Cocoa High Chorus in a New York
State of Mind

The opportunity of a lifetime some might say…the chance to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City. This was a dream come true for the students of Cocoa High’s Chorus, when they learned they had been invited to to represent the state of Florida at the 2019 "Fall Sing: Remembering 9/11." 

Raising money to cover the $85,000 travel cost seemed a bit daunting, but with an opportunity of this magnitude, CHS music director Dr. Misty Martinez and Principal Rachad Wilson were determined to help these students make it to the Big Apple and show the world the level of talent and dedication. 

As word spread, so did the community’s interest and support. It took months of hard work, performances and practice, but the Cocoa High Chorus reached their fundraising goal! They departed for New York City on Saturday, October 12.

Hospice of St. Francis Invites Community to Tree Lighting Events Honoring
Loved Ones on November 14
Hospice of St. Francis extends a community-wide invitation to the second annual Lights of Love, three seasonal ceremonies designed to honor loved ones in a unique, uplifting and beautiful way. The ceremonies will be held concurrently at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 14 in Titusville on the Hospice of St. Francis Campus at 1250-B Grumman Place; in Rockledge at 1700 Jack Oates Blvd. on the grounds of the Resource Center; and in West Melbourne at the West Melbourne Community Center at 3000 Minton Rd.

Anyone who wishes to honor their loved ones can participate and attend one of the ceremonies as majestic oak trees adorned with hundreds of twinkling lights are illuminated for the first time. A small donation in honor or memory of a loved one will bring tribute to their life through a light on the tree. Those wishing to participate can visit the Lights of Love website: .
