Peoples State Bank Surprises Never Forgotten Honor Flight with $1,500 Donation

Wausau, Wis. (November 10, 2017) In honor of Veterans Day, Peoples State Bank asked representatives from the Never Forgotten Honor Flight to visit the bank on Friday to receive a free patriotic hat Peoples was handing out to veterans, and to take a few photos to help support their cause. Little did the Honor Flight know that the bank was also planning a surprise.

“We wanted to do something special for veterans to honor them, to support the Never Forgotten Honor Flight at the same time, and surprise them in a way that would make them remember that others appreciate what they do,” said Scott Cattanach, President and CFO at Peoples State Bank.

As Mike Thompson and Jim Campbell of the Never Forgotten Honor Flight Board of Directors arrived at the bank at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, they were given complimentary hats from Peoples and asked to pose for a picture. Meanwhile, a crowd of employees swooped in, led by Cattanach and holding a large check donation of $1,500. Peoples employees and veterans Dawn Abreu and Dennis “Buzz” Rosenau, who had just returned from his own Honor Flight this October, were holding the check donation.

 

“What a surprise; we thought we were just coming in for hats!” said Thompson. “This donation will help send three more veterans on the Honor Flight, and it is truly appreciated.”

“Veterans deserve our respect and appreciation. Along with the Military Care Package drive that we are currently doing, this donation is just a small token of our appreciation,” said Cattanach. “Our bank and employees are committed to helping our community prosper—and supporting our veterans is part of that commitment,” he said.
