Edgartown, MA – Martha’s Vineyard Bank is proud to announce the beginning of its yearlong celebration to mark 110 years of banking excellence on both Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod. There are a host of exciting initiatives planned which will engage the community at large, from philanthropic activities to children’s competitions to investment and banking incentives. Martha’s Vineyard Bank will begin the New Year with a New Logo, which drops the word “savings” from its name to reflect the full service bank that it has become – which includes commercial banking and private banking, as well as trust and investment services. The tall ship’s full sails in the logo represent a look to the future as The Bank helps to propel its customers toward their financial goals. One such customer will be highlighted in the New Year, who has been identified as a descendent of the third-ever account that was opened with the Bank back circa 1909. The Bank will have some fun history and activities geared around this exciting part of its past. The Bank indeed values all of its customers and will have a Customer Appreciation Week Tuesday, February 19th through Saturday, February 23rd. Various activities will be going on and food and goodies will be on hand. Then in April, for the actual anniversary date, there will be a fun birthday party. There is a deep belief in maintaining a strong community within the Bank’s core values, and as such, there is a near-constant philanthropic outreach to the area’s non-profits. One such program is the Food Drive, going on all this month, for The Island Food Pantry and The Falmouth Service Center. Bank staff and customers may donate canned goods and pantry items during regular banking hours in all Martha’s Vineyard Bank lobbies, both on Martha’s Vineyard and in Falmouth, through the month of February – as March is the peak time for need. Children have been involved in The Bank’s savings program through their various Island and Cape schools since the 1950s, having introduced thousands of kids to the lifetime benefits of saving money. The Bank is pleased to announce a “Teach the Kids to Save Week” slated for later this year. Lastly, in conjunction with the Vineyard Gazette, we have compiled a timeline showing the Bank’s history on the Island. To view this timeline, please visit www.mvbank.com/110.
