Navarre may get its first beach wheelchair

Navarre Beach doesn’t have beach wheelchairs, but that could soon change.

The Santa Rosa County Tourist Devel­opment Council (TDC) Jan. 21 approved purchase of a $1,600 beach wheelchair.

The wheelchair will be used exclusively and stored by Heroes on the Water (HOW), a nonprofit organization aimed to help veterans by providing therapeutic kayak fishing excursions.

Frank Daily, HOW’s director of coordinat­ed therapeutic programs,  said the wheelchair will be available without cost to veterans. He says HOW will also be cooperative for its public use.
