– Timberland Banks 100th birthday is today!
“Timberland Bank is set to celebrate a birthday next month. It will turn 100 on Dec. 7, 2015 after it opened years ago as Southwest Washington Savings and Loan on Dec. 7, 1915.
A lot has happened to the Hoquiam-based bank and the community it serves in the ensuing years, said President and Chief Executive Michael Sand, who has spent 39 years with the bank. He started in 1977 as a part-time loan officer and rose through the ranks to become president and CEO in 2003,” quoting Rolf Boone, The Olympian.
– “100 Good Deeds in our 100th Year”
“During the planning stages for our 100th Anniversary, our staff chose to find ways to serve others and give back to the communities we care about as an expression of our gratefulness. Each branch, department and staff member is granted personal time to find ways to share the strength, success and vitality of Timberland Bank in a meaningful way with the communities we live in and call home.
Throughout the year we are connecting with local organizations and events to lend a helping hand and ensure the benefits of our efforts will serve local needs. We can truly say it has been both humbling and an honor to serve others and contribute to the quality of life we enjoy.
Our goal is to perform 100 Good Deeds in our 100th Year,” quoting Timberland Bank.
