The Town of St. Leo bestowed a proclamation of appreciation upon John Moors, executive director of the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce, who is retiring on June 7. The proclamation was bestowed during the Town Commission meeting on May 8.
Town commissioners honored Moores for his longtime service to the East Pasco area, including St. Leo, San Antonio, Zephyrhills and Dade City.
Moors has spent nearly 13 years promoting economic growth and quality of life in the greater Dade City area. He represented area businesses on the Saint Leo University Hospitality program industry liaison council and, at one point, was an adjunct professor at Saint Leo University.
Moors also initiated the “Access” series of events, which provides an opportunity to showcase the East Pasco area for elected officials and business leaders, and Moors nurtured the growth of the Annual Kumquat Festival, which is now an event with regional economic impact.
