BALLSTON SPA — Ballston Spa National Bank recently hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony at the bank’s Galway Office located at 5091 Sacandaga Rd., the bank said in a statement to the press. The ceremony marked the completion of recent renovations at the location.
The celebration following the ribbon cutting featured refreshments and a token gift for customers. In keeping with the renovation theme, special offers for home improvement loans, home equity lines of credit, mortgage loans and other bank services will be available to the public through mid-July, the bank said.
The Galway office is one of five BSNB locations to undergo renovations this year. Originally opened in 1974, the location now offers the safety and convenience of a drive-thru ATM, an updated look, and an enhanced banking experience.
“BSNB has been a proud member of the Galway community for some 39 years,” said Christopher R. Dowd, president and CEO of BSNB. “With this investment, we hope to build on the strong relationships we have established over the years and to enhance the service and support we provide to our customers.”
Renovation celebrations at the Malta, Stillwater, Greenfield Center and Milton Crest offices are scheduled for this June.

Ballston Spa National Bank recently presented a $1,000 donation to Brookside Museum, home of the Saratoga County Historical Society, to help the museum offer programs and services in 2013, the bank announced in a press release.
“Programs like Sheep to Shawl and Native New York offer thousands of local school children the opportunity to learn about our county’s history in a unique and interactive way,” said Christopher R. Dowd, BSNB president and CEO. “In making this donation, BSNB hopes to assist Brookside in continuing to bring these programs to our community.”
“About 4,000 Capital Region children benefit from Brookside programs every year,” said Joy Houle, executive director of Brookside. “These programs simply would not happen if it were not for the generosity of the community and businesses like BSNB.”
Funding for the Brookside donation comes from a program initiated by BSNB in 2009. The program is designed to recognize the volunteer efforts of BSNB staff members and provide the opportunity for them to nominate organizations for financial support. As a result, a variety of organizations have received funding, including, local food pantries, veteran’s programs, community libraries, education foundations, community centers, first responders, youth programs and health and human services groups.
