PBA December 8th Annual Dinner & Officer Installation at Otium CellarsHighlights

On Thursday December 8, 2022 the Purcellville Business Association held their Annual Dinner & Officer Installation at Otium Cellars. Tonight’s theme GROWING STRONGER TOGETHER.

The members enjoyed socializing and getting caught up with one another, bidding on silent auction items donated by members, while sipping some delicious wine and enjoying some appetizers.

The meeting was opened by President Erin Rayner. Erin thanked the previous board and members who stepped up through Covid and all of the hard work and efforts they made to keep PBA going and helped it grow. Erin made a special President’s recognition to Jason Sengpiehl for stepping up this year with Communications and helping move PBA forward in a better light.
