Wellesley Bank Unveils New Logo

Wellesley Bank is celebrating its successful performance and market share growth by unveiling a new logo.  “We believe adopting a new logo at this time helps to solidify with our clients, our business partners and our team the emphasis we are placing on being the premier banking and wealth management company within our markets” said Thomas J. Fontaine, the Bank’s President and CEO.

The new logo coincides with the opening of the new Boston office location at One Federal Street in the heart of Boston’s Financial District.

Fontaine continued, “From day one, over a hundred years ago, we have kept our eyes on financial strength, service excellence and the value of improving the livelihood of the communities in which we serve.  We have made substantial progress, and are now investing in taking our brand promise to a wider audience, while remaining true to our existing client base.”
Fontaine added, “The new logo conveys strength and stability along with being timeless, which is what our clients seek from Wellesley Bank.  We expect our marketplace will come to recognize us by this new logo and our service and commitment to premier banking.”

The Bank is making other investments as well, including launching a new and improved website.  “We continue to apply the sophistication and services of far-larger institutions with our highly personalized approach and knowledge of our client’s specific wants and needs” said Fontaine.  “We are confident the improved look and added functionality of our new website is just one element that demonstrates our commitment to our clients.”

Wellesley Dental Group Annual Candy Drive

Wellesley Dental Group organizes 6th annual community-wide Candy Drive
It all started with local dentists, Drs. Ali & Ali, asking their young patients to donate their excessive Halloween candy in exchange for $1 to protect their teeth. Today, this gesture has grown into a community-wide effort involving schools, the police department, local organizations, retailers and neighboring towns who collect and donate extra Halloween candy and write notes of thanks to U.S. troops overseas.

“Our community is too generous. Kids come home with pillowcases full of candy. We’re all for celebrating the holiday, but no one needs that much candy,” said Dr. Femina Ali, of Wellesley Dental Group. “But for our troops, who are so far away, M&Ms and the handwritten cards children send are a little treat that remind them of home.”

Each year the drive gets bigger and bigger. Last year, Wellesley Dental Group collected a “wall of candy which weighed 5260 pounds,” explains Dr. Ali. “This year we’ll kick-off the drive with a Costume party on the day before Halloween on October 30th from 4-6 p.m. at our office with food, games, prizes and toothbrushes. Everyone is welcome.”

Wellesley Dental Group will accept candy donations from Nov. 1 through Nov. 8 and hold a press event on Nov. 8th at 10 a.m., which is open to the community, before they send the candy off in a U-Haul. CarePacks, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to troops overseas, will package up the candy and cards.
