April is community banking month, a time when we traditionally celebrate what we believe makes our bank unique - our community focused approach and personalized experience. During more normal times, you would see our team out at volunteer events, serving on boards, and joining in at community events. This is what makes working with a local bank so unique – your banking partners are right here in the community alongside you as you go about your day. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our ability to do what we love has changed. We are all learning new ways for us to stay connected. But we remain focused on what matters most to us – the health and welfare of the communities that we are proud to be a part of.
We know the COVID-19 pandemic has affected each of us in various ways. A lot of people are struggling in our communities and we, as a team, are doing what we can to help get our customers through these trying financial times. But many hands make light work and we are in this together. Please consider the following suggestions to help our community through this time.

The sun's out, temperatures are rising, and the Hudson Valley is looking beautiful! To celebrate the beginning of summer, we brought Food Truck Friday back after a successful launch last fall. This past June, our Putnam Valley, Brewster, and LaGrange branches hosted free Food Truck Fridays as a thank you to lour customers, employees, community neighbors, and friends.
Each branch partnered with a local nonprofit organization to raise funds for their important work. Although the food was free and open to the public, generous attendees donated to these important causes. We could not be more impressed with our community's generosity! Putnam Valley raised $1,000 for the Putnam Valley Community Food Pantry, Brewster collected $680 for the Brewster High School Scholarship Fund, and LaGrange impressed with about $500 for Kickin' Back LTD.
Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally?
