Bank of the West gives to museum
Bank of the West branch manager Shirley Pelz (third from right) handed a $1,500 check to Lois Nehring, treasurer of the Paynesville Area Historical Society last week at the local history museum. In a fundraising campaign aimed at retiring the museum debt and to prepare for the community sesquicentennial, over $20,000 has been raised so far this year, including the donation by Bank of the West, which will enable the historical society to collect $10,000 in matching pledges from two local donors. |
Pictured, from left, are historical society board members Paul Bugbee, Rosemary Koshiol, Ellsworth Schultz, Bertha Zniewski, Larry Madden, Nehring, Ralph Fleischhacker, Pelz, Tim Zniewski, and Vicki Jenniges, both a board member and from Bank of the West. Not pictured are board members Jack Bugbee, Tom Haines, and Mike Jacobson.
The overall goal of their fund drive is to raise $42,000, said Paul Bugbee, and the Bank of the West donation will kick off the business campaign.
