President’s Message:
     The OFBPA would like to welcome our new members including Atlantic Landscapes, Clearsprings
Townhomes, Silpada Jewelry, The Arbor Sun Group and White Springs Crossings.
       The OFBPA is hosting the Parkville Carney Business & Professional Association and all businesses along
the Belair Road corridor. Invitations were mailed this week. Over 35 attended in September. Bring plenty of
business cards to share! Event will be held at Schnooner’s located at 7703 Belair Road (21236) on Wednesday,
October 15th from 5:00-6:30 pm. See website or newsletter for details. Everyone including OFBPA members must
RSVP so we can plan for food.

       The OFBPA is excited to be partnering with our                                  business associations and
chambers from around the county for a “Mega Networking Event” on November 12 from 4:30 -7:00 pm at the
Holiday Inn Cromwell. See website and newsletter for details. Space is limited for each association. We expect over
100 guests in attendance so bring plenty of business cards.

        Special thanks to Baltimore County Office of Economic Development and especially Lisa Allendar, our
Marketing Specialist for all her hard work on our behalf. The county is offering FREE meter parking dates again this
year and have extended the times to all for the best shopping dates. They are Thanksgiving Day (November 27)
through Sunday, November 30 and Sunday, December 14 through Sunday, December 21. We should get the meter
covers in November. I am asking the businesses in our main street area to help with placing them on and off the
meters. We welcome Barb Clapp and her team as our new marketing team working with Lisa on the ReDiscover
campaign. More on our new campaign launch dates for media and print in our November newsletter.
      Please log on for all events and for membership forms visit our website at. Donna at 410-
