Thank's Nancy!
Meredith Village Savings Bank and honorary member, Nancy Williams-Hunt continue to assist the Kiwanis Club by laminating our name badges. Nancy, your efforts are very much appreciated.

While at Meredith Village Savings Bank, Steve Loughlin discovered a familiar face in Kayne Kreitzer. As many will remember, Kayne was a long time member and secretary of the Laconia Key Club. In recent years, Kayne was a frequent guest at many of our weekly meetings. Today, Kayne is a part time teller at Meredith Village Savings Bank.
