MONSON, Mass. (WWLP) – Monson Savings Bank is celebrating 150 years of serving the local community. The bank was incorporated on March 28, 1872.
Monday morning’s reception kicked off a year of events focused on building the bank’s relationship with the community. They’ll work with local nonprofits to do things like help kids build their own bikes.
The bank’s CEO and COO told 22News that it’s important for them to be truly involved in the communities they serve.
“You know, it’s very easy to write a check and say thank you, but you have to make sure that you’re part of the fabric of the community, and in doing so, you have to be there in all types of situations,” said said Michael Rouette, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Monson Savings Bank.
“We have a passion for being independent, we want to control our own destiny, we love the communities we serve, being grown here in Monson, I want to bring that hometown feel to every community we serve,” said Daniel Moriarty, president and CEO of Monson Savings Bank.
Moriarty told 22News that one of his main goals for the coming year is to continue helping small businesses in the region grow and stay profitable.
