Union Savings Bank in its continuing effort to support the local communities it serves, recently made a donation in the amount of $1,200 to the Litchfield Community Center to benefit the 11th Annual Bob & Peg Andrulis Memorial “Sweetheart” Run and Walk.
The event was a special fundraiser for the Community Center and has brought in over $75,000 to benefit their youth and family programming. Berta Andrulis Mette, Litchfield Community Center Executive Director, started the run in memory of her parents and along with a committee of volunteers and members of the local running and walking group, The Village Striders, plans and executes all aspects of race day. Runners and walkers of all ages participated in the event.
The Bank’s donation allowed the committee to enlist the services of a company that provided computerized timing results. “This service increases the integrity and attractiveness of the event to participants who value the competitiveness of a road race and appreciate proper timing results,” Andrulis Mette stated. “This would not be possible without Union Savings Bank,” she adds.
