Downtown Painesville organization sets date for Founders’ Day breakfast – News-Herald
Downtown Painesville Organization invites the business community to its Founders’ Day Breakfast on April 30 in a celebration of the city’s past, present and future.
“We are thrilled to provide this opportunity for small businesses in the community to introduce themselves to each other and our organization,” said Nikki Matala, Executive Director of the DPO. “This program is a way to honor the founder of Painesville, General Edward Paine, who with a group of 66 early settlers came to the area in 1800 and made it his home.”
Breakfast is to be at 8 a.m. at the Lake County Historical Society, 415 Riverside Drive.
The guest speaker will be Tonya Busic, Programs and Events Manager for the Historical Society. She will be presenting on “The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous in Lake County”.
“(The) breakfast is not only an opportunity to enjoy Lake County’s magnificent historical society, but it’s also an opportunity to learn new information about Painesville’s early inhabitants and the how their contributions have changed the course of history,” Matala said.
DPO says all are welcome, but reservations must be made by sending a check for $25 per person to the Downtown Painesville organization, 47 South State St., Suite 203, Painesville, OH 44077; or by contacting Ron Robertson at Flowers on Main at 440-350-0200.
Matala said the DPO is delighted to host this event and hopes that everyone who attends will be able to build new relationships for the benefit of the community.
