Wareham Selectmen recognize bank manager for community service

Dec 18, 2018

Selectmen honored Eastern Bank Manager Rose Berry with a certificate of recognition on Tuesday night in celebration of her service to the community of Wareham.

Berry will retire from her position at Eastern Bank on Dec. 31 after 12 years, leaving a legacy of volunteerism behind.

Berry previously served on Turning Point’s board of directors, helping the Wareham-based nonprofit to raise money for the homeless and near homeless in town.

She was also a member of the Wareham Village association and helped to organize several community events such as festivals and parades.

In 2017, Berry played a key role in helping the Wareham Veteran’s Council bring the Vietnam Moving Wall to the middle school. An estimated 40,000 visited Wareham to see replica of the famous war memorial over the course of four days.

Berry is also a member of the Tremont Nail Advisory Group, and will continue her work to help the rehab the history factory complex during her retirement.

“Rose truly exemplifies the meaning of the word community,” said Selectmen Peter Teitelbaum. “We can’t thank her enough for all she’s done.”
