Chamber names its top people of the year

The Largo/Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce has announced that business leader and community patron George Glover has been named the organization's Citizen of the Year and Laurie Bunce, president of Centratel Services, is its Mac Norcross Small Business Leader of the Year.

The Palms of Largo will be celebrated as the organization's Business Member of the Year, a new award category.
