Leesburg Area Chamber of Commerce


LassiterWare Cares, Leesburg Area Chamber of Commerce, Jon’s Nursery and Boy Scouts beautify Beverly Shores Elementary.
Leesburg, Florida – On Saturday, August 22 2015, at 8:00 a.m., Beverly Shores Elementary School was invaded by rakes, shovels, mulch, plants and a tractor. With the assistance of School Principal Monica Gordon, community partners LassiterWare’s Foundation, LassiterWare Cares, Leesburg Area Chamber of Commerce, Jon’s Nursery and the local Boy and Cub Scouts tackled overgrown bushes, weeds and a lack-luster picnic area. Thirty (30) volunteers worked together to spread 40 yards of cedar mulch in existing floral beds and the student picnic area, as well as plant donated bushes and ground cover. “It was fun working with Sandi and the Chamber. It is my hope that the LassiterWare Cares team put a big smile on the face of Beverly Shores Elementary teachers and students for the first day back! We stand dedicated alongside the Leesburg Chamber in the development of the young minds and hearts of Lake County” Doug Childers, Jr., LassiterWare President/CEO.
Leesburg Area Chamber is fortunate to have community and business partners such as; Jon’s Nursery, who donated 25 Ligustrums, 25 Ligustrum-Jack Frosts and 10 flats of Asiatic Jasmine for the front flowerbeds to create a welcoming and inviting school campus. And, LassiterWare Insurance, a century old Leesburg business whose corporate values include community, take pride in supporting the places they live and work. LassiterWare Cares Foundation, which is solely funded by the employees of LassiterWare, donated time, sweat equity and mulch to the Beverly Shores Elementary Landscape project.
