We Held off the Rain!!

Last Thursday the Chamber held its June Business After Hours, at Tiger Town. We had a ‘Flying’ good time, thanks to our host the Lakeland Flying Tigers and their co-sponsor Lakeland Electric. Plenty of food, drink, networking, and baseball for all. Attendees enjoyed it enough to say that the Flying Tigers should host this every year. We couldn’t have agreed more. A few pictures are shown below as a testament to the fun had. To view the entire gallery of pictures, please click here.

Ribbon Cutting – Learning Resource Center

Learning Resource Center of Polk County, Inc.
1628 S. Florida Ave
Lakeland, FL 33803
863-688-9477

“The Learning Resource Center of Polk County, Inc. (LRC) was founded by the Junior League of Greater Lakeland, Inc. in 1975 to help students by providing personalized supplemental education programs and consulting services for parents. At that time it was known as the Learning Disabilities Center and its primary purpose was to serve students with specific learning disabilities and provide support for their parents. The name changed in 1977, as programs for the learning disabled grew in the public school system, and LRC expanded its services to help all students maximize their learning potential.

From its humble beginnings as a small volunteer group working in borrowed space, LRC today has over 300 certified teachers who provide county wide services to over 3,000 students ages five through adult.”

Congratulations to Executive Director Pam Craven and the entire LRC team on the beautiful new building. Thanks to Mayor Buddy Fletcher, Board Members, Hugh Autry, Andy Hernandez, and Paul Norris for attending.
