FORT PIERCE -- The St. Lucie County business community came out in force to Oculina Bank's open house recently celebrating the renovation of its Delaware Avenue branch at the corner of South Seventh Street and Delaware Avenue.
"We really appreciate our customers and all the local business people who came out to celebrate with us," said Rick Clayton, Oculina's senior vice president of retail banking. "We look forward to maintaining and growing the long-term relationships we've established here."
The Fort Pierce based bank invested in upgraded landscaping, painting, décor and equipment at the branch which they've operated since 2007.
"There was total community involvement behind our open house event," said Mary Rose Cuoco, manager of the Delaware Avenue branch. "The St. Lucie Chamber of Commerce, the local American Legion Post, Sheriff Ken Mascara, Fort Pierce Mayor Linda Hudson, County Commissioners Chris Dzadovsky and Kim Johnson, and so many customers and business leaders turned out to see what we have done at this branch."
Oculina Bank President Jeffrey Maffett and Executive Vice President Chris Russell led the ribbon cutting. American Legion Post 40 raised the flag and Donna Marie Cuoco sang the national anthem for the approximately 80 attendees.
Oculina Bank is a locally owned and managed full-service bank with eight locations from Sebastian to Palm City.
