Charles River Bank President and CEO Jack Hamilton recently donated $825 to the Bellingham Public Library in the form of a check presented to Library Director Bernadette Rivard. The donation was a result of one of Charles River Bank’s 100th Anniversary Celebration programs, whereby the bank hung 100 wind chimes throughout the towns where its branches are located—Medway, Bellingham, and Mendon.

The wind chimes were a free 100th Anniversary commemorative gift for each person who found one. The “finders” were asked to post a picture and list the location of where their 100th Anniversary wind chime was located and submit the information via CRB’s Facebook page or by e-mail. A donation of $25 per wind chime was made to each town’s library. In Bellingham, 33 wind chimes were placed both inside local businesses and outside in public areas.

Charles River Bank is pleased to support the valuable programs offered through the Bellingham Public Library ( in this special Centennial Celebration community program.
