About the Acme Business Association
The Acme Business Association (ABA) was formed in January 2009 with its goals and intent unwavering. The vision as an association is to promote and protect the business community along with exploring innovative ways to promote the Acme area and its resources to better increase awareness of what the Acme area has to offer. ABA members are a well-organized, diverse group of business men and women dedicated to the entrepreneurial spirit and preservation of businesses in the Acme area.
As the ABA membership moves forward together as an association, thinking of business and citizens of this vibrant community, we support new developments and the doors they will open along with employment opportunities new developments will offer. As members of the ABA, we are sensitive to the balance between the needs of the community; the growth of the area; and the respect of our natural resources.
We invite involvement in our community events, fundraising efforts and social affairs and encourage the citizens of Acme Township to express ideas and concerns of and for this community. We challenge all citizens of Acme Township to seek out and understand the importance of this community to work in synergy with all identities to make Acme Township a great place to live, work, play, and visit.
There is a positive new era on the horizon for Acme TWP. The creation of economic opportunity has always been one of the cornerstones of the ABA and with it comes the potential for more jobs and a positive future for families in our community.
This Fall a newly elected TWP board will take office and we are looking forward to a broader agenda being addressed, one that recognizes the importance of local economics to our future.
Time waits for no one and Acme is no exception. Great things are afoot here! After years of expectations, Meijers will finally be joining our business community! This will include much needed changes to our infra-structure, better traffic control, improved water and sewer issues, and perhaps best of all great shopping right around the corner!
This summer has brought us another season of world class entertainment at Flintfields Horse shows by the Bay. This is truly a unique and outstanding partner within our ranks and one that will be fielding our ABA Fall Festival for the first time this year on their beautiful grounds at Acme Horse Park on Lautner Rd.
The ABA Fall Festival is now in it’s third year and has grown into a full fledged multi faceted venue with something for everyone. Music, food, crafts and cars, tractors and animals we’ve got a weekend of entertainment to be remembered!
ABA members have been more involved in community events this year than ever before and the effects of our networking are beginning to show. We have had a great response to our Golf Outing held on the beautiful course at Lochenheath, another ABA partner graciously making their facilities available to us. Have you had dinner at their clubhouse? Incredible dining , a 4 star experience!.
Acme TWP now has almost 800 acres of parkland within its borders, much of it with beaches on East Grand Traverse Bay and The ABA has graciously given donations to Acme TWP for the purchase of benches and park facility needs and look forward toincreased access with help from our partner the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy.
More than ever the presence of the ABA is having a positive effect on our community and the lives of the families that work and play here. Join Us!- for a Positive Future, Cheers!
