WATERTOWN, December, 2013--Watertown Savings Bank (WSB) has donated $5,000 to the Watertown Rotary Club. The bank presented the donation at WSB’s annual Club 50 holiday party, on behalf of the more than 3,500 Club 50 members. Recently retired Club 50 Coordinator and Watertown Rotarian Joan Galgay was asked by WSB President Brett Dean, which organization would she like to see receive the $5,000 this year.
“It was an easy decision to choose the Watertown Rotary Club as they do so much for so many different groups in town,” Galgay said.
The Watertown Rotary Club began in January, 1925. There are currently 56 members. As a service organization, they support many other charitable organizations. Here in Watertown, the Club is known for its annual $10,000 in scholarships to Watertown High School students; the fall Senior Cookout, where they serve lunch to more than 300 senior citizens; providing 10 needy families with groceries each Thanksgiving; participation in Watertown’s Faire on the Square each year, serving free hot dogs and soft drinks.Club 50 is a special program for bank customers age 50 and older who meet a qualifying balance. The Club provides discounts, social gatherings and unique travel opportunities. For more information, or to enroll in the bank’s Club 50 program, please contact their office at 617-928-2338.
