As a former volunteer for the Homeless Family Center (HFC) in Vero Beach, Attorney Blake Smith understands the importance of keeping children busy. To that end, The Young Lawyer’s Division of the Indian River County Bar, under the direction of President Nick Bruce, focused their Spring community outing on the HFC. On Saturday, March 15, several other young lawyers of Indian River County, along with Smith and fellow Associates of the Rossway Swan Tierney Barry Law Firm, Kevin Rollin and Brooke Benzio, escorted nearly twenty children to the Vero Bowl for a day of bowling, arcade entertainment, and lunch. Ivy Meighan, Children’s Program Manager for HFC chaperoned.

When the partners of Rossway Moore Swan decided to continue their outreach into the community, one of the projects they selected was to be part of the Florida’s Adopt-A-Highway Program. As volunteers of this program, Rossway Moore Swan entered into an agreement which commenced in 1999 with the Department of Transportation (DOT) to “adopt” a two mile section of a state highway. The law firm “adopted” the section of State Road 60 from Indian River Boulevard to State Road A-1-A along Beachland Boulevard, and under the DOT safety regulations, they don orange vests and remove litter from this location on a quarterly basis. Many miles of highways are adopted statewide by various organizations, allowing civic-minded people to make a difference in their communities. This eases the load of DOT work crews, enabling them to devote more time to other road maintenance and special highway projects. Adopt-a-Highway signs commending Rossway Moore Swan are posted at the beginning and end of the bridge.Share
