I am pleased to report continued progress in Mid Penn's performance, both for the second quarter of 2010 and for the first six months of 2010, compared to the same time periods in 2009. Net interest income, net income available to common shareholders, diluted earnings per common share, return on average equity, and total deposits all showed considerable growth as evidenced by the table above. Our success in core deposit growth has driven down the cost of funds, which in turn has improved net interest margin and net interest income -- our key source of income.
