TAUNTON, MASSACHUSETTS: Mechanics Cooperative Bank Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team are pleased to announce they have donated $1500 to purchase and install a flagpole in honor of local veterans at St. Lawrence Martyr church in New Bedford. As a new member of the New Bedford business community Mechanics Cooperative Bank is now located at 1238 Kempton Street and is proud to honor local veterans and partner with a special parish like St. Lawrence.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the New Bedford business community and are happy to support all US veterans, past and present.” said President and CEO of Mechanics Cooperative Bank Joseph T. Baptista Jr. “This is exactly what community banking should be and what the Let’s Keep it Local philosophy is all about. We look forward to more great work and partnerships in the New Bedford community going forward.”
The flagpole at St. Lawrence Martyr church was planned for some time however funding for the project proved to be difficult.
