In a twist on a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony, local business, community, and government leaders today cut a ribbon of $1 bills at a Grand Re-Opening of Rockville Bank’s new Lafayette Square branch at 20 Hyde Avenue in Vernon, Conn. The newly built office was constructed in the same location as the building that was demolished in May. This past January, Rockville Bank closed its Lafayette Square office because of roof damage related to the region’s record heavy snow. Since then, a temporary Lafayette Square branch had been open at a nearby location in the former Tim Hortons shop.
Cutting the ribbon of $1 bills is William (Bill) H. W. Crawford, IV, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rockville Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Select Market "RCKB"), the parent of Rockville Bank.
The newly built full-service Lafayette Square branch includes four teller counter stations, two drive-up teller windows, drive-up and walk-up automatic teller machines (ATMs), and safe deposit boxes. The office features customer convenience items such as a document shredder, and a flat-panel LCD screen to provide customers with news, weather, sports and business information. The branch also features a refreshment center, offering complimentary beverages and cookies.
