EFWBA was created to give business owners a place to meet, to have a voice for the advancement, development and improvement of the infra-structure in East Fort Worth, to provide an atmosphere for businesses to interact and develop relationships for friendship, community and business.
Angela Baker is the EFWBA Treasurer. She is one of the first to greet you at our monthly meetings, working the check-in table. She is married with 3 children and 3 grandbabies. Angela has lived in Central Meadowbrook for 21 years. She graduated from Poly High School, and then attended Tarrant County College.
"I love to read mystery novels and I love going to the movies. I enjoy cheesy horror films, Marvel Movies and anything with Will Ferrell. For our Anniversary every year, my husband and I go to Las Vegas and spoil ourselves a little.(No gambling!) We love to get a big suite, enjoy good food at really nice restaurants and see the Cirque du Soleil shows. I have seen all the Cirque du Soleil shows. David Copperfield was amazing also!
I love giving back to my community and I volunteer quite a bit. I work with Habitat for Humanity, Academy 4 (tutoring 4th graders), and Salvation Army; this year we are collecting and donating stocking caps for the homeless.
I love to laugh and be around positive people. EFWBA has introduced me to so many wonderful people, and I have learned so much from each of them. I feel good about supporting the educational-based investments made by this organization."
EFWBA donated over $5,000 for library books for the elementary schools in the Eastern Hill HS pyramid.
Most of our member businesses are owned by native Fort Worth eastsiders who actively promote this area.
EFWBA helps bring new businesses and new construction development to East Fort Worth.
For 48 years, EFWBA has actively advocated for East Fort Worth.
We invite every business owner, professional person, firm, corporation or non-profit organization, to join us for our monthly meetings where you will meet other business owners, individuals and city officials that influence our lives.
The mission is still the same today for this long-lived organization. It was founded in 1974 as a 501(c)4 so that it could be involved in non-partisan political issues. Working with the neighborhoods and Fort Worth City Government offices for the betterment of East Fort Worth sometimes leads to involvement in the political arena.
I hope you join us at our next meeting.
Mike Shedd, President, 2022President@efwba.org
