Maspeth Federal Savings reopened two branches – Fresh Meadows and Forest Hills – with ribbon cutting ceremonies on Wednesday, October 5.

Cake, live music and prizes helped reopen the Metropolitan Avenue bank that takes serving the community seriously.

“We hold a lot of community events,” said Victoria Grappone, Forest Hills Branch manager. “Maspeth federal is a very strong bank; we’ve been in this community for 37 years.”

The Maspeth Federal location on Metropolitan Avenue first opened its doors in 1974, next door to its current location, and its dedication to community involvement is ingrained in its history.

“We feel we have a real presence in the community,” said the bank’s President and CEO Kenneth Rudzewick. “We’ve been doing this for 65 years.”

Founded in 1947 by local citizens and business leaders, the bank opened to benefit its customers and the community. The bank takes its slogan, “We treat you like family,” to heart. Besides organizing community events, the bank visits local schools to teach students how to save and assists at senior centers.

The bank’s community events include free summer concerts, a 5-Mile Fun Run and Smile on Maspeth Day.
