PRLA Hosts Summer Luau For Its Members

Posted on July 23, 2013

PHILADELPHIA — The 95 degree heat did not stop members of the Philadelphia Regional Limousine Association (PRLA) from donning their Hawaiian shirts and heading deck side on the Delaware River for their meeting on July 17.


Members gathered at The Deck at Harbor Pointe in Essington to picnic staples of potato salad, roasted chicken and Philly favorite, pulled pork, while they networked watching the planes fly overhead from the nearby Philadelphia International Airport.

The business meeting included a call for all members to pay their dues as only 16 members were current. President Jim Salinger of Unique Limousine stressed the importance of being current since in the upcoming board elections only members who have paid will be able to vote. The meeting was opened to member nomination for the upcoming Sept. 11, 2013 election. The group discussed the frequency of meetings opting for 10 per year during the past monthly meetings. The PRLA will again host its annual Monte Carlo night on Dec. 11, 2013.

Board member Mike Barretto of Flyte Tyme Limousine updated the group on Philadelphia Airport operations. The most ticketed areas for transportation companies at the airport are in the cell phone lot where commercial vehicles are not permitted, and curbside pick up at the F terminal which is also a violation, Barretto said. He explained that the airport is making available curbside pick up for handicapped clients at the F Terminal starting soon. The PRLA will be working with the NLA to make the Philadelphia airport aware that they are in violation of the RIDE Act.  

Members traveled from Allentown, Harrisburg, York, and the Poconos as well as locally to attend this popular meeting.  The PRLA’s next meeting will be held on Sept. 11, 2013 at the Trevose Fire Hall.
