One of Dunnellon’s older family owned and operated businesses is in the midst of celebrating its 60th anniversary, and to kick off the yearlong occasion, Fero & Sons Insurance hosted a communitywide picnic last Thursday, where citizens and customers could help with the festive occasion.
“It is important to remember our roots and where we started,” said Lanse Fero, vice-president and co-owner of the company. “Back in 1954 my grandfather, Dan Fero, believed it was important to always be involved in the community.”
