Since the majority of the Cocoa Beach High School Class of 1965 attended Cocoa High School for their sophomore and junior years, they are included in this website. For those individuals who are not members of the class Facebook group it also serves as a communication link for upcoming class functions. If this is your first visit to this site or if it has been a while since your last visit then please update your contact information.Often imitated but never duplicated, the Class of 65 was truly best alive!
43Films has contacted us for assistance is preparing a documentary for Discovery's American Heroes Channel. "It will focus on the wonderment, hope, imagination and ingenuity of the early space program from the early rocketry days through the Apollo missions. We were in Florida recently interviewing engineers from the early rocketry days ABMA and NASA. Our director is looking for home video and photos of the early days of the Space Coast. We have footage from NASA etc but the director wants to tie in images from those who lived and grew up with the Space Program. We are looking for people who grew up on the Space Coast - watching the missile launches with friends or family, possibly pictures from school when released to watch the missle launches and other activities including photos of the town in the late 50's through the late 60's - family/friends as the Space Coast grew and the area changed -- Titusville to Melbourne".
This will be a seven hour production aired on the Discovery American Hero Channel. If you have any home movies, photos or stories to tell about the early days of the space program please send them to the below address. They seem to be keenly interested in the fire drills that were held at all the local schools to allow the students a chance to witness the missile shot.
Class member assistance is greatly appreciated.
The line producer and story researcher for this production is Shelley Steagall - email address: email@example.com
The production company is 43films - website: 43films.com (additional contact information is provided here)

Bill McKnight and Tom Zimmerman at a local tea party hosted by Rebecca Corbit to honor Johnny Waits. If you don't believe that then maybe you wou would believe this - Tom and Bill are helping Johnny remodel a condo he recently bought in Rockledge. Rebecca had to host the party under a tree out back so that the boys would not be visible to the general public.
