BABA Wins Dearborn Chamber’s Lauren Hill Award

The Bright Area Business Association was the recipient of the Lauren Hill Award presented at the Dearborn County Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner on Nov. 10, 2016.   The Chambers description of the award states, “…the Board of Directors created an award to honor Lauren Hill’s legacy of inspiration, collaboration and community spirit. The award will be given out each year to an individual or entity whose work over the past year has resulted in broad collaboration throughout the community to accomplish some beneficial goal.  By creating the award, the Chamber’s goal was to remember Lauren’s impact on this community and coninue that legacy to hopefully inspire others to continue working together towards common goals that benefit us all.” BABA was nominated for this award because of the commitment to improving our community and programs for networking, business education, community service, socializing and a charitable giving component.  We thank the Dearborn Chamber for presenting BABA with this prestigious award.  Read more at Eagle Radio’s web site; eaglecountryonline.com Dearborn Co Chamber Awards...

Donations to the Bright, Indiana Community.

The Bright Aerea Business Association has been extremely busy in 2014! In May we conducted the Golf Outing and in the Summer we created a booth at the Bright Community Festival. These events serve 2 purposes. Members build relationships by working together to meet our goals. Volunteerism can be work, but we try and make it as fun as possible. This resulted in more volunteers and donations this year. Over $10,000 was donated to our 3 non-profits. The Bright Fire Dept & EMS is important to every business and homeowner in the area. Since Bright is an unincorporated area, the department receives less Government funding. Several years ago BABA members determined that Bright Fire & EMS should be our primary recipient. We were extremely excited to present them a “Big Check” of $8716. Thank you for keeping our homes and businesses safe! “I just wanted to drop a note of thanks for the support that the Bright Area Business Association has provided to the Bright Volunteer Fire Company. For the last several years, your organization has been able to support us through the golf outing and work at the annual Bright Community Festival. We have seen real growth in your efforts to financially contribute to help provide Fire and Emergency Medical services to our community. As a volunteer member of the department, I can’t tell you how much it encourages me the see business leaders in the community come along side us to help meet the needs of our department. So once again, thanks so much for what you do. It really does matter.” Greg Mathena, Assistant Chief, Bright...
