Compass House One Year Anniversary
MVSB Donates $5,000 on Behalf of Carol Bickford
When Carol Bickford recently retired from New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp after 37 years of dedicated service, most recently as the Senior Vice President and Retail Lending Officer, the Board of Directors for Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) opted to honor the valued employee with a donation of five thousand dollars to the nonprofit of her choice. We are honored that she selected LRCD.
“We are so grateful to Carol and the Board of MVSB for this donation,” said Carmen Lorentz, Executive Director of LRCD. “Carol has been an amazing advocate and partner for many years, helping us to create affordable housing, provide transitional housing and supports for homeless families, develop new types of real estate to respond to local community needs, and empower families to succeed.”
Congratulations on your retirement, Carol!

Green Tip - Don't Idle
Did you know it only takes 30 seconds to warm up your engine when driving in the winter? In modern fuel injected engines, you need no more than 30 seconds of idling on cold winter days before driving away. This is much better for the environment than letting your car sit idling for long periods of time.
