Our two new Cherry Hill campuses, opening May 15, 2010, will exemplify our commitment by providing Free Financial Workshops, a Learning Library, Knowledge Bar and a Little Learner’s Corner to our customers. We remain well capitalized and will continue to invest in our customers, employees and communities to do the right thing financially.”

Highlights for the quarter ended March 31, 2010:
