Norway Savings Bank invites Community to Celebrate Completion of Landscaping Beautification Project

Dedication Event rescheduled to rain date of  September 3rd at 1pm

NORWAY, Maine – Norway Savings Bank is pleased to announce the landscaping beautification project at its headquarters on 261 Main Street in Norway will be completed September 1st. The construction, which spanned 3 ½ months, transformed the exterior of the Main and Danforth Street sides of the building, with beautiful landscaping and an incredible new public space.

“Our vision of providing a safer, more beautiful space has come to fruition,” said Dan Walsh, President of Norway Savings Bank. “It is especially gratifying to share the space with the Oxford Hills community and we hope many members will come out to celebrate with us. We are thankful to local contractors Bruce Korhonen, Korhonen Company LLC; Dave Kenney, Kenney Property Maintenance LLC; Dennis Fournier, DR Fournier, Inc; Heath Poland, Flanders Electric; and Mason Olmstead, Pine Tree Paving. While the project took longer than we anticipated due to weather challenges and supply availability, the quality of their workmanship was excellent. We are also grateful to Patrick Carroll, Carroll Associates Landscape Architects for creating the beautiful design for the project.”

The new outdoor space features granite benches, paver walkways and the Bank has also provisioned for future electric vehicle charging stations.

The public is invited to attend a dedication ceremony on Friday September 3, 2021 at 1 pm – the event was rescheduled to Friday due to a wet, cool and windy forecast on the originally-scheduled date, September 2 . Attendees will  see three unique sculptures, designed by renowned Maine artist, Jac Ouellette unveiled. Dan Walsh, President and Pat Weigel, CEO of Norway Savings Bank will speak and attendees will enjoy ice cream, compliments of the bank (while supplies last)! Cool Treats For Charity, a local nonprofit ice cream cart will provide the treats. The bank will make donations to Alan Day Community Garden, The Progress Center and Short Folks for Hope Foundation for every ice cream given away!
