2014 is an exciting year for The First! We are proud to celebrate 150 years of providing outstanding banking service to the residents and businesses of Bucks County. We would not be here without your support and we are sincerely grateful.
As we pause to reflect, we think back to our roots. In 1864, our nation was in the midst of a civil war, yet a handful of visionary business leaders decided to open a bank in Newtown. Since then we have weathered many storms including the Great Depression, two World Wars and, most recently, a world-wide recession. And while many banks have come and gone, The First National Bank has remained. No name changes, no mergers; rock solid in the face of adversity and dedicated to providing top-notch personal service to our customers. We celebrate our past success while we look forward to the future.
To our customers, we say thank you! Thank you for putting your trust in us each and every day and allowing us to become part of your lives. It is a privilege we don't take lightly. We pledge to provide products and services designed to meet your financial goals along with outstanding customer service. We will work hard to earn your continued business.
To our employees, we say bravo! Your dedication to personal service and commitment to excellence are evident in the lasting relationships you have forged with customers. Thank you for your loyalty and for making a difference in our communities with the countless non-profit organizations you support. It is because of you that we are proud to have been named one of the Philly.com Top Workplaces for 2013.
To those looking for more from their bank, we invite you to come and see the difference 150 years makes. We provide state of the art financial services along with our experience and expertise to help you move confidently into the future.
As we look ahead, we remain committed to Bucks County and to the practices that have allowed us to remain an independent, community bank for 150 years. Look for us in all the usual places: our branches, community events and supporting the non-profit organizations that make Bucks County a special place to live.
The times may have changed but one thing has not; The First National Bank and Trust Company of Newtown. Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow.
