The Prez Says... by Alan Bennett
As we draw 2019 to a close, I want to thank the Members of the Garden City Business Alliance for your confidence and patience during this important year full of change, challenges and
triumphs. I remain indebted to our former Executive Board Members Jill Butterbaugh, Sharon Hassett and Jill Lezotte-Kates: Thank You for all that you’ve done to make the GCBA a wonderful organization. I am eager to begin the next GCBA chapter with Elaine Salter and Joe Bartley, as we embark on another exciting, business-focused year full of hope and potential. As our quest to fill the Secretary role on the E-Board continues, I am certain one of our valuable members will step forward to accept this great responsibility.
Finally, it was wonderful to share an evening with friends old and new during the GCBA Holiday Gathering on Wednesday December 11th . To pay homage to our roots, the event at the Straight Farmhouse was held at the same location as the first GCBA
Holiday Gathering, and exactly like that first celebration, all of the food was donated by our generous members and friends of the GCBA. Led by Avon Representative and GCBA Member, Jill Lezotte-Kates, the evening was a smaller, more intimate affair, highlighted by the beautifully decorated Garden City Historical Museum. In closing, on behalf of the Garden City Business Alliance, we wish you and yours a very happy and healthy holiday season!
We look forward to seeing you on Friday, January 10, 2020!
GCBA President, 2020
