Staff members at the Edgewood branch of Timberland Bank joined officials from the Fife-Milton- Edgewood Chamber of Commerce, customers and neighbors at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, June 6.
Timberland Bank first opened a branch in the Edgewood area in the 1980s and moved to the corner of 24th and Meridian in 1987. About six months ago, the branch moved to a modular building for six months while a full-scale renovation of the building took place. With construction now complete, the staff celebrated a grand re-opening of their new facilities at a ribbon cutting ceremony. Timberland’s Edgewood branch is located at 2418 Meridian E., across from the Edgewood Fire Department.
“We are very excited to show off our new facilities and share the benefits of local banking here in Edgewood,” stated Liz Ringer, branch manager and loan officer for the bank.
As part of the grand re-opening visitors entered a $500 cash prize drawing to be held during the month of June. One individual winner will be chosen to win $500 in cash plus an additional $500 in cash for the winner to share with a local non-profit organization. Three local non-profit organizations were chosen as potential recipients of the cash prize including the Edgewood Food Bank, Mountain View Community Center or the East Pierce County Fire & Rescue Foundation Sentimental Journey program. Entry blanks and full details are available at the Edgewood branch with eligibility of one entry per person per day.
“A cash prize is always a winner, but having an equal cash prize to share with the non-profit of the winner’s choice is the icing on the cake. It’s a great way for us to give back to organizations that contribute so much to the quality of life we enjoy,” stated Ringer. The drawing is open until Saturday, July 1 when a winner will be chosen.
