On Thursday, March 28, the Belleview Chamber of Economic Partnership (CEP) met at Saint Mark’s Greek Orthodox Church at 9926 SE 36th Ave in Belleview. The Belleview CEP is a significant affiliate of the Ocala Metro Chamber and Economic Partnership. This collaboration reflects a shared commitment to fostering economic prosperity and growth within the community.

The sponsor of this month’s meeting, which happens on the 4th Thursday of each month, was Citizens First Bank of Belleview. Citizens First Bank at 5068 SE Abshier Blvd in Belleview didn’t waste time in setting the bar high. They had the networking event catered by Mojo’s Grill & Catering. Highlights from Mojo’s catering included a tasty “Backyard BBQ” that had a corn fritter atop tender pulled pork. Citizens First Bank had alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks at the ready, as well as offering Nothing Bundt Cakes, which quickly became a fan favorite.

This event is a great opportunity for local Belleview businesses to network and come together for the greater good of our community.
