Monson Savings Bank Celebrates 150th Anniversary with Burying of Time Capsule
In honor of the Bank’s 150th anniversary, employees of Monson Savings Bank joined together to add memorabilia to the time capsule which will be excavated at the Bank’s 175th anniversary in 2047.
Monson Savings Bank’s 150th Anniversary Celebrations began earlier this year and are being continued on throughout the year with great enthusiasm. Most recently, to carry on the commemoration of the Bank’s sesquicentennial, Monson Savings Bank employees joined together to bury a time capsule that will be excavated and opened in 25 years at the Bank’s 175th Anniversary in 2047.
It was a team effort to determine which items would be included in the time capsule. The 150th Anniversary Committee reached out to the all employees of the Bank to get their feedback on which items should be added. Some of the items included were photos, business cards, brochures, a piggy bank, letters, deposit slips, 150th anniversary articles, and of course, Monson Savings branded masks and hand sanitizer.
Dan Moriarty, President and CEO of Monson Savings Bank, led a brief ceremony at the time capsule burial site.
“We thought burying a time capsule would be a unique way for us to commemorate this momentous occasion of Monson Savings Bank turning 150 years old. It gave us an opportunity to think about the future and those who may be opening this capsule in 25 years at our 175th Anniversary,” said Dan Moriarty, Monson Savings Bank President and CEO. “We all feel honored to be a part of the Monson Savings legacy. We carefully thought about the items and messages we would want to share with future generations of the Bank.”
Employees in attendance took a moment to add their business cards, messages, and other items. After the time capsule was sealed, it was placed in the ground. Dan Moriarty took the honors of adding the first scoops of dirt, with others following his lead.
“There is so much history behind Monson Savings Bank – a 150 year history of making a difference for the residents, businesses, and communities we serve,” said Michael Rouette, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “It was exciting to be together adding items to the time capsule and discussing the bright future we all know is ahead for Monson Savings Bank.”
