    Sponsored by Suncoast Credit Union
    Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) hosted their Annual Taste of GRCC event on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at The Regent, 6437 Watson Road, Riverview, FL. The June Membership Meeting Luncheon was sponsored by Suncoast Credit Union and Pastor Mike Braddock, ARISE Assembly of God at Southshore, provided the day’s invocation.  2019 Honorary Mayor of Riverview Bill Andrew of Aldea Green - Eagle Senior Living was represented by his sister Jill Andrew to lead the group in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
    The day’s event was led by GRCC President Michelle Mosher, Southshore Insurance Professionals, LLC.  She welcomed everyone to the luncheon and allowed time for the Board of Directors, Past Presidents, Staff and Ambassadors to make themselves known to the room.  She also recognized Tammy Schoonover, the new Senior Community Development Manager for American Cancer Society, who was in the audience.  In addition to giving great praise and gratitude to the GRCC members who provided the day’s tasty treats, she also provided everyone with vital information related to this year’s Honorary Mayor of Riverview race.  This committee will have an information table available at the next luncheon on July 23rd.  This will also be GRCC’s Member Appreciation Luncheon where there will be plenty of fun and games provided in addition to free admission for members.
