SPEAKER: This month’s speaker will be John Trombetta, CEO of The Foundation for Free Enterprise Education. The Newtown Business Association presented a $525 gift in support of one area student who attended their internationally-acclaimed program, “Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week.” PFEW is presented each summer by the foundation, headquartered in Erie, and is dedicated to teaching high school juniors and seniors about the American private enterprise system. The Association’s gift provided one full scholarship for Council Rock North High School student Christopher Dimedio to attend one of PFEW’s five week-long sessions in July and August 2016.
This meeting will also kick off NBA’s award winning community event Welcome Day, the “Street Fair with Flair”, held this year on Sunday, May 7th.
Come hear all about what is happening in the Newtown Business Association and how it can help your business. Meet with colleagues and make new contacts at this early morning get-together. Breakfast is free for NBA members and first time guests. The meeting starts promptly at 7:30 am and wraps up at 9:00; guests are welcome to come to a breakfast meeting to see what NBA is all about. Attendees are asked to register online in order to ensure adequate breakfast fare; online registration closes at 12pm the day prior to the meeting.
NOTE: We welcome all guests to attend one (1) Business Card Exchange and one (1) Member Breakfast Meeting. A guest fee will be assessed for each event attended thereafter.
