Leading the tourism charge is Eric Garvey, who has been the Executive Director of Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism since November 2014.

Garvey is responsible for the administration of all the action within the Tourism Development Office of Brevard County including marketing and promoting the Space Coast to tourists around the world; managing the tourist visitor centers; overseeing beach re-nourishment initiatives; marketing and promoting cultural and sporting events; and assisting the Brevard Zoo, the film commission and applying for grants.

Brevard County’s 5 percent tourism tax revenue, which is collected on local hotel rooms and other short-term rentals, exceeded $10 million for the first time in the budget year that ended Sept. 30 of last year.

Garvey expects the figure to top $15 million in the budget year that runs from Oct. 1, 2017, to Sept. 30, 2018.

The Rotary Club of Indialantic devotes significant amounts of
Members time, energy and donations to raise money for local
Charities and volunteer time to work at charitable organizations
in support of their causes and the community in general
 
The Club runs various fund raising activities during the year to
raise money to support these endeavors.  This year the primary
fundraiser is the "Witchway 5K" run/walk done in conjunction
with the Town of Indialantic. Click on poster on home page.  The
Indialantic Rotary portion of the proceeds will go to "Space Coast
Volunteers in Medicine" and the "No Limits Academy"(for dis-
abled children). 
 
A listing of some of these charitable activities is shown below:
1. The Witch Way 5K Run/Walk that we do in conjunction with
    The Town of Indialantic as a major fund raiser each year was
    again a significant success.  The Indialantic Rotary proceeds
    from the Event were $10,600 which will be donated equally to
    Volunteers In Medicine $5300 and No Limits Academy $5300.
 
2. Two $2000 Scholarships matched by FIT for local exceptional
    high school seniors in Brevard enrolled in FIT.  The Club
    Foundation has given $210,275 with FIT matching funds of
    $88,125 to Brevard Students over the years.
3. A $1000 scholarship matched by FIT for a Brevard Rotaract
    student to attend FIT.
4. Support for the Brevard Sharing Center with $500 for their
    Summer Hunger Program and $300 for 3 bicycles for their
    Christmas Program.
5. Donation to the Patrick AFB 920th Rescue Wing's families
    and childrens picnic.
6. The two activities below are part of the Clubs Literacy
    Program chaired by Member Ruth Sanderson
 
    
   The club spends about $1000 on the Josh the Otter Books
   And applies to RI for a grant to help defray the cost.
  
   The club spends about $1000 on the Brain Game books
   And applies to RI for a grant to help defray the cost.
 
   The Brain Game book is meant as a “how-to” guide for parents. 
   It was developed by pediatricians, neonatologists, and childhood
   development specialists.  The aim is to translate complicated
   scientific research into easy to understand language.  We want
   to explain what is going on in each of the important stages of
   birth-to-three development.  We want to educate parents on things
   they can do to keep their child safe and healthy in general.  We
   want to teach caregivers the things they can do to simulate
   development processes in the brain.  These are not just general
   tips.  They are timed to coordinate with the brain development
   processes going on during each critical period.

        D.O.C.K. 
  
  The Dorcas Outreach Center for Kids (DOCK) is a drop-in
  community centerin the Booker T. Washington neighborhood of
  Melbourne, Florida that serves children aged 5-18 after school and
  during the summer. Up to 50 children a day find a structured,
  nurturing environment where they can get a healthy snack, receive
  help with their homework, play outside in a big shaded yard, learn
  music, do arts and crafts, and socialize with their friends. Positive
  choices affecting health, behavior, and attitudes are modeled by
  caring staff and volunteers
 
  The goal at The DOCK  is to enable children to compete more
  effectively with their peers today and provide them with critical
  skills and knowledge they need for future success. The DOCK
  also serves as a gathering place for the neighborhood. The
  Golden Agers – a group of seniors – meets twice weekly for a
  game of bingo, socializing, and a hot lunch. Neighborhood
  residents make use of the computer lab, and there are
  community events throughout the year.

   That is a brief summary of our current activities and we will
   report on others as they are pursued.  We thank our members
   and the community for supporting our programs.
 
 

 
Don't Quit
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Practicing peace
Nations around the world will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, a date designated by the United Nations in 2001 as "a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence."

Today, nearly 1,000 peace centers alumni are applying their skills — negotiating peace in conflict...

Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
