Richard "Dick" Pitman has been a major player in the banking industry in Skaneateles for the past 38 years. First, at the Skaneateles Savings Bank, and then he has managed the Skaneateles branch of M&T Bank for the past 13 years.
The public is invited to attend the retirement party at the Sherwood Inn on Saturday, Jan. 15. Cocktails and appetizers begin at 5:30 p.m. (cash bar), with a 6:30 p.m. dinner to follow featuring a roast beef and roast turkey carving station, Caesar salad and pasta primavera. Dessert and coffee will accompany a "short roast" of the guest of honor, Dick Pitman, so bring along your best stories.
Pitman volunteered in many capacities in the community, including the President of the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce, the Mottville Fire Commissioner and several town board committees.
Pitman said he is looking forward to retirement in order to spend more time with family, on the lake and to travel.
