Great article Joe on BBA and our Expo. There is also a write up on us in the Around Town publication. We have 4 new signs up around Bensalem and our next meeting will be with Fred Harran as guest speaker. Mr. Harran is responsible for the Police, Fire and EMTs in Bensalem. He is always a great source of information for all business owners. For more information go to www.BensalemBusiness.com
