Winter 2017

Dear Friends:

I’m proud to let you know that 2017 marks our 100th birthday!  A sincere thank you to all of the customers, staff, and communities that we serve for helping us reach this great milestone. Usually when things turn 100 they start showing signs of age, slowing down a bit, and reflecting on the good ol’ days. Well, I’m pleased to say that we’re just getting started, and the next 100 years will be even better than the first. We have a full calendar of activities, new products, enhanced services, and some special surprises in store for our customers this year. If you’re not a customer yet, time to get onboard so you don’t miss out.

Of course, we’ll be continuing those activities that really make a difference in the lives of our customers, like $100,000 in scholarships for high school seniors pursuing secondary education, a full plate of personal and professional enrichment courses at HarborOne U, and the continued philanthropic support of local organizations and the communities that we call home. I should also let you know that we will launch our new Charitable Foundation this year, furthering our efforts to help those who need it most. There’s much to look forward to this year, not the least of which is ensuring that we’re the very best that we can be to help you achieve all that you want in 2017.

As always,thank you for banking with us.

Sincerely,

James W. Blake
Chief Executive Officer
