    The dog days of summer are well upon us already. I’ll keep my message short this month, because I am sure you would rather enjoy your cold beverage of choice instead of reading a long drawn out message from me.

    This is the time to dig down deep and make things happen for your business. It is easy to be on vacation mode this time of year and coast through the summer and chalk up a slow quarter to summer vacations. But it is also a great time to dig deep, build relationships and move your business forward. Before you know it, the 4th quarter of 2016 will be upon us and the time to plan for a strong finish to the year is now. So while you are out enjoying the summer, like we were at our annual crab feast at Kurtz’s beach a few weeks ago, or like we were at the 2nd annual Eastern District National Night Out on August 2nd, or at the monthly meeting held on August 3rd at Cheshire Crab, make sure you take the time to solidify your relationships with the community and with the other great business leaders of the PBA. These relationships will help your business grow and become and help it become an established and respected part of the Pasadena community.

    So finish your summer strong, build great relationships and have a great 4th quarter of 2016. See you soon.

    The PBA held a Ribbon Cutting for Lake Shore Pet Hospital in Lake Shore Plaza.  Lisa Hart from Arundel Federal Savings Bank presented a citation on behalf of the County Executive and Delegate Nic Kipke was there to present a citation for the District 31 Delegation.  Thanks to Nic who appears at all of our Ribbon Cuttings.  PBA President Jerry Nicklow presented a citation on behalf of the PBA and Kim Davidson presented a citation from BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport and one of the famous airplane pens. 

    Lake Shore Pet Hospital is a small animal hospital serving pets and their families in the community of Pasadena and surrounding Anne Arundel County area.  Dr Trevor W. Ashley has been in practicing veterinary medicine for over 15 years. Lake Shore Pet Hospital, opened in July of 2016, is a full-service, general veterinary practice located in Lake Shore Plaza in Pasadena, Maryland.  His veterinary team emphasizes the importance of preventive care and we offer affordable comprehensive wellness plans to help make sure your pet is protected from most preventable illnesses.

    Dr. Ashley and his team are proud to serve pets and their families in the community of Pasadena and in an effort to give back to the community we serve, a portion of the hospital's profits goes to local animal shelters and animal rescue organizations in the community.

So when you’re driving past the flag and you see Brian out there taking care of it – give a beep to let him know that you appreciate his service to our community!
