    On Tuesday, June 28, 2022, the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) hosted their Monthly Investor Meeting at the beautiful Winthrop Barn Theatre in Riverview.  A delicious lunch was provided by 3 C’s Catering, and Dr. Bryan Thatcher of Thatcher Properties, delivered the day’s Invocation to begin the meeting. Leading the attendees this month in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance was Retired US Army Colonel, DJ Reyes, this month’s military recognition recipient whose long list of service and honors were lauded by the GRCC Military Affairs Committee Leader, Joe Eletto, of Century 21 Beggins.

Special thanks were given to the audio and visual support for the luncheon provided by DJ Seth Dugan, Doogie Entertainment; photography by Gerardo Luna Photographs; and linens provided by Susan Williams of Fancy That Specialty Linens. Board Chair Elect, Tammy See, OEL Heating & Cooling, came forward and recognized the valued Renewing Investors in attendance.

    Special recognition was given to HCSO officers in attendance, including Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office District 4 Major Dennis Fogarty.  A special commendation on behalf of the entire Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners was then presented to Master Deputy Brian Sherman, the HCSO Deputy of the Year.

    The Sponsor for the luncheon was Woodie’s Wash Shack, with presentations being given by Melissa Roberts, Business Development Manager; Jake DeGeare, Marketing Director; and Coach “J” John Johnson, Business Relationship Manager.  Following the Sponsor’s presentation, Elena Westrop of Charity Clothing Pickup, and Theresa Sharkey of Your Pie spoke of the Taste of GRCC promotion that was conducted during the month of June and gave away several gift cards to attendees in celebration of the successful campaign.
