Fort Pierce Rotary honors business leaders

Fort Pierce Rotary honors business leaders

The Fort Pierce Rotary Club recently organized a Business Leaders Luncheon at the Pelican Yacht Club on Seaway Drive. The event was attended by 85 local business leaders and 40 Rotarians. The event's purpose was to recognize the contributions of the business leaders in making Fort Pierce/St. Lucie County what it is today and to encourage them to continue giving back to the community.

The guests at the event included a diverse range of professionals such as entrepreneurs, retirees, government officials, law enforcement officers, attorneys, real estate agents, ranchers, mortgage brokers, education professionals, the Fort Pierce Mayor and more. The gathering provided an excellent opportunity for networking and exchanging ideas with like-minded individuals from various sectors of the community.

The event was organized by a team of seven led by the Past President of the club, Rick Haisley. The team worked hard to ensure that the event was a success, and it was well received by all attendees.

The luncheon provided a platform for business leaders to come together, share their experiences, and inspire one another to give back to the community.

During the meeting, President Ryan Abernethy presented Fort Pierce Chief of Police Diane Hobley Burney with a check for $3,000 for their new program called “Have a Heart”. For years, local Police officers have contributed daily to the growing financial concerns of local citizens, and Have a Heart will provide the officers with much needed gift cards that can be provided to those in our community in need of just a little something to get them by. This was an example of Rotary in Action, as the club donated half the funds while 5 generous members contributed the remaining half.

Overall, the Business Leaders Luncheon organized by the Fort Pierce Rotary Club was a great success. It highlighted the importance of collaboration and networking among business leaders in the community. It was an excellent opportunity for business leaders to connect with other like-minded individuals and gain insights into how they can continue to make a positive impact in their community.

Atlantic Classical Orchestra performs famous Beethoven’s 5th

Atlantic Classical Orchestra performs famous Beethoven’s 5th

The Atlantic Classical Orchestra will be performing Beethoven’s famous 5th Symphony during their April Concert Series. There are few pieces of classical music as iconic and well-known. Even people who are not classical music fans have likely heard the opening notes of this work. The 5th Symphony is an excellent example of Beethoven's skill as a composer and is a must-hear for any music lover.

Though the Symphony is over two hundred years old, it remains one of the most popular and well-known classical pieces of music. The famous opening notes are instantly recognizable, and the symphony as a whole is an absolute masterpiece.The 5th Symphony will be performed by the Atlantic Classical Orchestra at the First Presbyterian Church of North Palm Beach on April 12th, Community Church of Vero Beach on April 13th, and the Lyric in Downtown Stuart on April 14th, 2023. This will be a rare opportunity to hear one of the world's most popular pieces of music performed live by one of the Treasure Coast’s most prestigious orchestras.

Additionally, during this concert, the ACO will highlight a beautiful composition by Richard Wagner, Siegfried Idyll. This composition was named after his newborn son and was originally intended to remain a private birthday gift to his wife, it was later published and truly highlights Wagner’s mastery of inspired melody. Additionally highlighted is a modern composition by João Luiz Rezende, a Concerto for Harp performed by our wonderful guest artist, Bridget Kibbey.

Be on hand to welcome veterans home

Be on hand to welcome veterans home

On Saturday, April 15th, Palm Beach International Airport will be the place to be as Southeast Florida Honor Flight returns from its first Honor Flight mission of the 2022 season. At 7:20 p.m., veterans will be returning from a full day of being honored and celebrated in Washington, D.C., courtesy of Southeast Florida Honor Flight. This first flight of 2023 includes two veterans who served in World War II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and you can help welcome them home.

As in the past, a crowd of individuals will gather at Palm Beach International Airport to welcome the veterans home from their epic journey and to honor them for their brave and selfless service to our country. Operation Homecoming, which features music, flags, loads of laughter, and a chance to share the memory of a lifetime with American heroes, is free and open to the public.

Every veteran on the flight has stories to share and memories – some they haven’t thought of in decades, and some they have never shared with anyone. During an Honor Flight mission, veterans on the trip are flown at no cost to Washington, DC, where they are served throughout the day by volunteer guardians who have been trained to ensure the safety and enjoyment of each hero veteran flying.

Even if you don’t know anyone on the flight, you will find friends and neighbors in the crowd, and you’ll have a chance to cheer the veterans through the final steps of the day most say they remember as second only to their weddings and births of their children. Well-wishers are encouraged to bring signs, flags, and smiles to share with the veterans and guardians as they return, and you are guaranteed to walk away from the event with a lump in your throat, a smile on your face, and gratitude and pride in your heart for these humble heroes you’ve helped welcome home. Remember, some of these veterans never had the welcome home they so deserve.

If you, your neighbors, your church or social group, or family and friends are interested in being part of something special, please mark your calendars now for Saturday, April 15th, at 7:20 p.m. at Palm Beach International Airport. Volunteers from the ground crew will direct you on where to go, but be ready for a heartwarming homecoming for some very special veterans and volunteers. To learn more about Southeast Florida Honor Flight and how you can become involved or to donate to the next flight, please visit www.honorflightsefl.org today.
