MVSB (Meredith Village Savings Bank) is proud to continue its support of Squam Lakes Natural Science Center by providing a $5,000 sponsorship for its recent 2023 Family Picnic fundraising event that took place in July. MVSB also sponsored the Center’s Volunteer Appreciation Dinner.
“The sold-out picnic event featured live music, animal programs, food trucks, games and more – all in a beautiful scenic setting,” said Iain MacLeod, Squam Lakes Natural Science Center Executive Director. “We are grateful for all the community support we have received this year. We encourage everyone to follow us on social media to stay up to date for future events.”
“The Science Center is near and dear to my heart and I am thrilled that MVSB is always seeking ways to support this wonderful organization that brings so much joy and benefit to the local communities,” said Jill White, MVSB Regional Vice President in Ashland. “We hope everyone gets a chance to experience everything the Science Center has to offer.”
In addition to hosting several events this year, the Center also recently welcomed two new mountain lion cubs and a black bear cub as part of their animal exhibit trail. Go to nhnature.org to learn more.
