Our speaker this week will be Charlie Pope, Youth Sailing Foundation. Youth Sailing Foundation of Indian River County, Inc. is an ALL VOLUNTEER, 501(c)(3) organization funded solely by donations.
The activities are open to Indian River County children ages 8 and older who can pass a swimming test.
Why sailing? The program takes children outdoors, away from computers and cell phones while providing the physical activity so lacking today. Sailing often provides a way for children with limited athletic skills to compete equally with children who are more athletically inclined.
David has also secured the date of Friday, October 24, for us to help with the Sneaker Exchange/Happy Feet program. Mark your calendar now to help the children of Fellsmere Elementary School pick out their favorite pair of shoes at 9:00am. Maybe we can give them each an American flag to take back with them in their show boxes.
