NEC member Eastern Bank recently donated $5,000 to Friends of the Wareham Veterans Council to help fund the construction of a memorial monument near the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne. The donation advances the Wareham Veterans Council’s efforts to raise $55,000 for the monument. The project includes a 15-foot monument that will sit beside the Otis Rotary honoring those who have served in our nation’s military.
Friends of the Wareham Veterans Council President Bob Powilatis said, “There is no kind of landmark out there for the cemetery. It’s a void that needs to be filled.”
The New England Council thanks Eastern Bank for their generous donation to Friends of the Wareham Veterans Council, and commends Eastern Bank for its continued commitment to supporting communities in the New England region. Read more in the Wareham Wicked Local.
