Chamber needs new door

The United Way of Manatee County and the Manatee Chamber of Commerce held a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony Feb. 10 at the Dan and Corrine McClure Center, the new facility they share at 4215 Concept Court, Lakewood Ranch.

This week, a Good Samaritan delivering a donation of food for the collection barrel at the McClure Center accidentally crashed into the front door, while seeking the protection of an overhang during a rain storm.

Fortunately, there were no injuries: the office hadn't opened yet and no one was in the building. The Good Samaritan left a note accepting responsibility for the accident.

The Chamber is now seeking bids for a replacement door. The first bid received came in at more than $6,000, according to President Bob Bartz.

Expensive door. I got a bid recently for new roof, and it wasn't much more than that.
