The Bellevue Business and Professional Association (BBPA) awarded its 2016 Citizen of the Year Award to Laura Mossakowski for her dedication to community involvement and her contributions to the development of the soon to be opened dog park in Bellevue. Pictured are Steve Mastalir presenting the award to Laura, along with her husband Pete.
This is the 30th year of BBPA presenting this award. BBPA was started in 1972. Initially it was an avenue for local business owners to gather, get to know one another, share concerns and keep up-to-date with new developments in the area.
Today it is their goal to keep the Village of Bellevue strong by encouraging members and the local community to use the services offered by BBPA members. By doing so, they help strengthen the profitability of members, the community and make Bellevue an attractive area for new business. BBPA is also responsible for the new publication Bellevue Beat.
