Brattleboro Savings & Loan celebrates Community Appreciation Day

BRATTLEBORO — Brattleboro Savings & Loan (BS&L) will celebrate its annual Community Appreciation Day on Friday, Aug. 25, at the Main Street branch in Brattleboro, and on Thursday, Aug. 31, at the Wilmington branch.

Starting at 11 a.m. and going until around 2 p.m., BS&L will serve free hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, summer slaw, and other cookout standards on the front lawn of the Main Street branch. On Aug. 31, they'll offer Vermont Gelato at the Wilmington branch from 2 to 4 p.m.

BS&L President Deb Stephenson said in a news release these events are opportunities for the bank and their employees "to connect in a very simple and human way with the people in our community - by breaking bread together."

To help BS&L celebrate, WTSA will be doing a live broadcast from Main Street. Local vendors contributing to these community events include Hannaford, River Valley Market, Leader Distribution, Gouger's Market, Cota & Cota, DBC Rentals, and Vermont Gelato. Any leftovers will go right to the folks at Brigid's Kitchen and Groundworks Collaborative to further give back to the community. All are invited to join the bank personnel in celebrating their communities.

While these are offered as free events, BS&L welcomes donations that are added to the funds they have established to create their Commitment to Community scholarship. This scholarship is offered to local high school seniors at Leland & Gray, Twin Valley, and Brattleboro Union high schools who are involved in making the community better and brighter.
