PALM HARBOR - Sharon Pikulinski’s mission at Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce’s 2014 annual Awards Dinner was to help promote the Palm Harbor Library’s Raise the Roof campaign.

“We really need to support this,” said chamber President Connie Davis, introducing the topic. “Our hearts are with this, because our library needs us. And where else can I have a captive audience like this - that has money?”

The library’s promotional video played, urging its viewers to buy raffle tickets to help pay for the library’s roof. Pikulinski, taking the lead in the campaign, was featured, explaining the $50 raffle tickets and the $10,000 grand prize.

But then library Director Gene Coppola began to list the other ways Pikulinski has helped her community over the years. The 30-year Palm Harbor resident was the chair for the school advisory council at two of the schools her daughters attended. She served the director of the board for the chamber of commerce and participated as for 20 years in its teacher appreciation breakfast. She was director of the Old Palm Harbor Main Street board. She is the current chair of the Palm Harbor Library Advisory Council, was nominated as the library’s woman of the year and has served on the board for the Palm Harbor Community Services Agency.

PALM HARBOR - Given the addition of the fourth entity overseen by the Palm Harbor Community Services Agency, its board is considering the merits of elevating one of the directors to a “super director” role.

Board member Tom McKone first suggested change during the agency’s September meeting, and it was again discussed Oct. 15. The new responsibilities would come with an increase in pay, he said.

“He or she could nurture the other directors and mentor them, especially in some of the major things we have going on,” McKone said.

PALM HARBOR - A three-person committee will review applications and recommend the best candidate to be the paid director of the tax-funded East Lake Recreation organization.

Rob Posavec sat through his first meeting as a member of the Palm Harbor Community Services Agency board, representing East Lake Youth Sports Association Oct. 15. He also will represent ELYSA on the three-person committee, joined by PHCSA representative Tom McKone and a county employee: Park and Recreation Operations Manager Kathy Swain. Together, the subcommittee will review applications and bring qualified candidates back to the PHCSA board for a vote.

The new director will be the fourth employee hired directly by the PHCSA board, equal to the directors of its other three entities who oversee the Palm Harbor Recreation organization and both the libraries in north Pinellas County. The ELYSA budget has allocated $52,489 to pay for the new director.
