The first step in building an inclusive community? Engaging employees to help craft the cultural journey ahead. That’s where Community Bank started in 2021, and the path that followed was nothing short of exciting. Watch as Freddie Jacobs, Jr., CPA, and Maureen Gillan-Myer discuss our growing program and the priorities it has for the future.
Military Family Month is recognized every November as a time to reflect on the sacrifices made and challenges faced by our military families. Officially established in 1996, every November is declared Military Family Month by the President to recognize and appreciate the great cost felt by military members as they leave their families to serve their country. To support Community Bank’s military families, our Walton, NY branch created a Wall of Honor using photos of loved ones who have served or are currently serving in the military. Thank you to all military families for your tremendous sacrifice.
November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month (NEAM), which is a time set to raise awareness of and advocate for the causes and symptoms of epilepsy. This year’s theme, set by the Epilepsy Foundation, is “There is no NEAM without ME,” to emphasize the impact community support has on amplifying epilepsy awareness. There are several ways to support NEAM this November, including wearing purple throughout the month, supporting and highlighting those with epilepsy in your community, and donating to epilepsy organizations like the Epilepsy Foundation.
Community Bank is proud to have sponsored the Buddy Walk in Brattleboro, VT, once again to raise awareness and encourage acceptance of Down syndrome. Proceeds from this year’s walk went to Special Olympics of Vermont for Windham County. The Buddy Walk is not exclusive to Brattleboro—there are Buddy Walks all over the world.
