About Us

Giving back to the community ...

In which we live and do business is a very important aspect of the Hadley Business
Association. The H.B.A. was founded in 1999 by concerned business owners striving
to sustain the local economy and to create an awareness of the area’s natural resources.
We are a local, non-profit organization of volunteers and community business owners
encouraging folks to support local shops and attractions in the greaterHadley / Lake
Luzerne area.

The Hadley Business Association is a membership volunteer organization. The
dedicated and devoted volunteers bring the Maple in April Festival, the Community Garage Sales, the Holiday on the Hudson Lighting Event to town for ALL to enjoy.
