Jewett City Savings Bank Helps Purchase New Chimes for Griswold

To help restore a 20-year tradition in the Town of Griswold, Jewett City Savings Bank donated $2,000 for the installation of a new chime system. The donation was made in collaboration with community residents who raised an additional $2,000 toward the purchase of the system.

Originally installed in 1995, the centrally located chime system is housed in the bell tower of the Jewett City Baptist Church. In November 2014, the chimes stopped working and Jewett City Savings Bank donated $250 to have the system shipped to Ohio for repairs. When the Town determined that purchasing a new system would be more cost-effective, Jewett City Savings Bank agreed to contribute half the cost of the new system provided that town residents were on board with the purchase. To raise the additional funds, the Jewett City Fire Department held a boot drive collecting donations from people and raised the additional $2,000.

The installation of the new chime system was completed the week of July 6th, with the official unveiling of the system on Monday, July 13th.

“Jewett City Savings Bank is pleased to do our part to help bring the chimes back to downtown Jewett City and to witness another great example of the local community coming together to support a proud tradition,” said Kevin Merchant, President and CEO of Jewett City Savings Bank.
