St. Joseph’s Hospital South Sponsors August’s
Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce
Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) hosted their monthly event on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, at The Regent, 6437 Watson Road, Riverview, FL. St. Joseph’s Hospital South hosted this month’s luncheon and had detailed construction plans for all to view on display inside the ballroom. As attendees networked and conversed, many stopped by the plans to get a better look at what the future holds for the hospital. As the meeting began, Pastor Walt Robbins, Next Level Church, provided the day’s invocation. 2019 Honorary Mayor of Riverview Bill Andrew, Tessera of Brandon, 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 and Ambassadors to make themselves known to the room. She then invited Phil Menden, President St. Joseph’s Hospital South, to take the stage. Mr. Menden provided a community update on St. Joseph’s Hospital South and touched on some of the upcoming additions to their facility.
As the luncheon moved on to New Business, GRCC board member and event co-chair for Teaching to Excellence, Kendra Wilson, Suncoast Credit Union, had the honor of presenting a $500 donation in Dr. Earl Lennard’s name to representatives of the Boys & Girls Club, Ricky Gallon and Allison Fraga. This donation was made possible as a result of the success of GRCC’s annual Teaching to Excellence event.
