Atlantic Coast Chapter 133 Food Bank Project

Mission Lexington Food Bank

L to R Pioneers Don and Anne Mellen with Mission Lexington, SC director of the Mission Lexington food bank, Lauren Palkowski

Pioneers Anne and her husband Don (both retirees of Bell Labs) are working independently in Lexington making a donation to the Mission Lexington Food Bank. There is no pioneer council or club located close to Lexington, SC, so they are working through the Atlantic Coast Chapter 133. Anne and Don both retired from the Bell Labs in NJ and they have retired to their home in Lexington, SC.

Mission Lexington Food Bank
Mission Lexington has been meeting the needs of Lexington County, SC residents in crisis. Originally founded in 1978, Mission Lexington today is the hub of care for Lexington County, assisting families and individuals with life essentials, resources, and guidance.

New Outlook Pioneers Region Contacts For Each Chapter


Many of the Region Officer pictured above attended the Pioneer Association Conference held in March 2019

During the executive board conference call on Thursday, May 7, 2020 a action item came up. It was decided it would be nice to have a list of chapter officers posted to the website to make it easy for others to find chapter contacts. A spreadsheet with a list of officers is now posted to the web. You may access the file by clicking on this link.

Another action item was discussed to make all the PAC forms available on the www.newoutlookpioneers.net .  I have double checked and to be able to find and open all the forms you need to be signed in with the association website with a login and password to be able to open the link on the association website Pioneer Accounting Center (PAC).

If you need to be signed on the association website to open the link to (PAC) to get to the forms from them.  I don’t think we should put up a page with links to open the forms as you have to log in on the association web to open the link to the forms.  The general public shouldn’t be able to open and or copy the forms.  You need the authorization to be able access the forms at http://www.pioneersvolunteer.org/  and that should be the same anywhere else. 

If you need the Pioneer Accounting Center (PAC) forms you begin with http://www.pioneersvolunteer.org/ then in the menu select Members, on the drop down menu click on the Pioneer Accounting Center (PAC) and login and enter your password and select the forms you need and download.  All officers should have a Pioneer Association login and password if you don’t you need to contact the Pioneers and get them.
