Medway Co-operative Bank Bank Sponsors "Senior Social"

FIRST FRIDAYS WILL REMAIN FUN THANKS TO LOCAL BANK
March Even to Feature Discussion on Checking Credit History

Feb 23, 2005, Medway, MA—Medway Co-operative Bank is pleased to participate in a new community service program. “Senior Social”, a new monthly affair occurring every first Friday and featuring entertainment and social opportunities for local senior citizens, will be held at the Bank's 70 Main Street location. The next Senior Social is slated for Friday, March 3, from 10:30 to 11:30 A.M. The event is free and open to the public.

Medway Co-operative Bank has answered a need in the community. Last year, funding was cut from the budget of Medway Co-operative Bank's Senior Center. Hours of operation were reduced and the Center was forced to close on Fridays. In response, Medway Co-operative Bank agreed to host an event—just for senior citizens—at its facility on the first Friday of every month. Free coffee, tea and pastries will be provided. The Senior Social will be a source of enjoyment for the elder members of the local region.

“Community residents enjoyed meeting at the Senior Center, where they could gather with their peers and enjoy good conversation,” stated Missy Dziczek, Director, Medway Co-operative Bank Senior Center. “We were very concerned when our funding was reduced and our Friday programming was eliminated. Thank goodness our neighbor Medway Co-operative Bank offered their space and support to make more social events available to our seniors. We are very grateful, and I know our senior residents are as well.”

At the March Senior Social, Martha Whisner, VP Mortgage Loan Officer at Medway Co-operative Bank, will lead a discussion on the importance of checking one's credit history to protect against identity theft and posting of incorrect information. Attendees may come with questions, and expect to leave with valuable information on this timely subject.

“Medway Co-operative Bank remains as committed as ever to serving the community that we all call home,” confirmed Jack Hamilton, President & CEO of Medway Co-operative Bank. “We enjoy planning and participating in a wide variety of programs and initiatives that make the quality of life better for people of all ages, from youth sport and education programs to our Medway Co-operative Bank Club series of trips for adults. Stepping up to rescue the popular Senior Social was an obvious choice for us.”

Medway Co-operative Bank—with assets of $128 million—was founded in 1915, and continues to offer a wide range of individual and business banking services as the only purely mutual, solely local bank in the community. Medway Co-operative Bank continues to earn the highest rankings for financial strength from nationally recognized bank-rating companies including a Four-Star rating from Bauer Financial. Medway Co-operative Bank, a member of the FDIC and the SIF, is located at 70 Main Street in Medway MA.
