RHBA Business Meeting
Our main event, the business meeting is the first Wednesday of each month we meet at the Raleigh Hills New Seasons Market for our regular business meeting which is open to the public. We do a little networking, welcome visitors and enjoy a presentation by a local business. The meeting starts at 7am and is usually over by 8am, giving everyone a chance to make it to work on time. Having a well-established network has become an important part of our business lives. The easiest way to expand your network is to build on the relationships with people you know.

Annual Holiday Party
Each year our December business meeting is held in the evening rather than the morning and we call it the Holiday Party. No speaker at this meeting but we all gather to bring stocking stuffers for the "Christmas Holiday" for the Sunshine Pantry. Mary Sherman of Sherman Family Properties, usually spearheads this event. Providing for hundreds of items in as many stockings as can be found with non perishable items such as toiletries, warmers, gloves and more. One of the ways RHBA makes a difference in our community
Back Pack Program
Millions of children receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program and the National School Breakfast Program. For many, school meals may be the only meals they eat. What happens when they go home over the weekend? In cooperation with Washington County Sheriff's department and New Seasons Market, Raleigh Hills Business Associations and it's members help support the local Back Pack Program. More...
Shop With A Cop
This event helps foster positive relationships between youth and officers. Kids, K - 6th grade are selected each holiday season to shop at the local K-Mart for gifts for their immediate family. Each child is given a small amount of money to spend, approximately 1-2 children are assigned to each police person, who then escorts them around the store and assists in selecting appropriate gifts. After shopping, the children will eat lunch, wrap their gifts, and continue to get to know the police officers. Lee Blevins is the point person for Raleigh Hills Business Association and has been active in this event for years.
Thanks to the efforts of member Diane Snedecor of Mountain Man Nut and Fruit, each year we shred about 2 tons of documents protecting the identity of countless citizens in the Raleigh Hills area. The event has grown from a simple shred event truck to recycling of batteries with Interstate All Battery, electronics by EcoBinary, printer cartridges with Cartridge Network and furniture through Community Warehouse. Another RHBA service to promote a vibrant business environment in the Raleigh Hills area.
We play together, we work together and we give back to the community together. It may be our first Wednesday business meeting, our third Wednesday luncheon meeting, a community event for kids or a business open house RHBA is there.
Join Us in our efforts to support the community of Raleigh Hills, by promoting a vibrant business environment, maintaining a safe and healthy business climate, creating community consciousness and maximizing livability.
