This weekend, AIM Used Auto Parts was invited to the Annual dinner for The Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce. We ate, drank, and mingled with fellow business owners.
A speaker at the annual dinner spoke about the history of our great city of Riverview. The speech gave us a new found appreciation for the city we live & work in. We really are surrounded by great people and our city is growing so rapidly.
Here are some fun facts about the Riverview area:
- This past year, Riverview was ranked #67 Best Places to live by Money magazine. http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bestplaces/2012/snapshots/PL1260950.html
- The Alafia River that flows through Riverview is translated as "River of Fire" due to the phosphorus on the early river bottom glowing at night.
- Riverview’s population has grown +490.4% since 2000. (Source)
The annual dinner was a great time and we’re looking forward to more Chamber and community events!
