Carver Federal Savings Bank hosted a grand re-opening celebration with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its Crown Heights location on April 19.

Victor Taliaferrow, branch manager, applied the golden scissors to the ribbon along with Michael Pugh, president of Carver Bank; invited guests including Stepanie Wilchfort, chief executive officer of the Brooklyn Childrens’ Museum; elected officials Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D–Crown Heights) and Sen. Jesse Hamilton (D–Crown Heights); staff, and members of the community in attendance.

After opening the doors to the newly remodeled branch, invited guests were treated to a cocktail party and delicious hors d’oeuvres. Completing the festivities, Taliaferrow, on behalf of the bank, presented a $20,000 check to Wilchfort to benefit the Childrens’ Museum.
