Putnam Bank has donated $1,000 to The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) in support of its new Acorn Adventure Program for kids and their families to get outside and explore. With Putnam Bank’s support, TLGV’s Ranger Marcy leads monthly programs in search of tadpoles, trout, evening stars, and other natural wonders in the National Heritage Corridor.
The Putnam Bank Foundation has also increased its support for Walktober by awarding $3,000 to help promote more than 150 walks, paddles, and special events showcasing The Last Green Valley’s unique natural and cultural resources. Putnam Bank has supported Walktober since 2001 and has helped it grow from one “Walking Weekend” into the month-long celebration that Walktober has become today.
Putnam Bank is a community bank dedicated to providing superior products and exceptional customer service. Putnam Bank and the Putnam Bank Foundation work day-in and day-out to improve both the Bank and the communities they serve. “We are pleased to provide support to these programs that provide both health benefits and awareness of the beautiful surroundings in which we live and work”, commented Thomas A. Borner President and CEO of both Putnam Bank and its Foundation.
“We are grateful to Putnam Bank for supporting the ACORN Adventure Program, and to the Putnam Bank Foundation for their continued support of Walktober,” stated Lois Bruinooge, TLGV Executive Director. “Putnam Bank’s donations will help us care for, enjoy, and pass on The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor.”
