Do­ing some­thing good in and for our com­mu­nity never re­mains un­no­ticed. Mak­ing a dif­fer­ence is an over­all re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, and it could mean even more when it’s rec­og­nized by a larger au­di­ence. At the an­nual Cel­e­bra­tion of Busi­ness & Tourism Awards Lun­cheon and Trade Show, the Lee County Vis­i­tor & Con­ven­tion Bureau pre­sented its long­stand­ing an­nual Junonia Award to Mat­lacha artist Leoma Love­grove for her ded­i­cated work that has been a key in­stru­ment in the county’s tourism com­mu­nity. Love­grove is known world­wide for her bold de­pic­tions of flora and fauna in a rain­bow of bright Florida hues. No vis­i­tor leaves Mat­lacha with­out a stop at her funky gallery. The Junonia Award was cre­ated in 2006 to rec­og­nize in­di­vid­u­als who demon­strate lead­er­ship and ded­i­ca­tion through­out the lo­cal tourism in­dus­try. leo­ma­love­grove.com
