A Letter from the President, Ed Probst

Dear Bayside Business Association Members,


As we near the end of another successful year, I am delighted to extend my warmest holiday greetings to each and every one of you. The Bayside Business Association continues to thrive, thanks to your unwavering support and active involvement.


I am thrilled to recap the remarkable achievements we’ve accomplished together in the past few months. Our networking breakfast held in early November was a great success, with an informative presentation from Joe Forgione, Vice President Controller, Bay Terrace Project Lead, Cord Meyer Development Company. We look forward to seeing the improvements he mentioned coming to fruition. The engagement and collaboration during this event were truly inspiring, highlighting the strength of our BBA community and the shared commitment to fostering growth and prosperity among our businesses.


Moreover, our Small Business Saturday campaign gained quite a bit of traction this year, showcasing the vibrant tapestry of our local enterprises. The impressive turnout and engagement from both businesses and patrons reinforced the significance of supporting our local economy, and I’m thrilled to announce that this year’s participation exceeded our expectations.


We collected numerous nominations for the esteemed BBA’s Best of Bayside Contest and have been tallying all the nominations. We’re excited to reveal the finalists soon. Voting for the deserving finalists will commence in December, offering us all the opportunity to celebrate and recognize the outstanding contributions of our peers within the Bayside community.


Your continued dedication and commitment to the Bayside Business Association have been the driving force behind our accomplishments this year. As we enter into the festive season, I, along with the entire Board of Directors, would like to express our sincerest gratitude for your steadfast support. Your involvement has been instrumental in our progress, and we eagerly anticipate further growth and expansion in 2024.


May this holiday season bring you joy, peace, and prosperity. On behalf of the BBA, I extend heartfelt wishes for a happy holiday season to you and your loved ones.



Ed Probst

President, Bayside Business Association

We regret to inform you that the eagerly awaited BBA Holiday Kickoff Party has been postponed. Due to a delay in registrations, we made the difficult decision to reschedule the festivities for January. We sincerely apologize to all those who were looking forward to joining us.


Please stay tuned for the announcement of the new date. Your enthusiasm and support mean the world to us.


Your participation in our events is a key factor in your desire to increase your business and make stronger connections with fellow Bayside business leaders and the community.


Thank you for being part of our vibrant Bayside community and for your ongoing support of the BBA. Let’s make our upcoming event in January one to remember!
