During a wonderful evening Gala Dinner at Grandezza on October 28th hosted by the Estero Chamber of Commerce, George Zalucki of the Chamber announced the 25 individuals selected by residents as the most influential people in our community in 2021.
Sixty individuals were originally nominated for this award by Estero residents, although some declined. Following a tally of votes, these 25 “influencers” were selected by you, our residents and business leaders, as those individuals who have helped enhance the quality of life for residents living in Estero.
The honorees, in alphabetical order include:
Our community is fortunate to have these honorees, along with many others, who tirelessly volunteer their time to make our Village such a special place. The ECCL is especially proud that two of its team, Jim Gilmartin, President, and Jim Shields, Board Member and long-standing ECCL volunteer, were honored in this way.
The Village of Estero Top 25 Persons of Greatest Influence program is a joint effort of the Estero Chamber of Commerce, the Estero Council of Community Leaders, the Village of Estero, the Estero Forever Foundation, the Estero Historical Society, the Estero Rotary Club, the Estero Life Magazine and other Estero entities.
