Last week, our guest speaker was Jeff Hughes (our commissioner).
He spoke to us about the Stateline/Salt Fork Rd. project. We decided that BABA is going to host a “town meeting” at the Library on North Dearborn Rd on November 16th at 7pm. This is an informative meeting to educate the business owners and citizens of the plan of the county and for the county to hear feedback. The Bright Beacon has donated space in the November issue advertising this event.

BABA is also working on putting together a Craft Fair next fall. If you are interested in being on the committee, please let me know.

We are also hosting a charity event at Spanky’s. My new Club/Sports Bar on Mt. Pleasant Rd. The Charity of choice is Operation Thank you. Again…we are looking for a committee. I will supply food, beverage and entertainment. Time is of the essence on this one. It is scheduled for December 10th.

The deadline for participation in the Bright Beacon next month is
Dec 5th. Please let Martin know if you plan to be involved and make payment arrangements with him.

Most importantly…participation and new members have to be priority. Our meetings are the 1st Tuesday of every month at Sugar Ridge Golf Club at 8 am.
