On August 11, 2016, a party was held at the Stuart Jet Center, Witham Field, Stuart Airport as the charter was presented by SE Section Governor, Myra Bugbee, to Ruth Jacobs, Chairman of the new Treasure Coast Ninety-Nines.
This day of celebration included eight of the original charter members, fellow members from the Southeast section, Ginger Adelstone, chair of Florida Heartland Ninety-Nines, Jen Toplak, chair of the Florida Goldcoast Ninety-Nines, as well as friends and family of the charter members.
The 13 original charter members were bestowed with gifts from fellow Ninety-Nine, Anita Mixon, and from other Friends of the Ninety-Nines. The Treasure Coast Chapter's mascot was established as the Pirate. Anita Mixon, then membership chair, even dressed as a pirate for the party.
Since this momentous day the Treasure Coast Chapter has been scheduling meetings, training, and events for our pilots!
