Opening Season for Mini Golf

The weather is getting nicer and we helped families enjoy the outdoors. Kids of all ages received a free ticket on US for a game of miniature golf at the season opening of Putting Plus in Saugerties. 


Inspiration from Peace the Service Dog

Ulster Savings Bank is a proud supporter of The Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse and their continued advocacy for the vulnerable children of our community. A few years ago we helped sponsor a grant for the Center to purchase a service dog to comfort the young clients during stressful interviews with CPS. Peace is the facility’s 2 year old golden retriever and the children’s guardian angel. This year the South Road Poughkeepsie branch manager, Dennis Conn coordinated with Executive Director, Kimbery Haight to purchase stuffed animals for the children that would remind them of Peace and to serve as constant companions. Just like Peace, we are committed to the service and comfort of the children at The Center.


Mother's Day Flowers

On Saturday, May 8, we helped Red Hook VFW Post 7765 and Frank Vosburg of Kesicke Farm Cattle Inc. celebrate Mother's Day by giving away beautiful hanging flower baskets to several VFW post members, Auxiliary members and their families at Kesicke Farm Market in Red Hook.


Celebrating Cinco de Mayo

On Wednesday, May 5, we gave out FREE Guacamole Dip Appetizers to the first 50 customers who came to dine at Casa Vallarta after 4pm. Lake Katrine Branch Manager Karisa Finch and Casa Vallarta owner Sam Alegria are pictured at the establishment.



A Customer's Kindness Brightens Our Day

New Paltz customer John shows his kindness and appreciation to the staff at New Paltz by bringing them fresh flowers from his garden. He has been doing this since the start of the pandemic last year. John says the ladies brighten his day and he wanted to return the favor by brightening theirs.
