Putnam County Bank now has a branch in Perry Morris Square in Milton. A grand opening celebration with a ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Wednesday, September 8. This will be the bank’s first branch outside of Putnam County.
“It is our honor to be in Milton,” said John Wilson. “A lot of our customers are there.” Wilson grew up in Milton and says that the opening of the new branch is like a homecoming to him.
Kelly Shaw is the Milton branch manager. She grew up in Milton and says that it is good to come home. She previously worked at the main branch for over twenty years.
The Milton branch will provide banking, lending, and deposit services. Lobby hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The drive-thru will be open until 6 p.m. on Thursdays, and from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
During the ceremony, Putnam County Bank presented Sherry and Don Perry of the ECCHO Food and Clothing Pantry with a donation of $2,000. The Milton Volunteer Fire Department also received a donation.
