Simsbury Bank is pleased to announce that it is the sole sponsor of the Bloomfield Arace Middle School’s Golf Team and program.  The program consists of a series of clinics, with students meeting twice a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays, for four weeks starting May 15th and four weeks in the Fall.  The students will be taught by Ciaran Carr, the Master PGA Professional at Wintonbury Hills Golf Course.  Students who show an interest in learning golf will be identified by the school. To help further their skills during the summer, the students will be granted passes to play for free at Wintonbury Hills Golf Club.


Stephen Vaughan, Vice President, Senior Relationship Management, said, “Youth activities that get kids outside and learning new skills are important and those that we at Simsbury Bank want to encourage.  The goals of the program also include teaching life skills such as honesty, integrity, respect, confidence, responsibility, sportsmanship, courtesy and judgement.”

“This is a very valuable program for numerous middles school youth and thanks to Simsbury Bank we will be able to continue to offer this program,” said David Melesko, Director of Leisure Services, Town of Bloomfield.  “Participating in this program will get them the skills they need so they can continue playing on the high school team and potentially even earn scholarships to college.”
