"Along with year-round warm weather and ample public beaches, the Melbourne metro area also is home to Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center," the report said.
"If you're interested in playing a bigger role than just watching rockets launch into space, plenty of aerospace employers accompany other large companies in the health care and manufacturing fields."

Spotlight on IRCC Residents, Ken & Barb Keskinen
 By Carolyn Cain

If you’re new to IRCC, want to become involved in the community, and don’t quite know where to start, call Ken and Barb Keskinen.

This couple have more than a dozen activities going between the two of them. They wouldn’t put it this way, but they are two people with a lot of talent.

Originally from Ohio and high-school sweethearts, the Keskinens, like many military couples, tried out a few places to live after ...

Congratulations to IRCC's Employees of the Quarter!

Those employees who have gone 'above and beyond' are awarded quarterly. In the photo (l to r), Kristie, Design Center, Ed, Maintenance, Connie, Housekeeping and John, Golf Course. Not pictured is Kelly, At Ease Club. Thanks to all for their hard work and dedication!
Spotlight on Vietnam Veteran, Jim Rufino
Years before Jim Rufino became one of the approximately 450 Vietnam veterans who live at IRCC, he recognized there was a need for those veterans to be recognized and to have the opportunity to communicate with each other.
Jim, a Navy veteran who was one of the more than nine million military personnel who served on active duty from August, 1964 to May 1975 during the Vietnam Era, began his involvement when he and wife Kathleen lived in South Florida.
He found himself stepping up while a member of the Vietnam Veterans of America in Boca Raton some 20 years ago. The Rufinos moved to Brevard County in 2001. Since then, he served as President of the Brevard Chapter for four years and as state coalition representative to the Florida State Council for more than 6 years. He also has served on US Congressman Bill Posey’s veterans’ council.

Ibsen's most beguiling anti-heroine is given a new twist in Jon Robin Baitz's acclaimed adaptation of HEDDA GABLER: She's no longer the chilly, inscrutable manipulator but a woman with, as the New York Times put it, "a context and a persuasive raison d'être. Ibsen's classic play here emerges with renewed vitality and newfound dramatic resonance.”
