TO SEE 89 YEAR OLD PALM BAY RESIDENT AND WWII VETERAN WHO WILL BE AN HONOREE AT THE MARCH 30, 2013 GALA


IMPORTANT, IMPORTANT, IMPORTANT!!!!


Please watch this VERY informative video of Dr. Michael Gannon - "The Dean of Florida Historians" - Report on Don Juan Ponce de Leon and the Accuracy of "The First Landing" being in Melbourne Beach, Florida. This speech was recorded at the October 1, 2012 Viva Florida 500 Partnership Conference in Jacksonville, FL.

This video, and the statements made by Dr. Gannon, who mentioned the support of Dr. Eugene Lyons, Florida's leading Maritime Historian, validate the commitment and historical findings of Lt. Col. Douglas T. Peck who, in 1990, used the log of Juan Ponce de Leon to retrace the 1513 voyage of the Discovery of Florida. Mr. Peck's voyage corrects history and proves that Juan Ponce de Leon landed in Melbourne Beach, Florida.

Through our partnership with Mr. Peck, and by the preserverence of members and volunteers of UTB, United Third Bridge, Inc., Royal Order of Juan Ponce de Leon, and the Florida Puerto Rican/Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, after 12 years of our efforts being ignored and, at times, having stones placed in our path, we can finally show the world that Melbourne Beach is rightfully "The First Landing".

It is our fervent hope that recognition of the historical significance of Brevard County and Melbourne Beach as the site of "The First Landing" will now be given, and that the support of the local government, media and the community will follow accordingly.

See how, in 15 minutes, he authoritatively answers:

Was Don Juan Ponce de Leon the first European to "discover" Florida?
Was Don Juan Ponce de Leon looking for a "Fountain of Youth"?
Did Don Juan Ponce de Leon give Florida its name?
Where did Don Juan Ponce de Leon land on our peninsula in 1513?
