Medway Co-operative Bank Bank is 90 Years Young

Celebration Marks Milestone for Community Landmark
Family Fest Features Music, Refreshments, and “Ol' Blue Eyes”

Sep 8, 2005, Medway, MA—Where has the time gone? A 90th birthday bash is planned for Medway Co-operative Bank. Friends and neighbors of the landmark financial institution are invited to celebrate on Saturday, September 17th, from 2 to 6PM at the Bank on Main Street in Medway . The festivities are free and open to the public.

“I Did It Medway Co-operative Bank,” the message conveyed by so many long-time and more recent Bank clients, sets the tone for marking this milestone achievement. Guests will enjoy tasty food and beverages while dancing the day away to Steve Smith & the Nakeds, the nation's premier Rhythm and Blues band.

Highlighting the bash is a special appearance by “Ol' Blue Eyes” himself. Singing some of his classic standards, such as “I Did It My Way,” partygoers will surely enjoy his performance, and may even be photographed with the one and only “Frankie” (aka George Lyons of Malden MA).

This anniversary celebration is a rain-or-shine event guaranteed to be fun for the whole family, held under a giant white tent on the Bank grounds. All ages are welcome to the Saturday afternoon affair, commemorating the Bank's investment in and commitment to the Medway Co-operative Bank community.

“What an anniversary year this has been for us," confirmed Jack Hamilton, President & CEO of Medway Co-operative Bank. “So much to celebrate, thanks to the ongoing support of our friends and neighbors, all those individuals, families and businesses we have come to know so well. We're throwing a birthday party as a 'thank you,' and hope to see everyone join in the fun.”

Medway Co-operative Bank—with assets of $125 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.
