The Chester office of Essex Savings Bank opened its doors on December 14, 2012 and has been embraced by the local community. The anniversary was marked by a weeklong celebration at the branch. Customers were treated with appetizers, desserts, beverages, giveaways, and raffles throughout the week of December 9 through 14. All visitors to the Chester Branch were encouraged to enter their name for the grand prize drawing, an Apple iPAD. On December 17, President and CEO Gregory R. Shook selected the winning entry. Bank management is proud of the Chester Branch’s successful first year serving the Connecticut River Valley.
