A brief history of the
Paul Kirchbaum, a former Director of ALOA, invited the locksmiths in and
around Youngstown, OH to meet with him in his shop to discuss the possibility
of forming a local locksmiths association.|
Through their efforts preliminary meetings were held that resulted in a meeting being held on September 24, 1964 to officially form the Association. From this meeting was laid the foundation for the locksmiths association to become known as the PENN-OHIO LOCKSMITHS ASSOCIATION, with membership extending across the border of the two states of Ohio and Pennsylvania. Paul Kirchbaum served as POLA's first president."
POLA holds meetings monthly , normally at the Ramada Inn, 4914 North Everhard Road, North Canton, OH on the second Sunday of each month at 1:00 p.m.
