As part of the SCORE Library Series, we hosted a panel discussion, “Giving Back is Good for Business,” at the Main Branch in downtown Bradenton.
The three panelists were Jacki Dezelski, chief executive officer of the Manatee Chamber of Commerce; Trudy Moon, president of Air and Energy; and John Horne, president of Anna Maria Oyster Bar. Library managers Ericka Dow and Chelsea Baker moderated this lively, energetic conversation.
Applicants for various grants are vetted by the Manatee Community Foundation. The project that Horne is most proud of works with children to increase literacy.
