    My name is Lad Banner (formally, Maurice L. Banner IV) and I have been an ASE certified mechanic for over 35 years. I have been a Pasadena resident since I was 12, and am very happy to have grown up, been educated and have close local friendships in the area with many members and owners of businesses in this area. Pasadena is home to me and I am grateful to be able to have started my business here, so close to my home. After many years of working for others and owning a shop in Baltimore many years ago, I have decided to open up my own personal shop in the Pasadena area. I needed to open up a business where honesty and integrity can be shown daily to the people of Pasadena. I am a hard working mechanic who will work diligently to find the solution to any problem on a vehicle. The actual business started in my home about a year and a half ago and it has grown so quickly that I had to expand  my services. I have since relocated to 4110 Suite B Mountain Road. I work on almost any vehicle except for large trucks . I am expanding the business daily to accommodate the needs of my customers. The shop is located in-between Cookies Kitchen and the Antique Shop.  I enjoy serving Pasadena locals and am enjoying the many new friendships that I am making along the way. I would appreciate the opportunity to become a part  of such a caring and giving group as the Pasadena Business Association.

    What a great way to get your business name out to possible customers for pennies and it remains out for one year. I have had members of the community tell me they use it as their yellow pages when looking for goods or services. We print and distribute 5,000 copies of our directory and have the community calling asking when the new issue will be available.

    As we wrapped up another successful year with A Child’s Christmas, we did so with a heavy heart as we remembered our dear friend, Debi Grim who was responsible for starting this project more than 15 years ago. Between sponsors and donations, we provided gifts and food for 73 children from 27 families in Pasadena who are recommended to us by the school counselors. Our very generous sponsors put their hearts and souls into purchasing gifts for their families. Some of our sponsors do all the shopping, while others have their employees or teams buy gifts. One of our sponsor groups rents a bus and take about 40 adults on a pub crawl which serves two purposes: to raise money for A Child’s Christmas while supporting Shop Local. Another sponsor is a PBA business owner who showed her granddaughter the true meaning of Christmas by having her shop for our one our children. We are so fortunate every year to have so many of the same sponsors who make it easy for us. Many thanks to Calvert Vet, Marie Johnston, Chesapeake High School Cheer and Football teams, Chesapeake Robotics, John and Bunnie Clark, Stephanie Molony, Brown’s Toyota, North Arundel Federal Savings Bank, Fay’s Bus, Melanie Meeks, Stacy Mork, Friends of Downs Park, Jenni Smith, Leah Stocksdale, Cityline Business Park, Clark and Anderson, Holly Bair, Ace Hardware, Jet Blast, Crabby Crawlers, Chesapeake High School faculty, Baker Sisters Dentistry, Northeast High Drama department, Arundel Federal Savings Bank, Absolute Underground, The Office, Victory Lounge, Pat’s Select, Michele Dunn, Huff Insurance, Lauer’s Supermarket, BB & T Bank, Margie Englert, Peggy Preloh, Carmie Buckey, Kelly Murphy, Sue and Josh Chiasson, Bay Country Rentals, Shirley Jacobs, Bonnie Dausch, The Bank of Glen Burnie, PBA Leads Group, David Moore of Coldwell Banker, Diana Levine, Arundel Business Bulders, Idea Weaver Promotions, and anyone who made a donation at the tree lighting or brought a toy. Donations are used to purchase gifts and Lauer’s gift cards for families. We are able to pull everything together due to the help of Sandi Parrish and Melissa Bajadek. John Mason graciously opens the doors of Kurtz’s Beach so we can bring in volunteers from the Chesapeake High Football and Cheer Teams to wrap gifts and sort food. Lastly, thank you to Lisa and Rob Elliott who spearheaded a food drive at Chesapeake High School so we had plenty of food for our families. Thank you everyone and may you all have a safe and blessed 2017.

    Our December meeting was held at Beefalo bobs on Ft. Smallwood Road. What a nice hall and the food was great and the staff is so nice. Ellen Sample, Director Office of Real Estate and Noise Abatement and Paul Shank, Chief Engineer, Division of Planning and Engineering for BWI Airport talked about Next Gen, traffic patterns and new technology for air traffic control at BWI airport. We know that many of our members have concerns about the airplane noise and we are going to put one of our members on their business advisory board so we can stay aware and have some input into this situation.

    Delegate Nic Kipke presented a citation to the PBA for their 30th Anniversary and also to North Arundel Savings Bank for their 60th Anniversary. Congratulations to North Arundel Savings Bank.

    Doug Cashmere, Ace Hardware & Hearth

    In true Pasadena Style I am proud to say that this year’s Christmas Tree lighting was a huge success with over one thousand people in attendance. The event has always been one of the highlights of the year for everyone involved with the Pasadena Businesses Association. It’s about the kids is the overwhelming theme of the event. And the kids had a wonderful time this year thanks to: DJ Marcus spinning a mix of Holiday and Popular Music, Photos with Santa Claus taken by Mojo Creative Digital, cookies from Two Rivers Restaurant and Mutiny Pirate Bar & Island Grille, Hot Chocolate from The Green Turtle, Ice Cream from Bruster’s, Free State Photo Booths by Katrina Williams, games for the kids sponsored by Ace Hardware, face painting by Welcome to Neverland, games by Macaroni Kid, Buses by Atlantic Coast Charters, portable heaters by Bay Country Rentals, games from Marco Pizza and Calvert Veterinary. Arundel Federal Savings Bank provides the electricity for the tree. With an event like this we could not make it happen without the countless hours of help from the members of the PBA: Sandi Parrish, Linda Loane, Larry Sells, Scott Ellis, Angela Balsamo, Paulette Morris , Brian Conrad , John Thomas, Mike Jacobs, Gina Cook, Lisa Hart, Dick Parrish, Dave Rosage , John Williams, Ruth Toomey , and Hayley Gable – Bowerman . We always have special help decorating the tree from Gable Signs. And a big thanks goes out to Lake Shore Fire Department, Rivera Beach Fire Department, Russell Schlick Ladder Truck and the Anne Arundel Police reserve Officers and Eastern District especially Corporal Bellis. Thanks to Nic Kipke and his Family for lighting the Tree. Thanks to The Pasadena Community for another great Tree Lighting!!!

    The Pasadena Business Association wants to thank Ace Hardware & Hearth, Lake Shore Plaza for all of the help with the tree lighting ceremony. They not only help coordinate the entire evening, the employees set up for the event, work the event, and clean up after the event. They are a great group to work with and I personally want to say thanks to Doug, Scott and everyone at Ace Hardware who helped make this night so special.

    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.

    Jerry Nicklow, PBA President

    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.
