Some are newbies who decided -- or were forced -- to start new lives here, others are Florida natives, going back two or three generations. What they all have in common is that they now call Tampa Bay home, and love being here!
Meet some of our business members, and find out what brought them here!
Karen Wiltshire Rigsby, Classy Gal: I retired from Alberta Government Child Protection and moved to Nova Scotia to live the easy life. After being unexpectedly widowed, I met and fell and love with a wonderful man from Florida - so moved here in 2009 to marry him and "live the good life" which is what I am doing now. I am still "retired" as they say but love the people I have met while pedaling my Miche products.
Billie Jo Grassinger Bell, Tampa Bay Natural Health: I moved to Spring Hill in 1979 from Pittsburgh, Pa. My father had hip replacement surgery and was afraid of falling in the snow. I was insistent that I was not moving, they couldn't make me, but apparently - they could!
