BAS-RELIEF ABOVE OUR ENTRANCE

THIS PICTURESQUE BAS-RELIEF IS A TRIBUTE TO THE THOUSANDS OF MOTHERS WHO, THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY OF THIS COMMUNITY HAVE TAUGHT THEIR CHILDREN THE HABIT OF THRIFT.

FROM DUTCH COLONIAL DAYS ... THE DAYS OF NIEUW AMSTERDAM WINDMILLS, INDIANS, MONEY CHESTS AND SAILING VESSELS... TO THE PRESENT DAY WITH ITS PUBLIC SCHOOLS, SKYSCRAPERS, GIANT PLANES ... THE WOMEN OF THIS COMMUNITY HAVE KNOWN THE VALUE OF THRIFT. FOR TO THEM A SAVINGS RESERVE MEANT GREATER FAMILY SECURITY PROTECTION HAPPINESS AND THE MEANS WITH WHICH TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITIES.

MONEY EARNED IN COLONIAL MARKET PLACES, CAREFULLY SAVED, FREQUENTLY PURCHASED THE LAND UPON WHICH TODAY'S SKYSCRAPERS, PARTIALLY FINANCED BY YOUR SAVINGS BANKS, HAVE BEEN BUILT. ALL THIS IS DEPICTED IN THIS BAS-RELIEF ABOVE OUR ENTRANCE.
