In 1990, Norway Savings Bank branch employees from Norway and South Paris formed the Hometown Friends Committee as a way to give back to the community. This year, the committee donated $2,900 to Christmas for Kids and Christmas for Teens. The programs, run by Rightstart, have been providing holiday gifts to children and teens in the Oxford Hills area since 1979. Through the years, Rightstart has seen a dramatic increase in need for holiday assistance; from 260 children in the early years of the program, to more than 600 children and teens today. From left are Mike Grass, assistant vice president market manager for Norway and South Paris; Jean Delamater and Connie Allen of Rightstart; Tricia Brooks, assistant vice president human resources compliance and benefits administrator; Amy Fox, senior loan servicing specialist; and Jessica Dow, payroll and human resources imformation specialist.
