimer’s Disease,  as well as members of their families. The groups are co-sponsored by East Georgia Regional Medical Center, and that is where the meetings are held.
    “Since this is purely a volunteer effort, we depend upon the generous donations of community members,” said Pilot Club president Jeannette Turner.
    The buffet includes eggs, grits, cheese grits; ham, bacon and sausage;  fruit, English muffins, biscuits and milk, juice and coffee, Ruarks said.
