CEO Report: School’s Out For Summer
Now that June is upon us, school is out, and family vacations have started. We look forward to our community 4th of July Parade and Picnic. This year’s theme, “Honoring our Eco System, represents what we in the Keys seek to preserve and protect. That being said, get creative and please enter your float! The parade starts at 10:00 am and will begin at Anthony’s Clothing Store at MM98. All entries need to arrive between 8:30 and 9:00 am. The Grand Marshall leading the parade this year will be Key Largo’s very own Captain Spencer Slate. Bring your family and friends, and get there early — you don’t want to miss this time-honored tradition.
A picnic follows the parade at Key Largo Community Park. Complimentary hot dogs and beverages will be served while supplies last. To volunteer or help sponsor the event, call the Chamber at 305-451- 1414. In other news, the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce Governance for Good Board of Director’s training continues. The committee, led by Roberto Alonzo, has been integrating new board policies as part of the steps toward the governance goal. Future board members and presidents will no doubt gain knowledge from this training. Have a safe and happy summer, and enjoy your Keys.
Mark Charles Chairman of the Board Key Largo Chamber of Commerce
