Great Businesses Making a Great Community

    As you may or may not know, last week was a sad week for the Pasadena Business Association, as we mourned the
    passing of longtime member Tom Redmond. Tom Redmond had many roles throughout his life – husband, father,
    grandfather, friend, county councilman, volunteer firefighter, founding PBA member and former PBA president. Tom
    joined the PBA about 6 months after its formation in 1986. In 1992 Tom was elected President.

    In 1992, he organized the first Legislative Day in Annapolis. In 1993, he put together the 1st Membership Directory;
    Tom knew that this would become an invaluable tool to promote PBA. He spent countless hours doing the layout,
    writing articles and selling the ads. The PBA still produces this Membership Directory and it is a great resource for members as well as the community.

    In 1993 Tom started working on the very first Trade show; he thought that this would be a good way to showcase your business, display products and services to other PBA members and the business community. PBA just held their 22nd Trade Show.
    Tom started working organizing this parade in 1993 while serving as PBA president, but it took 2 years to get it organized (permit problems – imagine that) and off the ground. He chaired this event for 15 years. It is truly because of him and his love for this community that we are all able to gather for the parade every November.
    Also in 1993, along with Paul Gable of Gable Signs & Graphics, he designed the PBA Logo and PBA door Logos. In 2001 Tom started the Trivia contest at the Christmas Party because the only entertainment was the members singing the 12 days of Christmas. This was a great time for everyone in attendance. Tom was again elected President of the PBA in 2003 – 2004, he was Immediate Past President from 2005 - 2007, he
    was then elected to the Board of Directors from 2008 - 2011. We will truly miss him and his dedication to the PBA and the community.

    I sincerely hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe Halloween. It is hard to believe how fast this year is passing. Nevertheless, in the last two months of the year, the PBA has many exciting events planned that are rewarding for everyone. Let’s start by thinking about the most recent event, the Trade Show located at Earleigh Heights Fire Hall and the “Harvest for the Hungry” Parade.

    The trade show was a phenomenal success this year, with a record breaking attendance of people, very impressive. A huge “Thank You” to all the vendors who participated in the trade show this year. In addition, a very special thanks to Lauer’s Supermarket & Bakery who graciously donated all the wonderful food. November 1, 2015 was our annual “Harvest for the Hungry” parade, where the community, churches, schools and local businesses dig in and donate funds and canned goods to restock local food pantries so that no one goes without a good meal during the holiday season. Our heartfelt thanks is sent to each and every one of you, that make these events successful and nourishing to our friends in need.

    Excitement on the way brings one of the many events in which the PBA is involved. One event that really pulls at mine and my family’s heart strings is “A Child's Christmas”. This fund-raiser helps so many children receive things from toys to warm clothing to everyday items that you or I might take for granted. It is wonderful to see families, children, churches and the business community join together to donate so generously at this time of year.

    In the spirit of giving, how could you not think about Good Ole’ St Nick. Our Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony has quickly become a tradition here in Pasadena and will take place December 1, 2015 in the Lake Shore shopping center. Do not forget Santa is watching so spread the word and gather the children to visit our beloved Santa.

    Even with the issues of the world, we should still be thankful for so many things. Our families, friends, health, faith and freedoms are just a few to mention. So take a moment during the hustle and bustle, at Thanksgiving and throughout the year to just stop and pause, look around and be grateful for what you do have and not so much what you don’t.

    God bless you and your families and pray that God will look over our young men and women in the Armed Forces fighting overseas.

    PBA President, Mike Jacobs
