The Pasadena Business Association marked their 30th anniversary with a festive party at Kurtz’s Beach on November 19th. Attended by many long-time members as well as some more recent businesses, a good time was enjoyed by all.
Thirty years ago a group of concerned business owners organized to allow a larger voice in local issues and to give back to the community. The organization has been very successful in meeting the goals and purpose of the founding members. Over the many years we have lost some of the founding members and they are missed but honored by the current group often.
Attendees had a blast flipping through every directory PBA has printed and watching the slide show of events through the years. Carol Cross, PBA’s first Executive Director, joined in the festivities, sharing how the group started and fun stories of those first few years
Thanks to all who attended, Kurtz’s for the warm hospitality, and all the PBA businesses that donated door prizes. Door prizes were awarded throughout the evening to the delight of the winners.
Thanks to Lauer’s for the cake and Edible Arrangements 726 for the fruit display. They were delicious
Hopefully, this fine group of business owners and volunteers with thrive for another thirty years and beyond as they do so much good for the community. Events such as the Pasadena Tree Lighting , Caring and Sharing Parade, School Supply Drive, A Child’s Christmas, Veteran’s Day Ceremony, and other events were created by this Association and continue to benefit the Greater Pasadena area.
Here’s to another 30 years of businesses in Pasadena.
