Patricia Weigel, President and CEO of Norway Savings Bank (NSB) visited Riding To The Top Therapeutic Riding Center (RTT) earlier this week and spent some time with the incredible horses that do so much for the clients of RTT. Weigel was at the center to present a check for $5000 to support RTT’s equine assisted activities and therapies.
“Every time I visit, I am inspired by the incredible horses and the stories I hear about the connections they form with RTT’s clients - some as young as three years of age!” She added that Norway has supported RTT for 17 years because “Services like RTT’s are important to the health and well-being of Mainers. Norway Savings Bank’s contributions also include hundreds of volunteer hours contributed by local employees who work on projects and fundraising events.” Sarah Bronson, RTT Executive Director said, “Contributions from local businesses like Norway Savings Bank allow us to deliver services 6 days a week, year-round, keeping an important resource available year round to over 250 people with disabilities.”
Since 2005, Norway Savings Bank has contributed over $128,000 to Riding To The Top. Bronson added “RTT was founded by passionate volunteers, our Windham center was funded by individuals and businesses including Norway Savings Bank - and we thrive because of our strong community
