November is a busy time here at the Brevard Center beginning with Parent Weekend and ending with Thanksgiving break. In between, students found themselves with much to do such as they participated in community service projects, mentoring opportunities and weekend activities.
Students volunteered their time and effort at diverse sites. Dane S., Dave F. and Zach S. worked at Harmony Farms, a volunteer based organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for disabled individuals through interaction with horses. Peter S., Zach S., Charlie N., Dane S., Dave F., Thomas S. and Andrew M. spent a Saturday morning at the Rossetter House, on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, helping to prepare their garden for the holidays. Charlie N. and Dodge M. also had the opportunity to spend time at BRPH as part of Disability Mentoring Day. BRPH is an international architecture and engineering design and construction services firm.

To celebrate Thanksgiving, we once again held a potluck lunch. While we didn’t eat turkey, we enjoyed spending time with our Brevard Center family and, as always, were amazed at the culinary skills that the students displayed. Weekend activities were also diverse. Students spent time at the Space Coast Fair and attended a play at Melbourne Civic Theater.

Student Senate’s donation drive for Toys for Tots continues and our holiday party is coming up in December. There’s never a dull moment at the Brevard Center. Thanks to our students and staff for making this all happen.
