Pilot Club of Manhattan

The Pilot Club of Manhattan has adopted the service focus of helping parents and caregivers of those affected by autism. We work closely with the autism coordinator in the Manhattan School District to plan and implement an autism workshop each year. As the knowledge about autism and the treatments and learning methods evolve, we continually bring in a wide variety of presenters who educate and inspire parents and family as well as educators and other professionals.

In addition, we are involved in a number of community activities, from assisting the Emergency Shelter and Crisis Center to providing cookies for Red Cross Blood Drives. To learn more about our club’s activities, click here.

The Pilot Club of Manhattan is one of three Pilot Clubs in the Manhattan, Kansas, community. In fact, Pilot Club of Manhattan was the first in Manhattan, chartered in 1963. We have chartered the other two clubs, as well as the Clay Center Club. All are part of Pilot International.

The Pilot Club of Manhattan meets at noon on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at the Kansas Farm Bureau building. For more information about Pilot Club of Manhattan, contact us at info@pilotclubofmanhattan.org.
