In a ceremony in Sacramento, Assemblymember Chris Holden honored Webster’s Community Pharmacy as “Small Business of the Year” for the 41st Assembly District. Webster’s owners Meredith and Michael Miller received the recognition during the Annual Small Business of Year Luncheon organized by the California Small Business Association.
“When it comes to a small business making a positive impact in the community, you couldn’t find anyone better than Webster’s Community Pharmacy,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden.
Webster’s employs 25 people, many of whom live in Altadena, and strives to support other businesses in the community such as local printers, graphic designers and even produce vendors. The award also recognizes Webster’s Pharmacy’s involvement in civic affairs and local organizations such as Altadena Heritage, the Altadena Historical Society, and Young and Healthy, as well as numerous non-profits and schools.
Nineteen small businesses from throughout the 41st Assembly District were nominated this year by the community. Past recipients of the recognition reviewed the nominations, provided feedback, rankings, and recommendations for the Assemblymember.
“Many businesses have opened and closed during my 36 years in Pasadena and Altadena but the true and sustaining constant in Altadena has always been Webster’s Community Pharmacy,” said Robin Salzer, owner of Robin’s BBQ and the 2016 Small Business of the Year recipient from Assemblymember Holden. “Webster’s has always given back to the community and the scholarship programs that they have offered speaks volumes of this commitment.”
