    Connie Harvey - Red Cross Director of
  Centennial Initiatives -- Water Safety
 
   As the director of Centennial Initiatives, Harvey has spent her
20-year career at the American Red Cross as an ambassador
for the organization’s mission to decrease the number of
drowning deaths each year.
  The Centennial Campaign is an initiative to help reduce
drowning in communities where drowning rates are higher
than the national average. Working with local Red Cross
training partners,the Centennial Campaign provides swim
lessons and water-safety knowledge and skills to those who
might not otherwise be able to afford this lifesaving training.
   The campaign is under way across Florida, including with
the parks and recreation departments in Brevard County and
the cities of Orlando, Haines City and Tampa, and the
Sarasota YMCA.  During fiscal year 2015, Harvey 
exceeded student enrollment within her program by more than 
60 percent, increasing participation in community programs
serving those most at risk, the Red Cross reported, while also
reducing budgetary cost.
   “Connie represents the subject and our organization with grace
and knowledge,” said Regional CEO Linda Jorge Carbone in a
release. “She has garnered positive publicity in top-tier media
such as Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the ‘Today
Show,’ USA Today, and many others — all contributing to our
priority to revitalize the brand.”
   Harvey has been the featured speaker at many drowning
conferences and other public events, according to the release.
With her leadership, the Red Cross says it has reached 50,000
more participants over the life of the Centennial Campaign —
launched at the 100-year anniversary of the organization in 
2014 — helping more people of all ages to stay safe in the water.
 

 
 
 
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.

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise.
