Steeple Street Music Academy
I have been a fan of this town since moving to the cape 30 years ago, but it wasn't until opening a business in Mashpee two years ago that my admiration grew to a whole different level. Despite the pandemic, this community has pushed forward and has thrived in a time that many other towns have crumbled. The Mashpee Chamber has been a tremendous support to our business as well as others, so I'm looking forward to this growing relationship.
All that said, my name is Demetrius, and my wife and I opened up Steeple Street Music Academy in 2019 located in beautiful Mashpee Commons. We're on our way to opening a preschool program within the academy sometime in the next few months. We can't wait to see what develops as the business expands.

Her contributions to Mashpee include serving on boards for Mashpee Little League, Mashpee Youth Soccer, Mashpee Babe Ruth Baseball, Cape Cod Senior Babe Ruth Baseball, the Mashpee Community Concert Committee, and the ALS Family Charitable Foundation. She coached youth soccer and was a unified basketball player and coach for the LIFE (Living Independently Forever) Special Olympics team!
Corinne regularly volunteers for the Mashpee Chamber and has served as a Mashpee Chamber Ambassador. A member of Parents Supporting Parents and Mashpee's Substance-Use Task Force, Corinne is looking forward to adding Mashpee Chamber Board Member to her list of credentials. In addition to her volunteer work, Corinne opened Starboard Real Estate in 2004 and continues to work as a realtor today for eXp Realty.
A lover of the outdoors, Corinne can be found shellfishing, fishing, boating, kayaking, cycling, or enjoying a walk through our conservation lands. She also loves to travel! In her travels, she has ridden a camel on the beach in Mexico, been kissed by a Macaw parrot, and even flew in a complete circle around the world on a trip to and from Thailand!

My name is David Pina. I started working in the family business after graduating college and then started a rolloff company shortly thereafter.
In 2008 I bought the family business and moved it to Mashpee where I reside with my wife Amy and my two children. Five years ago I added to my enterprise and started a portable toilet business.
I have been a supporter of the Mashpee Chamber's Christmas Parade and La Tavola for the past several years now.
My family and I love the town of Mashpee and I look forward to serving on the board!
