Our collective efforts resulted in a quarterly profit of $256,000, and a year-to-date profit of $711,000. We continue to strive for core earnings and remain optimistic that our earnings will continue to favorably progress as a result of our strategy. I would like to thank our team for their solid effort that resulted in positive quarterly earnings. The Bank has reported positive quarterly earnings every quarter since the first quarter of 2011. We look forward to our continued future success,” said Adriana M. Boeka, President and Chief Executive Officer.
