Welcome to the Kingston Business Association
2019 College Scholarship Recipients:
Amber Whittemore and Michael Howard. Amber and Michael were awarded $500 each.
If you know a senior who is graduating from Silver Lake High School or Sacred Heart High School and they live in Kingston please be sure to tell them about the KBA scholarship. The KBA will be awarding two $500 scholarships to two students who plan to pursue a career in business. Applications are at the Guidance Office for both schools. Please send your completed application to Info@KingstonBusinessAssociation.org (this is a new e-mail address).
Thank you to all who attended our annual Christmas Tree lighting even as we honored Paul Tura.
In 2018 the KBA honored “Kingstonian” Paul Tura. Paul was the (46 yr) loving husband of Jean Tura and father of Chris & Michael. Paul served our community on the Kingston Fire Department for 44 years, Board of Health for 17 years and active Scout Leader for over 20 years, mentoring many youth, including his sons Chris and Michael to Eagle Scout. Paul and his family were active members of the Kingston Lions, Yacht Clubs and Kingston Business Association(s). He and his sons were 4th Degree members of the Kingston Knights of Columbus supporting charity locally, regionally and nationally. His unselfish passion and commitment to making Kingston, “our town,” a special place to live is something
Thanks to the first ever Waterfront Festival 5k road race the KBA was able to raise $2,600.00 that was donated to the Silver Lake music department. The check was presented at the December, 2018 winter concert. The money will be used to add additional and much needed lighting to the auditorium.
