PBA Wishes Everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
As I am sitting at my desk writing this message, I can hardly believe that my first year as President is already coming to an end, and what a year it has been. We have had great, informative monthly membership meetings, awesome networking events, and just incredible signature events. None of this would be possible without the incredible officers, board of directors and executive director. And most of all it would not be possible without our fantastic business members. It is great to see how everyone works together to make sure the PBA stays at the top of our game.
I had the honor of attending the recent Veteran’s Day ceremony and once again, I was at a loss for words from the outpouring of love and respect that our community gives to those who have served our country. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make sure that this is such a special event in Pasadena.
Another special event that we had in November, was the PBA’s 30th anniversary celebration. It was great to see everyone at Kurtz’s and to take a stroll down memory lane with a fantastic slide show of past PBA events. And it was topped off by the original Executive Director, Carol Cross, sharing her memories of the early years of the PBA. It was just amazing and I was glad to be a part of it.
Looking ahead, we have A Child’s Christmas, which from what I hear, we have every child being taken care of this year by our incredible members. This is truly a special campaign that gives back to the children of Pasadena. As the years go by, I am continually amazed by the hard work, dedication and generosity of our local business community. They say that small business is the backbone of the local community. If that is the case, from what I see, Pasadena is in a great place, because the small businesses of the PBA are comprised of some of the greatest people that I know.
I am looking forward to serving again next year and please let me know if there is anything more that I can do for you to make our organization even better than it already is.
