Spreading Kindness With Free Ice Cream

On August 28, ice cream at Stewart's Shop in Modena was on US. The store manager mentioned that the ice cream was a little slow and that the weather was probably a factor. Many customers were surprised to learn that their ice cream was on US. One gentleman commented that this is why he loves banking with Ulster Savings, and one woman stated that she would come to visit the branch this week. Pictured from left to right are: Celina Morgiewicz; Stephanie Gaspar; Stewarts employee, Jillian; Stewart Shop Manager, Corey Brainard; Branch Manage, Jared Cole; and, Branch Supervisor, Stephanie Walsh.
