Fly Away Home

With a new year in the not so distant future, the search for inspired intentions and motivating mantras begins. We're shouting "Cher Ami!" in honor of one humble homing pigeon, whose bravery in the face of danger affected the course of a war.

A Remodeled Retreat

Everyone has their own "How I Came to Vero Beach" story. For the Gillmores, it includes two generations, several countries and a partnership with local firms who understood the family's vision and transformed a John's Island home into a light-filled waterfront retreat.

Living Legacies

Past and present meet as local youth sit down with members of Indian River County’s African American community and record their memories as part of the Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation’s Teens Listen program. The exercise not only documents oral history, it provides young people opportunities to engage with their elders while learning about life in days gone by.
