Please step up to help this club and volunteer. There are a variety of ways we need assistance, from chairpersons to “worker bees”. Volunteers keep our club going! Please contact Ellen at (303)434-1753 for details.



We would like to introduce you to Becky Aud who was hired by the Satellite Beach Recreation Dept. as their first ever Coordinator for Senior Programs. Becky has a degree in Recreation and worked previously in Virginia as a Recreation Programmer working with children through senior adults. In total, she has over 25 years’ experience in Recreation.

Becky’s main job is to be the go-to person for Senior programs for our community utilizing what is already in place and eventually introducing additional opportunities for our seniors. Feel free to offer any suggestions you may have.

She will be the liaison for the Recreation Dept. with the 55+ Club and will assist the club with their administrative work. You will most likely see her at many of the 55+ Club programs pitching in. Feel free to contact Becky if you have any suggestions or ideas regarding senior programs. She can be reached at 321/773-6458 X206 or [email protected] Becky lives in Brevard County with her husband Paul and their sweet little Staffordshire Terrier Peiper.
