President's Message

Fall is here!  Which brings with it the start of the 2019 fiscal year.  Once again, we are pleased to report that 2018 has been a great year for Bridgewater Savings Bank. While the rates may be rising, we remain very competitive with our CDs.  Be sure to check out our specials!

COMMUNITY MATTERS

We take pride in our community involvement and all the great things our employees contribute to the local region.  Recently, more than a dozen employees participated in the School on Wheels program, donating their time to fill over 150 bags with much needed school supplies.   Employees donated all the funds and supplies for this charity event and were rewarded with dressing down for the day.

Fall is a busy time for community events for the Bridgewater family!  We are honored to mention the involvement of our employees in each of the Bank-sponsored events below.

  • West Bridgewater Park Day
  • Bridgewater Autumn Fest
  • BSU Business Expo
  • Brockton Housing Authority Expo
  • Raynham Pride Day
  • Pembroke Celebrates

In addition to our staff involvement at community events, we are also completing our most successful year in providing down payment and closing cost assistance for community members.  Saving enough money to fund down payment and closing costs remains the single biggest challenge for first-time homebuyers. In total through Sept. 30, Bridgewater Savings Bank has provided over $540,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance towards the purchase of 28 homes.

WHAT’S NEXT

Our ever-popular Shred Day is scheduled for Saturday, October 13th at our Raynham location.

More than 15.4 million Americans were victims of identity fraud last year.  BSB wants to help protect you from identity theft and will be hosting a mobile shredding event where all residents can destroy old documents and confidential files safely.  Bring your unwanted personal documents to our Raynham location on Saturday, October 13th between 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.  They will be safely destroyed in the mobile shredder and you will have peace of mind knowing your identity won’t be compromised.

Once again, we thank you for the trust and support that you place with us as we strive to deliver unique personalized service for each of our customers.  It’s what we call “Uncommon Banking”.  We are honored to have you as a loyal customer and look forward to the opportunity to demonstrate that commitment every day.

Thank you,

Peter Dello Russo, President and CEO
