The Old Saybrook Chamber of Commerce announced the 2018 Annual Award recipients at its annual meeting, held December 5, 2018 at The Kate. The Chamber recognizes outstanding achievement among its membership in three categories: 


Business of the Year: Guilford Savings Bank


Guilford Savings Bank has been serving the financial needs of individuals, families, and businesses in Connecticut for 143 years. They are dedicated to helping customers achieve their financial goals while maintaining a core value of giving back to the communities they serve.


At the helm of the Old Saybrook office is Branch Manager David Carswell, who says it's the employees that make the difference. Focusing on volunteerism, Guilford Savings Bank employees can be found swinging hammers at a Habitat for Humanity build and staffing booths at local events large and small. GSB employees serve on more than 60 Boards of directors.


GSB also supports our communities financially. Their generous sponsorships include financial literacy programs, American Red Cross blood drives, summer concerts on the historic Old Saybrook town green and a variety of major fundraising events held by local nonprofits, including our Chili Fest.


Their support throughout the community is wide-spread and greatly appreciated by all!
