East Lee County Chamber Annual Gala Set For March 19th – Plantation Golf And Country Club

By Mike Welch

The first quarter of the New Year will see the Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Gala with new additions to the program.


 In addition to honoring our area teachers as our community’s shining stars, the Chamber also honors our firefighters/EMS personnel as well as member so law enforcement of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. We are expanding those awards to include our medical professionals of our hospital systems and from the healthcare community. Many of them are now members of the Chamber. This pandemic has highlighted their valuable and heroic service to all of us in the communities that they serve. Stay tuned for details on this exciting event.


Lee County Commissioner Cecil Pendergrass was recently installed as Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners and will serve as Chair for 2022. Cecil is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Chamber. Commissioner Pendergrass is well known in our community, and we wish him the best for the coming year.


The Chamber will continue as a resource to our business members and the public for useful information as well as programs being developed for area businesses with federal pass-through dollars. Stay tuned to www.elccoc.org
