We recently became aware of an amazing non-profit that meets incredible need in Melbourne and Palm Bay communities. South Brevard Sharing Center (SBSC) is about treating people with dignity and respect by providing a haven for those who struggle to meet their basic needs. The Sharing Center was founded in 1971 as a non-profit, community based agency for charitable and philanthropic purposes. The general nature and purpose of this organization is to provide short-term emergency assistance to needy individuals and families, in the Brevard County Area where Federal, State, and County funds are not available.

Come visit the Strawbridge Art League at the Henegar in downtown Melbourne. Currently the artists have put together a “Haunted Hallway,” featuring artwork from the Mexican Holiday, “Dia de Los Muertos“. Volunteers will be decorating on the 11th of October. The image below is a painting by Katherine McElhinny, Strawbridge Art League’s 2012 President, entitled Ghoul with the Pearl Earring.
The Day of the Dead is not a spooky holiday, though it does come around Halloween every year. It is a time for families to remember those who have passed on. They visit grave sites of relatives with gifts and food and tell stories of generations that have past. Students and adults participated in this art show.

I can’t tell you how many times or in how many places I’ve heard it. People say we just don’t have anything cultural to do in Brevard. And yet, there are many venues here for theatre, visual arts, performance and music, among others.
When you picture Miami, for instance, you think of an amazing arts scene. You imagine diverse cultures of Cuban and South American influence, painting an eclectic, vibrant picture. Miami Beach sports an art deco district with so many things to do. Miami’s place as the crossroads between the Caribbean, South America, Central America and the United States surely has a lot to do with its cultural depth–but the issue is more than just location.

Join us for the Space Coast’s premier race, the Turtle Krawl! In 2011, nearly 1000 people signed up for the race, and the Sea Turtle Preservation Society (STPS) was able to raise over $20,000. Their Board unanimously agreed to earmark all Turtle Krawl funds for a “special project” to be determined, with the number one goal being building a sea turtle rehabilitation facility, or at the very least setting up a triage-type location, here in Brevard County. At this time, the closest rehab facility is a 90 minute drive from Brevard County beaches. Come out and join the fun–and support the STPS.
