Annually, the PBPA hosts its Awards Banquet & Silent Auction. It presents awards to Paoli businesses/people in appreciation of their contributions to the community. Proceeds from the event are donated to a charitable recipient. Several of the recipients of this year’s PBPA awards/donation were kind enough to express their appreciation:
Thank you once again to the Paoli Business Association for honoring us with the PBPA Media award. It was such a great event, we were so proud to be a part of it! And kudos to the PBPA for donating all of the funds raised from the event to the Paoli and Tredyffrin Libraries!

Thank you so much for a lovely evening, and thank you for choosing the Tredyffrin Public Libraries as your charitable recipient this year. The setting, program, food – everything was wonderful. I was so glad to be able to attend, and appreciate the efforts or all of the Paoli Business Association members who worked so hard to make it a great and profitable evening.

I want to thank you and the Paoli Business and Professional Association for the wonderful honor that you bestowed on Sam last night at your awards dinner. The plaque is absolutely beautiful and I will be hanging it in our study here at home. Sam would have felt so honored by such an award but he also would have spent most of the evening after we returned home telling me about others who deserved it more. Being the proud, protective and loving wife, I’m not going to say that! I am not sure where all the shaking came from last night when I had to come up to the podium. It had to be all the sugar in the chocolate torte we had for dessert! I have spent a good part of my adult life speaking in front of groups and that was the first time I thought my knees were going to buckle….Thank you for your very kind words about Sam and also for allowing me to share some of my memories of Sam.

My thanks to you,
