PEABODY, MASSACHUSETTS (www.northshore-bank.com) – The Peabody Centennial Celebrations Committee was thrilled to receive a check for $10,000 on behalf of North Shore Bank for the bank’s Grand Marshall sponsorship of the City’s Centennial events. Presenting the sponsorship check to the City were Kevin Tierney Sr., President and COO and Christopher Pesce, Vice President and Marketing Officer of North Shore Bank.

“This is just another shining example of how North Shore Bank always steps up to support our community. We appreciate their donation for our Centennial Events and their ongoing support of our City!”
Kevin Tierney, Sr., President and COO of North Shore Bank said:
“This event celebrates the great history of this community. North Shore Bank has been a fixture in Peabody since 1888 when we were formed as the Peabody Cooperative Bank.” He went on to say, “We commend the city and the Centennial Committee for their hard work in pulling the parade together, and we’re proud to be a part of this event.”
Throughout 2016 and into 2017, the City of Peabody is celebrating its 100th anniversary as a City.
