The 4 Tenets of the LBBA
Community • Business • Philanthropy • Social
LBBA is all about building the local community in the Langhorne Borough and surrounding areas.
We help promote local business. Any business that operates here, whether it is professional, retail, restaurant or service based.
Many of our activities raise funds to support philanthropy for the local food pantry, annual adopt-a-family programs, and our annual scholarship(s) to a Neshaminy High School graduate going to a county or PA state college in honor of Clayton Thomas, a long-time business owner, resident of the borough and a founding member of the LBBA.
We come together each meeting and have the opportunity to be social while we offer ideas and support that will foster growth in the Langhorne community. (Many members continue the meeting at the Langhorne Hotel afterwards.)
