The Honesdale National Bank’s Board of Directors, Officers and Lakewood Office staff were joined by local civic, business and community representatives and other dignitaries on Wednesday, Nov. 14 for the Ribbon Cutting and dedication of their new Branch at 18 Como Road.
Commenting on the new office, HNB President and CEO William Schweighofer said, “We are very excited about this opportunity and look forward to expanding our footprint into Northern Wayne County. More important than the facility, however, is the quality staff who have joined the HNB family. We’re especially happy to welcome three local experienced bankers, who know the people and are dedicated to serving their financial needs.”
This is HNB’s 9th HNB full service branch and the bank began opening accounts for customers as soon as the approval was received from the Office of the Comptroller of Currency and plans are in place to install a Drive-Up ATM within the next few weeks.
The Honesdale National Bank, established in 1836, holds the distinction of being the area’s oldest independent community bank headquartered in Northeastern PA, with offices in Wayne, Pike, Susquehanna, Lackawanna and Luzerne Counties.
