    Save the date and start dreaming up your float! This year's Caring & Sharing Parade will take place on Sunday, November 5.

    As a reminder, there will be some changes to this year's parade. This past winter, some of our board members met with the Anne Arundel County Police Department's Traffic Safety Division regarding parade safety rules and a slight change to the route. As far as safety goes, we want to continue reiterating our rules that have been and will be in place year after year. This is for everyone's safety.

    • No revving of engines.
    • Children CANNOT get on and off floats or vehicles once the parade has started.
    • ONLY those WALKING in the parade are permitted to hand out candy. Candy is not to be thrown.(per the police department.)
    • If a child is driving a motorized vehicle, they must have a driver's license.
    • If you look in front of your group and cannot see another group, you must pick up the pace.
    • Absolutely no one can ride on the roof of a vehicle, this includes both children and adults.

    Additionally, there is going to be a slight change to this year's parade route. Instead of going back through E. Shore Road and 218th Street, AACPD is proposing that we simply go straight down Mountain Road, making a right onto Outing Avenue and concluding at George Fox Middle School.

    Lisa R. Hart – Arundel Federal Savings Bank – PBA Flag Chair

    As you drive down Mountain Road in Pasadena, you’ll notice two new additions to the Veterans Memorial Flag Site. The guns that you see are 105mm Howitzer’s from the Vietnam Era. They wouldn’t have made their way to our town without the help and expertise of a caring community.

    Several years ago a handful of local veteran’s, Rob Wisch, Lee Hoffman and Bob Recker, all Army Veterans and members of the 29th Division Association, approached the PBA with information regarding where to acquire guns for the Rt. 100 Veterans Memorial Flag Site.

    Knowing that several unsuccessful attempts were made in previous years to secure a tank, I knew the county would have to be involved and started the ball rolling. This was a joint venture between the US Army, Anne Arundel County and the Pasadena Business Association.

    There are many to thank in making this possible. First and foremost the PBA would like to thank The US Army, specifically Major General Linda Singh, Colonel Charles S. Kohler and the members of the 29th Division Association.

    Thanks also to our County Executive Steve Schuh; Rick Anthony and Mark Garrity of AACo Recreation & Parks, concrete specialist Oakley Construction and Vince Kelly of PT Graphics for designing and manufacturing the site signs. PBA members Mike Jacobs of JB Machine traveled to the Gunpowder Military Facility to take measurements for a custom built cradle to hold the guns. He was also an intricate part of the negotiation team. Other members of the negotiating team included PBA President Jerry Nicklow of Huff Ins., PBA Executive Director Sandi Parrish and myself. A local contracting company that was so kind as to move the guns to the site at no cost would like to remain anonymous but we will always be grateful for their care and expertise in getting these guns to their new home.

    It is our wish that you enjoy this enhancement to the flag site, but please respect the fact that these guns are Military Artifacts and are not to be touched or climbed on. Navy Vietnam Veteran Craig Rudder is currently working on trying to find out more about their history.

    The PBA will officially dedicate these artifacts during our Veteran’s Day Ceremony on Nov. 11, 2017 at 1:00pm. All are welcome! It is because of our Veterans and the sacrifices they have made that we continue to enhance this memorial site.

    God Bless America!

    This year's crab feast on Wednesday, July 12 was pretty darn hot, but still produced a great crowd! Attendees enjoyed a feast of delicious, heavy crabs as well as a spread of wonderful food from the culinary masters at Kurtz's Beach. We were also excited to again offer the sports memorabilia auction table by LGC Sports Marketing (special thanks to Phil Walls). A huge thank you to John Mason and his staff at Kurtz's Beach for another great event. Mark your calendars for next year's crab feast. Watch for a possible change to September when the weather is cooler.
