BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There is a new — permanent — reminder of why public service is so valuable to the Boca Raton community. And the permanent reminder is a good thing.
From our friends at Boca Chamber:
The Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Boca Class of 2013 has left their permanent mark in the Boca Raton community. Leadership Boca 2013 purchased a paver from Gumbo Limbo Nature Center as part of the center’s “Pave the Way!” program. The paver dedication occurred at Gumbo Limbo on August 30, 2013 at 4:30 P.M.
Hugo Vargas, this year’s class President was instrumental in the project and felt that, “Gumbo Limbo is an extraordinary foundation; their support of our oceans’ animals is amazing. Simultaneously providing an environment for our community to become more educated and entertained is astounding. Supporting Gumbo Limbo's efforts through the “Pave the way!” program is just a small token of our appreciation as Leadership Boca 2013 alumni.”
The group raised funds to inscribe the paver with the words: Leadership Boca 2013, “Defying the odds” We are LEADERSHIP.
“We are proud and excited that Leadership Boca 2013 has dedicated a paver to Gumbo Limbo and we look forward to the group’s and communities’ support of coastal and marine education,” stated Susan Walker, Board of Trustees for Friends of Gumbo Limbo.
