Oct. 8, 2-3:30 p.m.
WISE: Florida Lottery History: The Educational Enhancement Trust Fund – Where Does the Money Go?
Wisdom In Senior Education (W.I.S.E.) is a program offered by the Daytona State College Foundation to promote and share the academic college resources with our senior community, providing learning opportunities in an enjoyable format. In 1986, Florida voters authorized a lottery through a constitutional amendment, enacted by a two-to-one margin that would use its proceeds to enhance public education in Florida. Governor Bob Martinez and the Florida Legislature established the Florida Lottery with the mission of maximizing revenues for education to allow the people of Florida to benefit from significant additional monies while providing the best lottery games available. Over the 25-year history of the Florida Lottery, both goals have been accomplished. Speaker: Don Creley. Free to WISE members.

Come see and hear how state-of-the-art research and simulations here at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University are helping train the pilots of the future to safely and smoothly get us to where we need to go..

How much can such natural threats be anticipated? What are your chances of making it through a hurricane if you stay in your home or should you expect to have to evacuate? How can you best be prepared in terms of your home, emergency information, and essential things to have ready? Richard Moore of the Volusia Department of Public Protection will discuss how to get ready, and what to do (and not do) before, during and after such emergencies. Speaker: Richard Moore.
