One Community. BIG Opportunities!

The Development Group’s Inaugural meeting is an elevated experience!

As you make your way to your seat, you will receive a personal-sized charcuterie appetizer, water, and a free copy of Bill Yeargin’s book.

The Development Group CEO, Denise Grimsley, will lay out the vision for a vibrant community and the five pillars that will deliver big opportunities for Hardee County.

Renowned speaker, author, and businessman Bill Yeargin will deliver the keynote address and inspire attendees to take advantage of all that Hardee County has to offer.

A meet and greet with event speakers will include hors d’oeuvres and drinks. The reception will be hosted at the historic train depot and is included in the event ticket.
