Supporting Cathedral Kitchen!

Cathedral Kitchen

Audubon Savings Bank continues to support our great communities! On August 6th with the help of our Audubon Branch Manager Donna Salvia, our Bank presented a check to our friends at Cathedral Kitchen in Camden as part of our first Jean Fridays this summer! For every staff member who made a donation, they were entitled to wear Jeans every Friday from Memorial Day to Labor Day! It was an exciting opportunity for our Bank, and it all went to a great cause.

Many thanks to Amy Craven at our Admin Office for conceiving the idea and coordinating our efforts, as well as all who made a donation to such a great organization!

Exciting News for our Bill Pay Users!

News
Audubon Savings Bank is excited to provide our Bill Pay customers with enhanced feature functionality. Upgraded features include the following:
  • Pay Virtually Anyone. The local bakery, a Fortune 500 Company…even your babysitter.
  • Same Day/Next Day Payments. Payments can often be received in as little as one business day, even that same afternoon, if necessary. Fees may apply with this service.
  • Group Payments into Categories. Organize your utilities, cable and phone into a folder named household.
  • Account to Account Transfers. Even accounts at other financial institutions. Your money is always available, regardless of where you keep it.
  • Receive eBills. Green, more convenient, more secure and easier to manage.
  • Reminders. Receive updates through email when you receive a bill, or when it’s due.
  • Automatic Payments. Great for bills that stay the same each month, like your rent and your car loan.
  • Search Bill History. Search by company, date and status, the moment you need an answer, wherever you are.
  • Message Center. Get quick answers to questions you might have.
  • Completely safe. More secure than mailing paper checks.
During this upgrade, our Bill Pay service will be unavailable from Tuesday afternoon, July 22, 2014, through Thursday morning, July 24, 2014. Any payments that are already scheduled will process normally, including payments scheduled during the upgrade period.

To ensure a smooth transition, please consider the following important items:
  • Bill Pay History will be transferred to the new system. For your records, you will need to print or download your Bill Pay history before Tuesday afternoon, July 22, 2014.
  • All your payees and all scheduled bill payments will be automatically transferred to the new Bill Pay service.
  • Any payments that are already scheduled will process normally, including payments scheduled during the upgrade period. There is no need to reschedule any of your payments.

Continuing to Support our Community!

Children’s Fresh Air Home
Audubon Savings Bank continues to support our surrounding communities! Every year the Gloucester Township Rotary (now the Gloucester Twp/Pine Hill Rotary) takes about 60 kids to the Children’s Fresh Air Home in North Wildwood. There are eight elementary schools in Gloucester Twp and two elementary schools in Pine Hill that went this year for the first time.

Our Bank’s own Nora Palumbi, a member of the Rotary Club, was excited to chaperon for the Pine Hill School kids this year. The kids were fed lunch on the grounds of the home and then spent the afternoon at the boardwalk for rides at Morey’s Piers! At 5pm they capped off the day with a BBQ hosted by the Fresh Air Home!

Audubon Savings Bank is pleased to support the Children’s Fresh Air Home and wishes this great non-profit organization success for the future! Thanks to Nora for volunteering for such a great event, and for representing our Bank!

Our Night Out at the Riversharks Game!

Riversharks Game
On a wonderful Wednesday night, members of our entire Bank staff went to Campbell’s Field for a night out to see the Camden Riversharks play the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs! Senior Vice President and Chief Lending Officer Rob Bender even threw out the first pitch!

The 4th inning was the Audubon Savings Bank Grand Slam Inning! In the bottom of the 4th inning, if the fourth Riversharks batter hits a grand slam during his at-bat, one lucky contestant wins $25,000!

Thanks to everyone who went to the game on such a beautiful night!

Proudly Supporting our Seniors!

Nora with Pine Hill Borough Police Officer
Audubon Savings proudly supports our seniors! On Friday, the Pine Hill Borough Police Department and Pine Hill Municipal Alliance hosted a Senior Citizen Narcotic Pill Safety and Health Screening Luncheon and our Pine Hill Branch Manager Nora Palumbi was there to help! Thanks to the Pine Hill Police Department, Pine Hill Municipal Alliance, and Nora for contributing to such a great event!

Our Bank Welcomes New CFO Jan Summers

Jan
I am delighted to have joined the team here at Audubon as Chief Financial Officer, and look forward to contributing positively to our future. I thought I would take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself, both professionally and personally.

I am a CPA, and began my career in public accounting with Deloitte Haskins + Sells. I subsequently joined AmeriFederal Savings Bank, which was one of my banking clients at Deloitte. AmeriFederal was a privately owned, stock, denovo in Lawrenceville. After seven years there, I worked for the Resolution Trust Corporation (“RTC”) for a few years. The RTC was the government agency that was responsible for taking over and resolving failed thrifts in the late 80′s and early 90′s. In 1993, I joined St. Edmond’s Federal Savings Bank in South Philadelphia. St. Edmond’s was a mutual, like Audubon, during the seven years that I was there. From St. Edmond’s, I went to Roebling Bank, which was a publicly owned stock institution, and was CFO there until it was sold last year. As you can see, my career has been in the community banking industry, and Audubon was a natural fit for me!

On a personal level, I love the outdoors and being physically active. Most of my outdoor time is spent walking, running, hiking or gardening. I ran my first half marathon in 2012, and have run two more since then. I usually do a hiking trip each year, most often in the Swiss or Italian Alps. I have also climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and am planning to do a trekking trip in the Himalayas soon. I have a garden and grow vegetables, flowers, do sudokus and jigsaw puzzles.

So there you have a little bit about me. I look forward to working with all of you here at Audubon, and with our third-party professionals as well. Thank you to everyone who has given me such a warm welcome and made me feel at home!
