Clubs and organizations
Brooksville Vision Foundation amps up Hernando Park amenities: The Brooksville Vision Foundation recently completed a project to add 400-amp electrical service to Hernando Park's community band shell. The new electrical service will allow the county facility, located in downtown Brooksville, to host concerts and events without the need for a generator.
Libraries, librarians and library supporters honored: The Florida Library Association recently honored outstanding libraries, individuals, businesses and library supporters at its annual conference in Orlando.
The Hernando County Public Library System received the Excellence in Marketing and Public Relations award. When the Hernando library system was selected as the association's 2013 Library of the Year, the county was in the midst of a difficult budget year. Winning the award helped. The library used the award to launch a community awareness campaign focusing on the importance of the library system.
The objectives included keeping the library system fully funded, receiving community support and recognition, and building staff morale by recognizing and celebrating the achievement.
