The Sand Lake Business Association is a non-profit organization comprised of business people and community members that strive to promote and protect business within the Town of Sand Lake and the surrounding communities. The Association is committed to encouraging and promoting activities which benefit the residents of Sand Lake and the wider community that enjoys and patronizes our businesses.
We strive to:
- Increase awareness and traffic to local businesses.
- Foster a sense of community among our members.
- Promote a better business climate as well as promoting the Town of Sand Lake and the surrounding area as a desirable place to live, work and patronize.
- Build a stronger community by increasing business success, diversity and vitality and to represent the business community with local government.
- Raise public awareness of the business community’s contributions to the economic and social vitality of the Town
and surrounding areas.
- Hold monthly gatherings to network and socialize with fellow business people.
We invite all local and area businesses and their employees to join the Sand Lake Business Association. The more members we have, the more we can work together to improve the services and vitality of the Town and larger area.
In recent months, we were honored to be a part of the Memorial Day Service, presenting a wreath at the Veterans’ Park. We were invited to be the Grand Marshalls of the Kiwanis SummerFest Parade. And we are proud sponsors of the annual “Taste of Sand Lake” celebration of local restaurants in August at the beautiful Crooked Lake House held by the Sand Lake Center for the Arts. We hosted the annual Sand Lake Town Wide Garage Sale on September 13th and 14th.
On October 21st, a Tuesday evening, the business association will hold a “Meet and Greet”. It will be upstairs at the Lakeview in Averill Park. We welcome both current and potential members to join us for hors d’oeuvres. A highlight of this event will be guest speaker, Bob Pasinella of the Rensselaer County Office of Economic Development
