Bucks County's Oldest Bank Reaffirms Its Commitment to Independence
At a time when more and more banks are being assimilated into mergers and acquisitions, the oldest, most established bank in Bucks County once again made a formal move to reaffirm its commitment to remaining an independent, community bank. The Board of Directors of The First National Bank and Trust Company of Newtown made the announcement at their meeting on June 12, 2012, during which they signed the bank’s unique document known as its "Declaration of Independence." The declaration ensures that Bucks County will continue to have a locally owned bank which operates to serve the needs of the unique community.
"We've been here for more than 145 years, and we remain committed to this county," said Daniel J. Schaffer, President of The First National Bank. "We still reinvest our assets back into Bucks County, and we're still supporting local residents and businesses."
