Representatives from the Indian River Colony Club Foundation and the Veteran’s Administration Clinic in Viera gathered for a short outdoor ceremony, as a four-seat refurbished golf cart valued at $3,000 was donated to the clinic. Chief Medical Officer, Thomas Howard, M.D. accepted the cart on behalf of the clinic, thanking Indian River Colony Club General Manager John Robinson and IRCC Foundation Chairman, Major General Huck Long, U.S. Army (Ret). The golf cart will be used to help transport patients to the VA Clinic from the far reaches of the facility parking lot.
Indian River Colony Club is a 55+ Viera community begun as a premier retirement destination for military officers. “The Place Patriots Call Home” is a fully maintained and gated neighborhood of nearly 800 homes on 453 acres. Major General Huck Long, U.S. Army (Ret.) was clear about the intentions of the IRCC Foundation. “I can think of no better use for a golf cart than in helping our disabled veterans into the VA Clinic to receive the care they have earned,” said Major General Long. “It’s service to those who served.” According to the Veteran’s Administration Clinic Chief Medical Officer, the cart donation will help those who need it most.
“With the growth of our local population, we are seeing increasingly complex cases,” said Dr. Howard. “Many of these patients need help navigating our large parking lot and will benefit from this generous donation by the IRCC Foundation.”
