Wayne Bank Celebrates Serving the Shohola Community for Twenty Years

Shohola, PA – On Monday, March 14, Wayne Bank’s Shohola Community Office will be celebrating twenty years of serving Pike County, Pennsylvania and Highland, Sullivan County. Wayne Bank acquired the Shohola office from Meridian Bancorp and began attending to customers in March 1996.

Built in 1955 in downtown Shohola, and within walking distance of the Barryville–Shohola Bridge, Wayne Bank’s Shohola office maintains a charming, small-town banking experience. Sheltered, yet still providing all of the modern financial tools that customers desire, Shohola bridges the best of both worlds.

“Shohola, the Lenni Lenape native American word for ‘Place of Peace’ matches the atmosphere we work to achieve in our office,“ stated Sandra Mruczkewycz, Community Office Manager of Wayne Bank’s Shohola Office. Madeline Portugal, Branch Specialist, adds “Considering the history of Shohola, twenty years doesn’t seem too long, but it has been ample time to build great relationships in the area, always working towards Helping the Community Grow.”

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary, Sandy, Madeline, and staff will have refreshments and treats available during business hours on Monday, March 14. The public is welcome to attend. No purchase is necessary and while Wayne Bank plans on providing lots of goodies for the festivities, the offer is only good while supplies last.

Wayne Bank is a subsidiary of Norwood Financial Corp., Member FDIC, and is located in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. The Bank has fifteen Community Offices in Wayne, Pike, Monroe, and Lackawanna Counties. The stock trades on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol – NWFL.
