Senator King Recognizes Bar Harbor Bank & Trust for 130th Anniversary

 In a small ceremony held in Bar Harbor on the afternoon of August 30, United States Senator Angus King presented Bar Harbor Bank & Trust with a Congressional Record commemorating the 130th anniversary of the Bank.  Curtis Simard, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust President and CEO, was there to accept the recognition along with other Officers of the company.

Here are some quotes from the document transcript:

“Bar Harbor Bank & Trust has not only achieved a strong reputation for providing quality service, but it has also cultivated employees who are dedicated to bettering their communities.” 

“Since its founding in 1887, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust has fostered the personal and professional growth of its employees while serving its customers with the highest level of care and concern.”

“I look forward to following Bar Harbor Bank & Trust’s continued growth and service, and I applaud the bank for its dedication to its employees, customers, and local communities.”

Earlier this year Bar Harbor Bank & Trust completed their acquisition of Lake Sunapee Bank, doubling the size of the company.  This leading Northern New England community bank is headquartered in Bar Harbor, on Mount Desert Island, in Hancock County, Maine.  Since the merger the Bank continues to post strong growth and earnings.  Now in its 130th year, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is an employer of choice for local residents and has also attracted talent from out of state.  With an already great reputation, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust’s recent acquisition shows their commitment to remaining independent, competitive and profitable, while maintaining their community bank feel and culture. 

Bar Harbor Bankshares (NYSE MKT: BHB) is the parent of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust with more than $3 billion in assets. Founded in 1887, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is a true community bank serving the financial needs of its customers for 130 years.
