TESTIMONIALS & THANKS
“The Green Thumb Garden Club of Somers Point is very pleased with the opportunities given to us through our membership in the Somers Point Business Association! Thank you for including us.”
Mary Sue Lovett, Green Thumb Garden Club Treasurer
“The Somers Point Business Association inspires and supports the entrepreneurial spirit. When I was considering opening my own law firm, I left each SPBA meeting feeling my career would be incomplete if I did experience the passion I saw in the small business owners at the SPBA. The SPBA embodies all that is good in the business world – creativity balanced with purpose, competition tempered by compassion, and work integrated with community. This organization educates on useful topics and encourages interactions that generate business and create friendships. I am very proud and grateful to be a part of it.”
Richard M. King, Richard King Law
“I’ve been a member of the Somers Point Business Association for a number of years. I’ve come to find SPBA as one of the most dynamic groups I belong to. In addition to the promotion of the City and its businesses, the Association does an outstanding job providing pertinent content and opportunities to network at its meetings. Somers Point is a small community but the SBPA does BIG things for its members.”
Bob McAllister, Comfort Now by Bob McAllister
“There is so much to say about how much the SPBA affects this great City of ours. The outstanding partnership between the City of Somers Point and the SPBA has in effect kept this City viable in these tough economic times that we have faced and will face in the future with the problems in Atlantic City, which affects us all. This partnership is a model for all of Atlantic County and New Jersey to follow as it allows for a total exchange of ideas and problems that we deal with trying to keep Somers Point as marketable as possible year round.
Recently when the national economy was in effect on a downward trend, farsighted people from the entire community banded together to form a common goal and that is to work in a collaborative effort for economic survival of this Town. We have taken this further as the economy improved it was felt that we cannot stop here and rest with the status quo we must plan and act for the future so that those who came after us have a base to build their hopes and dreams on. This is what you call my experience in working with the SPBA who are a group of business minded hard charging people who have the passion to do what’s best for this great little place we call Somers Point.”
Jack Glasser | Mayor
“The SPBA provided a direct route to get our brochures to local residents at Good Old Days.”
Rick, McAllister The Service Company
“Being a small business (art gallery) I rely on the opportunities that the SPBA offers me to partner and network with the larger business community to promote the business of bringing art to residents, visitors, second home owners, businesses and offices. My business allows artists to turn their commissions back into the community. Art is business too!”
Kathleen M. Arleth, Great Bay Art Gallery
“Having moved back to the area recently, SPBA has been a wonderful resource for me to meet like-minded professionals, and get involved with all the great events happening in Somers Point!”

On behalf of the Somers Point Arts Commission I extend my sincere thanks to you for your generous support of The Arts Reach Out; 2016 Program. We appreciate your recognition of the value of our comprehensive program to bring the arts to Somers Point residents as well as to tourists and visitors to our city. We share the idea that a strong arts presence in the city increases economic development, improves the quality of life and establishes a sense of place in our community.
Your spirit of giving speaks to your understanding of the Arts Commission’s purpose and to the significance that you place on The Arts Reach Out. The Commission will be diligent in recognizing the Somers Point Business Association in its 2016 publications and promotions.
