The room is adjacent to the pharmacy and is designed to host community organizations such as diabetes and mastectomy support groups and other civic clubs. The grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony was facilitated by the Cocoa Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and was attended by many friends, family and patrons. 

Through the years, Hobbs Pharmacy has been an incredible partner with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, providing valuable information concerning substance abuse, assisting in the disposal of unwanted or unneeded medications, and partnering with us to help bring awareness to the community about Crime Prevention and Safety Awareness. 

Please join us in congratulating Hobbs Pharmacy, their incredible staff, and the entire Hobbs family for this outstanding accomplishment and also for their continued partnership to help keep Brevard County such a wonderful place.”
