FUNDRAISING

HISTORIC BREVARD CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS

HISTORIC MELBOURNE/BREVARD ORNAMENTS are offered exclusively by the Zonta Club of Melbourne.

Ornaments can be bought at Meehan’s Office and Art Products in Downtown Melbourne or ordered online with the Ornament Order Form on our site.

Since 1999 Zonta has picked an Iconic Historical Landmark here in Brevard County and made it into an ornament for purchase. You can purchase one ornament or the entire collection. This is a great gift for that hard to shop for person on your Christmas list who already has everything.

All proceeds of ornament sales benefit local scholarship programs, community service projects and the local and international fight against Human Trafficking and Violence Against Women.
