III. Report from Chairperson Marx
Chairperson Marx advised the Committee about an article that was in the Florida Today Newspaper on July 14, 2008. The article was submitted to Doug Lang.
Dear Help!: The Indialantic Heritage Committee is in the process of digitizing the town’s precious archives. We are currently focusing on a pair of buildings at the center of the early community’s social life- the Tradewinds Hotel (originally the Indialantic Hotel, a luxurious resort) and the Bahama Beach Club (formerly the Indialantic Casino).
We are asking people who have photographs, brochures, artifacts or other materials from the two buildings to please help by loaning or donating them.
Jenifer Marx;
Marx serves as chairwoman of the committee, and she asked area residents
with memorabilia to contribute to call Laverne Bruffey at 952-5046.
“Loan photographs and documents will be digitized for the archives, and other items will be put on display in town hall,” she said.
Indialantic last year observed the 55th anniversary of its incorporation.
Ms. Bruffey advised that she’s received two phone calls from two different people with responses to the newspaper article.
Ms. Andren requested for Ms. Bruffey to type up notes on the two people with their input of their history in the Town.
Linda Page would like to be on the committee.
Chairperson Marx will get together with Sgt. Baker and from there contact Officer DesChenes to see if Officer DesChenes is available to be involved with the Committee’s events in the upcoming future.
Jim Ayres advised that he will show us the items he has collected over the years, if he is able to see the items the committee has.

An event is in the works for September 2008 at the Melbourne Beach old Town Hall building. The event will have a display of Indialantic.
