My Retirement

As many of you know, I will be retiring effective October 31 and moving back to the Boston area.  The past three and a half years have been challenging, frustrating, rewarding, wonderful, heartbreaking, amazing -- you name it!  From the daunting task of building a community bank from the ground up, to the agonizing wait to be chartered, to finally opening the doors and feeling the welcome from the community -- it's the hardest work I have ever done, and the most rewarding.  I often say my…

Lynn Smith honored as a New Haven Rising Star


Start Community Bank was delighted to been recognized by Business New Haven for the work we are doing in our community.  Now, it's a mystery to me that as everything on my body is sagging and drooping I am named a Rising Star -- but the spirit is ALWAYS rising even if body parts are not.

In any event, we are delighted to receive so many pieces of good news this month - first this award, and then an award from the Chamber of Commerce for our nonprofit partnership with Solar…
