For Immediate Release

Local Banks Stand United Amid COVID-19 Concerns

The Honesdale National Bank, The Dime Bank and Wayne Bank Work Collectively to Serve Community

March 17, 2020 (Honesdale, PA) – While our institutions are unique, since our individual foundings we have shared a common goal — supporting the residents and businesses across the widening breadth of communities we serve.

Despite age, income, or industry, these are very uncertain times. Therefore, as we often do, The Wayne Bank, The Honesdale National Bank, and The Dime Bank are again joining forces to be a point of stability and consistency when many things seem in question.

What this initially means is that we will work collaboratively to share information and updates on the developing issues confronting our industry and communities.

At this time, we are coordinating the protection and health of our employees, customers and community members by moving to drive-up services only at all of our banking locations. At our respective banking locations, lobby service will be provided by appointment only. To establish appointments, please contact your local Bank office. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with our efforts to flatten the curve of COVID-19.

We will remain vigilant to ensure our Main Streets remain vibrant, our families rest assured and our children look back at this time as a showcase of unity not isolation.

We encourage your outreach to share news of need and consideration. We are listening, together, to keep our communities strong.
