Speech by Larry Baker January 29, 2015 Mount Dora 2015 presented by the Chamber

Good evening! My name is Larry Baker for Main Street Leasing. Thank you for coming. I look out and see a lot of familiar faces.

Our goal from the beginning has been to create and rehabilitate properties to their best use keeping the historic aspects of the town's architecture in mind.
