Norway Savings Bank celebrates 150 years of service

NORWAY – Soon after the Civil War ended, Norway Savings Bank was founded in 1866. In February that year, fourteen local men signed the charter and Nathaniel Gunnison was elected the first president one month later when the bank was incorporated. The Oxford Democrat reported on the birth of Norway Savings on March 23. 
Since this time, Norway Savings Bank has grown from its headquarters on Main Street, Norway to the third largest Maine-based mutual bank, with 24 branches in western and southern Maine. To commemorate this milestone, the Bank is kicking off a yearlong celebration by hosting a 150th anniversary party at all of their branch locations on February 5th. 

The public is invited to visit any of Norway Savings Bank’s 24 branch locations on Friday, February 5th (snow date, Monday, February 8th) for cake and refreshments. The first 150 visitors to stop by any branch will receive a free copy of an anniversary book that has been published to celebrate the bank’s customers, employees and communities. 

Attendees to the anniversary party will also have the chance to enter to win cash prizes and are encouraged to visit the Norway Savings Bank Facebook page to post the name of their favorite Maine-based nonprofit, which will be entered into a drawing for $1,500. The bank also encourages people to post and share stories about how Norway Savings Bank has helped them, their family, their business, their community or a nonprofit they care about on their Facebook page. Every month, the bank will draw a name from the submitted stories and the winner will receive $150.
