When the Indian River Colony Club appears at the Boomer Bash & Senior Expo Nov. 6 for the Veterans Salute, they will have already saluted veterans among the Greatest Generation.

The Viera golf course community designed for U.S. military officers, but now open to nonmilitary families, donated funds to send three World War II veterans on their Honor Flight. The nonprofit sends WWII and now Korean War veterans to visit their battle memorials in Washington, D.C. IRCC awarded the $1,200 at the Aug. 14 “Keep the Spirit of ‘45 Alive” event to celebrate the victorious end of World War II. Like the Boomer Bash, it was a Senior Life event.

“It was such a pleasure knowing that the resources committed by IRCC are honoring World War II veterans in such a unique, effective way,” IRCC COO and general manager John K. Robinson said.

“Honor Flight makes sure our veterans feel the love and appreciation from our citizens and it is an experience they never forget and are always so happy to talk about.”

Robinson now has even more to feel good about.

New homes will be built on remaining vacant lots beginning in 2016. The upscale custom residences will be built by Executive Homes.

IRCC is built around a Gordon Lewis-designed golf course and has two restaurants and meeting and banquet areas. It features a manned security gate off Murrell Road, a residents-only exit/entrance on Viera Boulevard and an administration building with additional small meeting rooms.
