President's Message

Fall is here! Which brings with it the start of the 2020 fiscal year.  Once again, we are pleased to report that 2019 has been a great year for Bridgewater Savings Bank.

COMMUNITY MATTERS

We take pride in our community involvement and all the great things our employees contribute to the local region. Recently, a dozen employees participated in the School on Wheels program, donating their time to fill 190 bags with much needed school supplies. We also had nine employees on-site in Duxbury landscaping during a Build Day with South Shore Habitat for Humanity.

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
  • Raynham Pride Day
  • Pembroke Celebrates
  • Bridgewater Savings Annual Shred Event

In addition to our staff involvement at community events, we had another 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 September 30th, Bridgewater Savings Bank has provided over $432,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance towards the purchase of 25 homes.

INNOVATION

We are continually searching for ways that we can make banking easier for our customers and prospects. In the coming months, we will be expanding our Online Account Opening to non-customers. This will allow individuals to open a new account online in the comfort of their home.

WHAT’S NEXT

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.

Peter Dello Russo, President and CEO
