by providing scholarships to students who meet the criterias set by the scholarship committee.
The association formally know as Tewksbury Business Association (TBA) generates the scholarship fund through a fundraisers and support of local merchants.
The 2011 fundraiser was in form of April 2011 calendars that were sold for $10 each and allowed the purchaser to participate in daily drawing of prizes ranging from Gift Certificates
from local vendors to Amazon Kindle. The fundraiser was a great success, the BNBA
members purchased enough calendars to generate more than $1300.00 in funds that will be
awarded in two scholarships this year.
" Our Members really step up to the plate, they showed strong support of this event and our scholarship committee helped generate the buzz needed to make this fundraiser a great success. It was a lot of work for all of us at the BNBA but was worth every minute of it. We are helping two local High School seniors secure college funds and ease the tuition burden on their parents" said Hanson Bechat Chairman of the association.
The Scholarship committee was formed by:
Hanson Bechat Of Neighborhood Parcel
Caroline McAllister of Dick Insurance.
Tricia Edris of Mary Kay

have bigger impact on the society and will continue to focus on helping its members.
