Local banks play softball for charity
Union National Bank and Carroll County Bank went head-to-head Oct. 3 in a charity softball game to benefit the United Way of Central Maryland. The event took place at Burns Field, next to the Carroll County Farm Museum.
Union National Bank's United Way committee members Debbie Weaver, Jennifer Starkey, Leigh McHargue, and Julie Frantz set two ambitious goals for this event: to increase employee awareness and participation via nontraditional activities and to increase employee contributions to the United Way by over 20 percent from last year's donations.
More than 25 people signed up to play softball and there were FTC cheerleading squads, bake sale volunteers and spectators. The first game was an 8-8 tie. Carroll County Bank won the second game, 20-10. Union National Bank announced that Steven L. Wantz, vice president of operations, has graduated from the Bank Administration Institute School at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a major in community bank management.
A Westminster native, Mr. Wantz joined Union National Bank in 1976 as a cashier where he moved up the management ranks to become vice president of operations.
