Ocean Breeze Art Educator Wins $1,000 Grant from Lifestyle Homes
By Nicki Hensley

John Alison, art educator at Ocean Breeze Elementary, was nominated by several people from the Indian Harbour Beach community for a $1,000 grant from LifeStyle Homes to support his art program.

LifeStyle’s Education Renovation program provides funds to teachers to help with a particular item or project that is not currently within budget. The grant can be used to help pay for classroom supplies or any special projects that may be out of financial reach.

The nomination read: " Mr. Alison is an all-around fabulous guy. He’s an educator who truly cares about the students, and you can feel it when you speak to him. He also directs the car loop every morning (rain or shine) with the brightest smile, making the kids feel warm and welcome. Art supplies can be very pricey and I’m sure his classroom could benefit greatly from this."

Hospice of St. Francis Physician Shares Memories of Space Coast Honor Flight
Dr. Jeffrey Saluck, a Hospice of St. Francis medical staff member recently volunteered his time to serve as the Medical Team Physician for the Space Coast Honor Flight trip that departed on May 18, 2019. Dr. Saluck was one of five staff members who accompanied 25 veterans and 25 guardians on the trip. 

Space Coast Honor Flight's (SCHF) mission is to take World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam Veterans to visit their War Memorials in Washington D.C.  

Dr. Saluck shared some of the most meaningful and touching aspects of the trip saying, “The Space Coast Honor Flight experience is a wonderful way to say thank you to veterans. It is very patriotic and also extremely moving. Our group arrived at the Orlando airport around 4 a.m. to depart for our flight. There was a large group of well-wishers there and when we arrived at the Baltimore airport waiting to welcome us with lots of fanfare and shouts of appreciation for the veterans. We were given a police escort as our bus proceeded on a pre-arranged route that allowed the veterans to get to have very up-close and personal tours of the memorial sites. The Space Coast Honor Flight group does an amazing job of organizing all the details.

One of the most touching moments for me occurred at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where the Tomb Guards patrolling the memorial with much precision and in silence gave each of our veterans, lined up in front of the monument a “silent salute” by adding an extra “drag” of their heel as they passed each one. That solemn but very special show of respect for our veterans was extremely moving and meaningful. I feel very fortunate to have had this experience and plan to volunteer again.”
