Who are we?

We are your neighbors. Our kids go to school with your kids, we attend the same church as you do, we are in the stands rooting alongside you at high school football games, we vote at the same polling place, and we stand in the same grocery store checkout line....We are your community's local business men and women. If you need a product or service that we offer, please give us a shot at your business. Strong communities require a healthy business base -- and businesses need strong local communities. So please, shop local when you can.


Our Mission:

The purpose of the Newberry Business Association is to bind the business interests of Newberry Township, York County, Pennsylvania in a spirit of cooperation, fraternity, and good will; to promote honesty and integrity in business; to assist and provide for local charitable and educational institutions; and for advancing, coordinating, promoting, and unifying the civic, commercial, economic and industrial interests of the Newberry Township area, its adjacent trading and business areas and the people residing therein.


History

In 1985, a group of the more progressive business people in the community got together for the original purpose of helping to raise funds for a new building and related facilities being built by the Newberry Township Fire Company. Through local business pledges, a successful effort in the fund raising was achieved. It was decided that there was a need for such an organization in our community, and a formal organization was formed in March of 1986. Original membership was 12 businesses.
