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.

Grant survey shows solid support for new model
More than 6,000 Rotary members in 154 countries reported on their experiences with the new grant model as part of an evaluation during the 2015-16 Rotary year. The results will help us improve the grant process and learn what impact the Foundation's global grants have on our areas of focus. Among the key findings: 90 percent of respondents support the grant model; 86 percent see it as an improvement over the former model.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
