Helping and Assisting Forever

During their 42 years of employment at The Oneida National Bank & Trust Company of Utica (now Bank of America), Ruth and Beatrice Begent, twins, associated with many customers, employees and friends.

“Our goal was always to be helpful and willing to assist others,” they say.

Thanks to a bequest through The Community Foundation these sisters will help and assist others in Oneida and Herkimer counties forever.

“We learned about the Legacy Society from our local newspaper, telling about the mission of The Community Foundation, and felt this was something we wanted to consider.”

The sisters encourage others to give back to their community in a big way, too.

“The Legacy Society has grown considerably, and we hope others will decide to become members as they make their estate plans.”
