April 18, 2005

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Jefferson Security Bank President and CEO K. Stephen Morris and Chairman of the Board William E. Knode have broken ground for a second Shepherdstown office.

"This is a significant occasion for Jefferson Security Bank and the Shepherdstown community," Morris said in a prepared release.

"This new office will help us meet the demands of a growing customer base here and allow us to increase customer service to an even higher level," he said.

The new branch, called the Barron Office, will be west of Shepherdstown on W.Va. 45 next to the Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire Department.

Bank officials recognized the new office would be more convenient for customers in the rapidly growing area, according to the release.


"With the progress of several new housing developments here we wanted to make banking as effortless as possible for our patrons, Knode said in the release. "This new office is also evidence of the trust and loyalty our customers have placed in our organization."

The Barron Office will offer full-service banking with four drive-in windows and an automated teller machine.

McCleary & Earley Inc. of Williamsport is the general contractor.

Officials expect the Barron Office to open for business before the end of the year, according to the release.
