In recognition of Veterans Day, we are pleased to again support local organizations that provide services and support to our veterans. During the month of November, Enterprise Bank will recognize a number of these organizations throughout our service area.
Each of our service regions has partnered with a veterans organization designated for that region. Branch teams will be volunteering their time or making donations to the designated organization.
We recognize and thank the following organizations for the work they do to provide support and services to our veterans.
The American Legion, Wilbur Tarbell Post 109, Windham, NH
The Wilbur E. Tarbell Post #109 has been welcoming veterans from all branches of our Armed Forces since being chartered in 1951. The Post sponsors Scholarships for our children and gives aid and assistance to our local needy veterans, and their families. Post #109 is in the process of renovating their building at 21 Haverhill Road, which had been vacant for many years. The plan is for the building to be a usable space for meetings and community functions.
