Happy Independence Day! 

PBA Business of the Month                                 
Beyond Hardware True Value
2155 Penfield Road, Penfield
(585) 377-5540

Jim and Matt are the two local buys behind Beyond Hardware True Value. After being childhood friends, both left the area to start their careers elsewhere. Matt received his MBA from Columbia University, and got started in the retail hardware industry. Jim built a business in the biotech industry where he focused on sales and customer service.

They both returned to their hometown and started Beyond Hardware True Value in April of 2009. Their goal was to create a unique and totally modern hardware shopping experience that combines service, selection and convenience. (more)

Thursday, July 12

Schaufelberger Park, Four Corners

The Town of Penfield will formally dedicated the statue of its founder, Daniel Penfield on July 12. All are welcome to attend.

The installation features Daniel Penfield standing alongside a granite millstone as a symbol of the milling industry and settlement he fostered along the waterfalls of Irondequoit Creek. The burgeoning community was ultimately established as the Town of Penfield in 1810.

The town's Bicentennial Committee commissioned sculptor Don Sottile to create the larger-than-life bronze sculpture as part of Penfield's bicentennial celebration in 2010. Sottile is a well-regarded regional artist known for his public works including two famous sculptures of
Abraham Lincoln.

PBA Event Reservation Payment Notice

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your incredible support in attending our events! We appreciate your enthusiasm and participation in our workshops, networking and community events.


In the past, the PBA has absorbed any expense for members who registered for events but were unable to attend for various reasons. Unfortunately the cost for holding events has increased and it has become necessary for us to change this practice. Going forward, the PBA will need to charge you for any reservation you are unable to fulfill unless we receive a cancellation notice 48 hours prior to the event. We are sensitive to the fact that last minute schedule challenge occur and we encourage you to send a substitute in your place if you find yourself unable to attend.


For all PBA meetings requiring reservations and a meeting fee, we have always extended a "pay at the door" option to our members and guests and will continue to do so.Recently, we added the option to pay by credit/debit card via PayPal on the PBA website. This option will continue to be available as well.


Again, thank you for your tremendous support! We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
