Book of Golden Deeds: Todd Howder was presented with the Book of Golden Deeds. Todd was instrumental in bringing the Air Show back to our community and making sure the money raised was given to local charities which include the veterans and the prevention of child abuse. This was an event held by the Vero Beach and Ft. Pierce Exchange Clubs.

It was not done for many years and Todd had a dream to bring it back and also to have the Blue Angels perform.Golden Deeds 6-15-16 It worked and the whole community is a better place for his great effort. We congratulate Todd for making a dream come true and having it touch so many lives in our community.

About the Book of Golden Deeds: Volunteer efforts are very important to our society and should not go unnoticed. The National Exchange Club’s longest running project, the Book of Golden Deeds Award, recognizes dedicated volunteers who give endless hours of their time and talents toward making their communities better places to live. Ever since the Exchange Club of Huntington, Ind., sponsored the first award in 1919, thousands of unsung heroes and heroines have been recognized. (

National Exchange Club has partnered with ‘Veterans Matters’

War Bond Order Form Full (1)As you may know, the National Exchange Club has partnered with Veterans Matters to house all homeless veterans.

Veterans Matters is a group of regular Americans who take care of their own veterans who need financial help to become permanently housed. Many “eligible” veterans receive assistance from the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) and then the Veterans Association (VA) social workers help them get back on their feet. But as we all know this is not enough.

Thank you!
