Bank receives mortgage foreclosure judgment against Vagabonds

A local bank has obtained two judgments totaling more than $85,000 after filing mortgage foreclosure complaints against the General Richard Butler Vagabonds Junior Drum and Bugle Corps.

The Butler County prothonotary’s office entered the default judgments for $85,180 on June 7 on behalf of NexTier Bank after the Vagabonds did not respond to the complaints, according to court records.

The complaints, filed in April, say the nonprofit Vagabonds borrowed $105,000 in September 2017 and $50,000 in August 2021, and used its facility at 138 Whitestown Road in Butler Township as security for payment of the notes.

As of mid-March, the Vagabonds owed $49,323 on the $105,000 note and $35,857 on the $50,000 note, according to the complaints. Both of the amounts owed include interest and late charges accrued through March 13.

The $49,323 judgment assess $7.38 a day in interest and the $35,857 judgment assesses $4 a day in interest beginning March 14.

The phone number listed for the Vagabonds Center is not in service and none of the officers who signed for the loans could be reached for comment. The bank declined to comment.
