Independence Day at IRCC!

The Independence Day celebration at Indian River Colony Club began with a stirring service next to the flags outside the Club. It included a rousing choral presentation, uplifting remarks, prayers, and the always fun (and loud) cannon blast! Next, the Firecracker golf tournament kicked off at 9am with a full complement of teams. It's a great day to be an American!

Florida's Space Coast - Great American Defense Communities


Did you know that the Space Coast is one of just five recently named Great American Defense Communities for 2022? According to the April 6 press release from Washington, D.C. –

Florida’s Space Coast, home to Patrick Space Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, is one of five communities across the country named to the 2022 Class of Great American Defense Communities.

The Association of Defense Communities (ADC) announced the five selected communities in conjunction with USAA, the program’s official sponsor at the Defense Communities National Summit earlier this month. The 2022 class also includes West Valley Partners, Ariz., Tullahoma, Tenn., Antelope Valley, Calif., and Northern Virginia.

“Our military needs America’s defense communities to support them,” ADC President Bob Ross said. “We selected Florida’s Space Coast because they are a region that consistently goes above and beyond to support service members, veterans, and military families living in their community.”
