Perhaps this has happened to you when walking into your favorite store…the first thing you see is a rack screaming “JUST ARRIVED – 50% OFF TODAY!” and you think to yourself, “Great! I will be able to save some money today.” You walk around the store, make your purchase and end up spending the same amount of money anyway! While you may have gotten more for your money, where is the savings?

Valentine’s Day is upon us, and while many will focus on our romantic endeavors this time of year, there’s another kind of love to ruminate on – the unconditional love of a pet. As a pet owner who just last month had to say goodbye to my beloved old dog, I can attest to the joy an animal can bring, but also to the cost of opening your home to one. Over his fourteen years of life, Gabe went to the vet a few dozen times, was kenneled twice, cared for by in-house sitters on numerous occasions, and of course ate his way through countless bags of dog food and treats. I never regretted my decision to take in that silly little puppy someone found on the side of the road, but I did have to adjust my budget to make room for him.

Did we make our goal of donating 300,000 meals through our Tweet2Feed campaign during last year’s holiday season? Oh, yes we did! We blew our goal out of the water by donating 341,780 meals to food banks in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and West Virginia!! That’s incredible! A HUGE thank you to customers who opened new checking accounts and added services to their new or existing checking accounts. Also, thanks to our Facebook and Twitter followers for re-tweeting Twitter messages, “Liking” our Facebook posts and for sharing Tweet2Feed posts on your own Facebook pages to spread the word! Without your help, we would not have reached our goal!

Over the years, I’ve tried every diet and club that you can think of to lose weight. Because I continued to see minimal results, l felt like I should just get used to being big.

Brian Martin, Financial Analyst for Susquehanna Bank in Lititz, PA, was one of 30 employees who recently participated in a workplace blood drive.
On September 11, 2001, I was working in public relations for a hospital. One of my job responsibilities was marketing the services of the in-house blood bank.
On September 12, 2001, I helped with crowd control – the line to donate blood extended out the door of the blood donor center, and snaked way down the hall. People, who just wanted to do “something” in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy, waited for hours to donate. Misery was definitely loving company that day.

As the New Year begins, many people take a look at making a fresh start. Cleaning, organizing, and exercising are all popular topics during January. As you start cleaning the “hot spots” in your home, you might come across items that you don’t know how to dispose of responsibly. We’d like to offer some suggestions!
Sometimes you just don’t shop at the store or eat at the restaurant that your well-meaning relative purchased a gift card for you to enjoy. Maybe you typically do shop there, but weren’t able to find anything you like this time, so you put the card in that desk drawer that seems to be a bottomless pit of odds and ends. What to do?

Oh, the holidays – the twinkling lights, warm cider, office parties, long lines at the post office – these are part of our traditions. But there’s another one, a more sinister holiday theme that persists year after year- the Bad Gift. Maybe your Aunt Matilda just can’t remember that your sweater size isn’t what it was when you were 12. Or your neighbor Frank is so proud of his unusual crocheting skills, he foists a lopsided tea cozy on you in the worst color combinations imaginable, every year. You awkwardly accept, express your gratitude for their kindness…and wonder what the HECK you are going to do with this thing?

Fill in the blank. My holiday season would not be complete without ________________. (Please fill in your favorite holiday tradition.)
Earlier this week we shared a collection of our employees’ favorite Christmas Eve holiday traditions. Today, we add to that collection. Unlike our Thanksgiving blog, where the answers ran the gamut, the answers to this month’s blog topic were far more traditional – like picking and decorating the perfect Christmas tree, cookie baking, singing Christmas carols, and although no one referenced chestnuts roasting over an open fire, they did reference hanging the stockings by the chimney with care….
