About Us


     Giving back to the communities 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 create an awareness of the area’s natural resources. We are a local non-profit organization of volunteers and community business owners striving to encourage folks to support local shops and attractions in the greater Hadley / Lake Luzerne. 

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

Encouraging Future Entrepreneurs . . . 

The Maple in April Festival began in 2002 as a fund raiser for the H.B.A. Scholarship Fund as we give two scholarships each year to graduating students of the Hadley-Luzerne School District. To date we have given over $8,000 to students furthering their education in business or the Arts.
