The Military Officers Association of America Cape Canaveral Chapter (MOAACC) is an affiliate of the national Military Officers Association of America (MOAA). We are the second
largest chapter of MOAA with approximately 1450 members. Our
social/service organization has been active in Brevard County since
1958. It is dedicated to supporting the goals and national legislative
programs of MOAA and preserving programs beneficial to retired as well
as active duty, reserve and national guard of the seven uniformed
services, their dependents and survivors. Secondly through social
activities and meetings like the Thursday Morning Breakfast Club (TMBC),
the monthly luncheon and evening parties held five or six times yearly,
we promote the camaraderie so necessary for working together on our many
other projects in community service and philanthropic causes.

Program: It has been over 10 years since the last hurricane struck Brevard County. Do you know what to do when a hurricane strikes Brevard County? Do you know where to go? What about your pets? Do you know where to find information? Do you have a plan?
In 2004, Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne hammered the Space Coast., while Hurricane Charley devastated communities from southwest Florida through Daytona Beach. Hurricane Wilma followed in 2005 with winds of up to 185 miles an hour.
These four hurricanes resulted in the deaths of nearly 100 people and caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damages due to flooding and high winds. Being prepared and knowing what to do when a hurricane strikes is the key to limiting the amount of damage a hurricane does to you and your family, or your home.
To learn what you can do to prepare for a hurricane, please join us on August 16, 2016, when Kimberly Prosser, Director of Brevard County
Emergency Management, will speak about what you can do to prepare and steps that Brevard County has taken to prepare for such disasters.
Please make your plans to attend the 16 August Luncheon at the IRCC Colony Club. As usual it will begin at 1130 and end at approximately 1300. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
