Boulder Creek Business Association Alive and Well

President Morgan Scarborough welcomed an especially large turnout at the general meeting of the Boulder Creek Business Association Wednesday night at Liberty Bank.  He announced that the organization has returned from the financial abyss and that over $10,000 in debt, amassed as a result of expenses incurred hosting the Art and Wine Festival, had been retired.  He gave credit to board members: Doug Conrad, Chris Currier, Chris Flynn, Bob Locatelli, Carolyn Sanborn, Tonya Silvestri,  Terry Vierra and Wayne Williams.  

Liberty Bank provided the association with a line of credit to allow it to continue with its 4th of July parade as well as golf tournament and town barbecue it co-hosts with the Boulder Creek Fire District.

Plans for the towns annual Halloween and Christmas celebrations were discussed as well as ongoing efforts at downtown beautification.  Highway 9 merchants will again treat kids and their parents between 5 and 7 on Sunday Oct 31st.  The Boulder Creek Park and Rec District, along with local Boy Scouts will have a haunted house and festival at the Rec Center behind the Fire Department until 7:30PM.   

The world’s tallest Christmas tree will be lit on the Friday following Thanksgiving when  “Santa Comes to Town”  which will include an appearance by Kris Kringle, as well as other activities and entertainment being planned for residents and visitors to this popular event..

A downtown merchants committee has been formed and is planning for joint promotions.  Michelle Murphy, Lydia Lipson, Agnes DeLucchi and Chris Flynn have reached out to over 30 retailers, restaurants and realtors with positive reaction.

The annual association membership drive is underway.  Annual dues are $45.  All local businesses are welcome.  A membership form can be downloaded at the Association's website.

The next BCBA meeting will be Wednesday November 10, 6PM at Liberty Bank.
