On Wednesday (Waldo’s favorite day of the week) August 26, 1964, it was noted in the minutes of the Southwest Business Association that the organization should change their name to “Waldo Business Association,” as it “most nearly meets the needs” of the organization. The entire motion is included below. Therefore, on August 26th, we celebrate our birthday officially as the Waldo Area Business Association!
Thank you to all of the pioneers who have championed our District and Association for over five decades. The Waldo Area Business Association “respects yesterday, promises tomorrow” and forever will be the “home of the friendly merchants.”
