Joe is well aware that this is an unusual message to be promoted on the Time & Temp, but there’s good reason for it, which you’ll discover below! “Free ATMs” is one of the many benefits that Joe receives as a customer of Bangor Savings Bank. Operating continuously in Maine for over 160 years, BSB has been encouraging entrepreneurial endeavors in our local community since long before Joe came around and opened his business in his hometown of Portland. Bangor Savings is expanding even further into Portland, which is exciting news for all of us in the community, since along with the expansion will come more jobs and greater economic opportunity for Portlanders. As fond as Joe is of his friends over at BSB, he’s not just using the Time & Temp to promote their services– Bangor Savings was generous enough to make a substantial donation to Joe’s favorite local non-profit, the Cromwell Center for Disabilities Awareness, in return for a few days up on the “Big Board”. Joe cannot recommend these two local institutions enough. The Cromwell Center’s mission is to promote safe, respectful and inclusive schools and communities. Through questioning and facilitation, Cromwell helps people discover on their own – and from each other – positive attitudes, understanding, and acceptance of differences.

Joe thanks BSB for their generosity and eagerly awaits their continued development in his hometown, and thanks Cromwell for their continued dedication to the important work that they do.
