On Friday, November 9, 2018, TABCO members and guests gathered to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the founding
of TABCO as well as the “grand opening” of TABCO’s new offices at 1220 C East Joppa Road. Planning for this event
began over a year ago. TABCO-Retired members Angela Leitzer and Roxann Russo were appointed as co-chairpersons to
lead the committee, which included retired members Jane Sacks, Barbara Tyler and Mary Ellen Vecchioni, as well as
President Abby Beytin, Executive Director Glen Galante and Vice President Marcie Cooke.
In anticipation of the celebration, two original volumes of TABCO minutes dated 1918 to 1947 were rescued from their
tattered condition to be rebound and recovered. Many other historical documents, including photographs and a copy of the
1947 “handbook” containing the four-page TABCO Constitution and Bylaws were discovered and utilized in a historical
display located in the reception area at the new office.
