Features Holiday Brunch & Tour of Elegant North Shore Estates

Nov 7, 2006, Medway, MA—Medway Co-operative Bank's Medway Co-operative Bank Club invites club members and others to ring in the holiday season with old fashioned VIP- style treatment. The popular touring program is back with a special progressive excursion to Essex on Sunday, December 3, 2006. The trip includes a sumptuous brunch and tours of two historic and beautifully decorated mansions, Turner Hill and Crane Estate at Castle Hill. The tour is open to Medway Co-operative Bank Club members and others.

This special event is the perfect way to kick off a most festive holiday season shared with friends or family. Once again, Medway Co-operative Bank Bank - through its highly popular Medway Co-operative Bank Club—demonstrates its innovative and ongoing commitment to the community it serves by designing a cultural event sure to appeal to all ages.

Brunch will be served in the members' lounge of Turner Hill, which adjoins a turn-of-the-century mansion that was built for the prominent Rice Family (more often than not they played host to a young George Patton!). The Elizabethan-style mansion is set among towering pines, formal gardens, rolling lawns and swan ponds.

The extensive holiday brunch in the private club at Turner Hill will consist of:

• Assorted Cakes, Pastries & Muffins and French Toast with Maple Syrup

• Eggs Benedict, Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Breakfast Sausage

• Carved Honey Baked Ham, Smoked Salmon with Assorted Bagels and Cream Cheese

• Seasonal Salads and Vegetables, and Fresh-Cut Fruit

Afterwards, move on to visit the lovely Crane Estate at Castle Hill, which stands overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Music, decorations, and a display of reproduction Schylling Christmas toys add to the holiday splendor of this magnificent 54-room mansion. Tour the rambling home, then sit back, relax and enjoy live music, carolers and hot baked cookies.

The all-inclusive price per adult is $73. Medway Co-operative Bank Club Premier Checking Account customers receive the special discounted price of $68. Adults may bring children or grandchildren, age 12 or under, for only $48 per person.
