Pioneers Press - Winter Edition 2012

Dear Fellow Pioneer,

Thanks to the enthusiasm and commitment of members like you, Pioneers commemorated our landmark Centennial Anniversary by making a positive, tangible impact in the communities where we live and work.

Throughout 2011, we celebrated our Centennial in countless ways.

  • We held our first-ever Pioneers International Project to help ensure that families across the United States and Canada have access to nutritious food.
  • We had 19 chapters participate in our Community Grants Program, which provided over $675,000 in grant funds to communities across North America.
  • We held our Annual Meeting and Centennial Celebration in Boston, Massachusetts where over 1,100 Pioneers, family and friends joined together in the spirit of Pioneering.
  • Pioneers donated more than 22 million hours of time to community outreach activities worth more than $469 million.

You and your fellow Pioneers accomplished great things in 2011 because of your commitment to making life better for the people of your community.

As you read through our winter newsletter, I want to say thank you to each and every one of you for the part you played in our Centennial year. I look forward to a great 2012!

Yours in Pioneering,

Jim Schmit
Chairman, Pioneers
