Millbury Savings participates in Bicentennial legacy dedication.
Members of the Millbury Bicentennial Committee, along with state and town officials and local residents, recently dedicated a granite monument to permanently commemorate Millbury’s 200th anniversary celebration. The monument, which sits in front of the current town hall, is in the shape of the tower of the old town hall building. Prominently engraved on its face are a photo of a mill worker from Felter’s Mill and the names of Bicentennial Committee members and members of local government. Flanking it is a set of original iron gates from the old town hall site, which were recovered and recently restored.
Among those on hand at the dedication were Bicentennial Committee co-chairmen Roger Desrosiers and Bill Kane, as well as Bicentennial Finance Committee chairman and Millbury Savings Bank president and chief operating officer Robert J. Morton (see photo). Millbury Savings Bank contributed $30,000 as a platinum-level sponsor of the Millbury Bicentennial, which was celebrated from July 2012 to July 2013.
“We were fortunate to have had such generous sponsors, including Millbury Savings, which allowed us not only to have planned wonderful events, but to have the funds remaining to erect a more permanent marker of this important milestone,” said Roger.
Bill added, “It came out beautifully, and is the perfect commemoration of an anniversary celebration that was six years in the making.”
