Cake, live music and prizes helped reopen the Metropolitan Avenue bank that takes serving the community seriously.
“We hold a lot of community events,” said Victoria Grappone, Forest Hills Branch manager. “Maspeth federal is a very strong bank; we’ve been in this community for 37 years.”
“We feel we have a real presence in the community,” said the bank’s President and CEO Kenneth Rudzewick. “We’ve been doing this for 65 years.”
Founded in 1947 by local citizens and business leaders, the bank opened to benefit its customers and the community. The bank takes its slogan, “We treat you like family,” to heart. Besides organizing community events, the bank visits local schools to teach students how to save and assists at senior centers.
The bank’s community events include free summer concerts, a 5-Mile Fun Run and Smile on Maspeth Day.
