office during the September flooding.

ATHENS, PA – Citizens & Northern Bank’s Athens office, severely damaged by flood waters in September, will be renovated and will re-open in the same location – 428 South Main Street.

The C&N Board of Directors made the announcement at their board meeting Thursday.

The office and most of its contents were destroyed in this disaster, which impacted hundreds of families and businesses in the community. It is anticipated that renovations will take approximately three to four months, said Charles H. Updegraff, Jr., C&N chairman, president and CEO.

“Citizens & Northern has been committed to the valley since C&N merged with Farmers National Bank in 1984. We are well aware that the bank has been a fixture in the Athens community since Farmers opened there in 1893,” Updegraff said. “We look forward to once again serving our customers from the Athens location.”

Until the Athens office re-opens, the Athens staff is working from the Sayre office at 1827 Elmira Street. Customers can check on progress at the Athens office on the bank’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/citizensandnorthernbank.

WELLSBORO, PA - Monetary donations are desperately needed by the American Red Cross to deal with flooding in the region. Valerie Whyman, director of donor relations for the Northcentral PA Chapter of the American Red Cross, said funds are needed to provide temporary shelter for victims, food, cleaning supplies, disaster kits and other necessities.

Whyman was in Wellsboro Friday to accept a $50,000 donation from Citizens & Northern Bank. The funds will be shared by the Lycoming and Bradford/Sullivan chapters and will stay in the communities under their umbrellas, as requested by the bank. The donation was announced earlier this week. Communities in those counties were especially hard hit by flooding.

“These counties encompass a large area of our market. People impacted by this disaster are our customers, employees, family members, neighbors and friends. We are pleased to make this contribution and hope it will provide some relief for those affected,” said Charles H. Updegraff, Jr., C&N chairman, president and CEO.

Whyman said the Red Cross has spent more than $15 million on East Coast disasters since the beginning of September. Local chapters in Williamsport and Towanda are serving some of the communities most devastated by Tropical Storms Irene and Lee.

A number of organizations and businesses are collecting funds for the Red Cross, including Citizens & Northern Bank, which is accepting donations at all 25 of its open offices. The Athens office was severely damaged by flooding and remains closed. Funds collected at the C&N branches will be divided between the Lycoming and Bradford/Sullivan Chapters.

Donations are also being accepted directly by the Red Cross at www.redcross.org. Ten dollar donations are being accepted via text at 90999.

Citizens & Northern Bank is a local, independent community bank providing complete financial, investment and insurance services through 26 full service offices throughout Cameron, Potter, McKean, Tioga, Bradford, Sullivan and Lycoming counties in Pennsylvania and in Canisteo and Hornell, NY in Steuben County.
