CONCORD —  When Carol Bickford recently retired from New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp after 37 years, most recently as senior vice president and retail lending officer, the board of directors for Meredith Village Savings Bank honored her with a donation of $5,000 to the nonprofit of her choice. Bickford selected Lakes Region Community Developers.

“Carol’s work made a significant difference for MVSB, our customers and our community,” said Moe Lafreniere, chair of the board for MVSB. “I’m not surprised by her choice of organization to support. LRCD does great work throughout the Lakes Region to make sure everyone has a healthy home. Because of her decades of work in helping people purchase homes, Carol appreciates the joy and confidence that comes with having a healthy and stable place to live."

“We are so grateful to Carol and the board of MVSB for this donation,” said Carmen Lorentz, executive director of LRCD. “Carol has been an amazing advocate and partner for many years."
