About 40 Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce members met off the island on Jan. 11 at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse in Sarasota. There were a lot of familiar faces and also a few new members in attendance.
Miranda Dupuis and Denise Boykin joined the week before. They work for Red Door Painting in Bradenton.
“We do residential, commercial, interior and exterior painting,” Boykin said.
Cindy Jessup joined in December. Her business is Welcome Home Concierge, a home-watching service. Her customers are mainly seasonal. During inspections, she’s looking for things such as pest infestation and humidity blooms. Jessup is certified through Home Watch, and each inspection comes with a full report for insurance purposes if a homeowner needs to file a claim.
The chamber meets once a month “Off the Clock” at different area restaurants. Call 383-2466 to become a member.
