Tri-town employees make group donation to TURF project

May 1, 2019

Old Rochester Regional High School’s field renovation project received a donation from Eastern Bank employee fundraising efforts.

Employees from the bank voted to give $2,500 to the Tri-Town Unified Recreational Foundation, Inc, (T.U.R.F.).

The project is looking to renovate ORR’s dilapidated track and main field and the auditorium sound and lights. The proposed renovation project will come before voters at Town Meetings in Marion and Mattapoisett on May 13 and in Rochester on May 20.

Eastern Bank’s Assistant Vice President Kathy TIbbetts said employees found it important to fund the project because of the number of children who use the fields.

“I think at some time in these kids’ lives they are going to touch these fields,” said Tibbetts, “So every child in those three towns is somehow going to benefit from these new fields.”
