Bowater Credit Union member John Duggan has won $1,000 from Bowater Credit Union to his favorite non-profit: Charleston/Calhoun Hiwassee Historical Society.

“The CCHHS is located in the Bradley and McMinn county area, but it is for all citizens young and old to learn about the rich history in our area along the Hiwassee River,” wrote Duggan. The donation made will be used to help with the current sidewalk projects in Charleston and the new addition to the Charleston/Calhoun Hiwassee Historical Society’s building. To complete the building CCHHS will be raising an additional $50,000. If you would like to make your own donation to the Charleston/Calhoun Hiwassee Historical Society. you can contact them at HiwasseeRiverHeritageCenter@gmail.com

Any member of Bowater Credit Union can nominate their favorite non-profit for a $1,000 Pay It Forward prize. Four more prizes will be given out in 2018, and the deadline to be considered for the next prize is May 31,2018.
