The East Bridgewater Business Association was founded on June 23, 1993 “to promote a healthy business environment in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Its goals were to (1) provide a unified voice for business; (2) provide a forum for networking; (3) provide education about matters important to businesspersons; and (4) to provide appropriate support to community activities. The founding leaders were Ellen Scott Garvey, Bruce Marquis, Peter P. Spagone, and Irena Swartz.
The purpose of the Association was expanded in 2007, and most recently in 2010, to be: “To promote a healthy and ethical business environment in East Bridgewater and to provide services to assist its members including education, networking, and fellowship.”
At this time the Association boasts 111 members, the most in its history.
The East Bridgewater Business Association publishes a directory of its members each spring, a copy mailed to every household and business in East Bridgewater. Our other major program is the Business Expo & Family Fun Day, which has usually been held at the Town Common on the Saturday after Labor Day.
