    Our June General Membership Meeting was held at Celebrations at the Bay. What a beautiful venue and the food was fantastic. We thank Catering by Uptown for hosting this event and putting on a great event for us.

    We were so proud to give away scholarships to 5 High School Seniors, 3 Eighth Graders and 2 Fifth Graders this year. Congratulations to Caroline Schultz, Northeast High School who received the Isabel Shipley Cunningham Scholarship Award. This scholarship is in honor of Mrs. Isabel Shipley Cunningham, an Annapolis author and former teacher, who spent years writing both books. Brady Cassell, Northeast High School, was awarded the Ed Lauer Scholarship. Mr. Ed Lauer of Lauer’s Supermarket and Bakery was a founding member and first president of the Pasadena Business Association 30 years ago.

    Adam Beres, Coral Dittmar & Nathan Plaza were also High School Seniors who were award scholarships. Rylee Columb, Brian Plummer, and Eric Zhang were awarded the 8th grade scholarships. Lillian Evans and Rachael Zabko were awarded the 5th grade scholarships.

    We are so proud of each and every student. Please understand that reading and deciding the winners is not an easy task. Mary Brodowski of BB&T and Linda Loane of The Bank of Glen Burnie volunteered for that task. I know it was a hard decision.

    Thank you to the Education Committee for their efforts in making this a great event. Thanks to Katrina Williams of Katrina Krauss Photography/Free State Photo Booths for taking the great pictures for the day.

Pastor Copley says “Our doors are open to people of all backgrounds & cultures, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. We are a contemporary, Pentecostal church who loves the family and desires to see each individual grow.”

    Pastor Copley and the members of Chesapeake Christian Center are always willing to give a hand when the PBA needs a facility or man power so we thank them and wish them the best. We are looking forward to some great home cooked meals out of their new kitchen.

    The 19th Annual Educational Excellence Awards was held on May 11th.  This is a great event that PBA has been sponsoring for many years.  We truly enjoy meeting these dedicated and exceptional teachers. The PBA honored Kelli Johnson, a Fourth Grade Teacher at Riviera Beach Elementary School.  It was fun to sit with her and her family, especially her young son who was so proud of his mom.

    Kelli posed for a picture on the stairs at Michael’s with her family and her Riviera Beach School family.  We also had Linda Loane from the Bank of Glen Burnie and the PBA Treasurer, Gina Cook , Avon, and the PBA Secretary, and Brian Conrad, Edward Jones, PBA Board Member to help her celebrate her accomplishments.

    We were so happy to welcome another new PBA Business with a Ribbon Cutting.  Noah’s House is a great place to take your children or grandchildren for indoor play.  According to the owners – “this place is for all the parents that are looking to connect with other parents. This is for all the parents who feel trapped and need a loving place to go. This is for all the parents, who want to have fun with their kids without the added stress of too much routine. This is for all the parents who want to know that their kids are in a safe space.”  Khalifah & Andre Carter are the owners and loving parents of Noah.  They started this business so Khalifah, a teacher, could spend her day with Noah. 

    Thanks to Delegate Nic Kipke and his family, Senator Bryan Simonaire, Patrick Mulford representing Councilman Derek Fink, Lisa Hart from Arundel Federal Savings Bank, Brian Galyan from DCA Imaging Systems and Jim Wisniewski from the Pasadena Voice for coming out and helping us celebrate.

    My grandchildren loved playing at Noah’s House and I am sure yours will too.

    Our May General Membership Meeting was a great way to find out what happened during the legislative session.  Senator Bryan Simonaire, Delegate Nic Kipke, and Delegate Meagan Simonaire gave us an overview.  Delegate Nic Kipke presented Billy Greer with a citation for his heroic efforts when jumping into the storm water management pond behind Lake Shore Plaza to help Amelia Puderbaugh; she had a medical issue and plunged into the pond.  We are so proud of Billy for his courage.

    Thanks to Kurtz’s Beach for a great meeting and what a nice place to have a meeting in the newly renovated space.

    When thinking about the Pasadena Business Association and why you might support our member businesses, think about some great reasons to Shop Local!

    Buy Local - Support Pasadena
    When you do business with an independent, locally-owned business that is a Member of the Pasadena Business Association, rather than a nationally-owned business, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses and service providers and it helps strengthen the economic base of our local Pasadena community.

    We Support Community Groups
    Community groups like schools, sport teams and local charities receive more support from smaller local business owners and the PBA than they do from large businesses.

    Keep our Pasadena Community Unique
    Where we shop, where we eat and have fun -- all of it makes our Pasadena community home. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of Pasadena. Pasadena Businesses should do business with other Pasadena Businesses.

    Create more good jobs
    Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally, and in our Pasadena community, provide the most jobs to residents. Buy local and keep your paycheck in Pasadena.

    Get Better Service
    Local businesses often hire Pasadena residents with a better understanding of the products they are selling and take more time to get to know customers. Taking care of our neighbor. 

    Invest in Community
    Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s future.

    Encourage Local Prosperity
    It is clear that local entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more likely to invest and settle in communities like Pasadena that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character.
