Mr. Murphy continued, "It was also a quarter to celebrate for additional reasons. In June, we kicked off the 150th anniversary of the Bank's founding with an all-employee celebration. The event featured videos of our clients relating why we were important in their lives, some vintage television commercials showing how we presented ourselves to the market over the years, and a dynamic presentation on the philosophy of ethics and sustainable values as the basis for our next 150 years. The celebration culminated in an activity which demonstrated how all of our colleagues across the Bank are important and meaningful in connecting as a team to serve our clients and was a terrific way to start the Bank's next 150 years."
