Meredith Village Savings Bank to Sponsor Free Admission Days for History Teachers

Made possible by Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB), NH history teachers will have the opportunity to visit the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro at no charge on the following Sundays – August 8, September 19 and October 17. “This is a wonderful chance for us to honor the contributions of our state’s history teachers,” said Mike Culver, Executive Director of The Wright. Teachers may also bring one guest at no additional charge. “There is plenty to see and do here in Wolfeboro,” added Culver. “We hope teachers take advantage of this opportunity.”

Robyn Masteller, MVSB Regional Vice President, Branch & Business Development Manager, said Wright Museum’s initiative “to give back to teachers within our communities directly aligns with several of our core values.” “History teachers and the Wright Museum seem to be a perfect fit, and it offered us a unique opportunity to support the teachers who do so much for our children each day,” she explained.

According to Jami Bourdeau, MVSB Branch Services Manager, their sponsorship of the initiative reflects their belief in stewardship. “We aid the communities we serve in the forms of scholarships, grants and, in this case, sponsorships,” she said.

Expressing appreciation for MVSB’s “community vision,” Culver said the initiative underscores the importance of the subject of history. “Given world events, social unrest and an increased focus on celebrating our nation’s diversity, there may be no better place than The Wright to help provide perspective,” he said.

Free Admission Sundays take place on August 8, September 19 and October 17. Teachers are requested to bring some sort of identification that identifies them as teachers.

The region’s leading resource for educators and learners of all ages on World War II, the Wright Museum features more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the homefront and battlefield.
