What is an EMV Chip Card?

EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa- the developers of the microchip embedded in the card that stores and protects your card data. EMV Chip cards do everything your current magnetic strip cards do – but, more securely. The computer chip embedded in the card enables more secure processing by producing a one-time use code for each transaction.

Be on the lookout for updates on when you can expect to receive your new Sawyer Savings Bank EMV chip debit card.

Sawyer Savings supports Saugerties Boys and Girls Club

Sawyer Savings Bank is pleased to be able to continue to support the Boys and Girls Club of Saugerties in 2016. The Saugerties Unit is made up of three individual programs spread across the Saugerties area. Each program offers a rewarding youth development opportunity for the kids and a convenience of location for families.

Main Unit: Saugerties Main Unit has been welcoming youths since it opened its doors in April of 2006. Located in the Village of Saugerties, this traditional Boys & Girls Club drop-in program services youths between the ages of 6 to 18 years of age with specialized programming opportunities. This Club offers a full sized Gymnasium, Art Room, Educational Learning Center, Kitchen, Games Room and dedicated Teen Room.

Riccardi & Morse Extension Programs: These elementary aged extension programs, located within the local elementary schools, offer families the security of immediate supervision and programing opportunities as soon as the last school bell rings. Staffed with dedicated professionals, these New York Licensed Childcare Programs run during the school year, following the school calendar, and offer programs that include educational support, arts and recreational activities.
