To Our Valued Customers:
You may have heard news of an online username and password vulnerability bug, otherwise known as the ‘Heartbleed Bug’, which has affected popular websites that use open-source software, called OpenSSL.
We want to assure you that Lake Sunapee Bank’s provider for our web site and online banking system does not use OpenSSL authentication and uses a service that is not affected by the vulnerability.
However, it is reported that these vulnerable ‘OpenSSL’ servers account for about two-thirds of all websites so this is a good time to remind everyone to check your statements closely for any suspicious activity. If you see anything out of the ordinary, contact our Customer Service Center right away at 800-310-6356.

Lake Sunapee Bank and Charter Trust Company Join Forces in New Hanover Location on South Main Street
March 31, 2014 marks the opening of Lake Sunapee Bank and Charter Trust Company’s combined new office at 68 South Main Street in Hanover. Previously located on South Street since 2007, Lake Sunapee Bank took advantage of this Main Street site because of its highly visible location. Charter Trust has been located at 17 1/2 Lebanon Street.
The office will have full-service banking including a walk-up ATM, night depository, and a dedicated commercial and mortgage lender on site. Charter Trust will offer their wealth management services in a very private section of the office. Both companies will share a state-of-the art conference room, complete with video conferencing and “smart glass” technology, making the room completely private when needed.
Doug Tengdin, Chief Investment Officer of Charter Trust, says “We are very excited to be moving back to Main Street. Having been part of the Hanover business community for decades, we look forward to the vibrant atmosphere and business climate. We think that our new location will be a benefit to our clients, our staff, and the community.”
Stephen R. Theroux, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lake Sunapee Bank stated: “The coming together of Charter and Lake Sunapee Bank under one roof in this very visible and convenient location in Hanover provides access for one-stop life-cycle financial solutions to the local community. Our commitment to a modern and state-of-the-art facility enhances the customer experience and builds upon our many collective years of serving the Hanover community.”

On the morning of Monday, December 2, 2013 The Nashua Bank, a division of Lake Sunapee Bank, celebrated the opening of its second banking office at 115 Daniel Webster Highway in Nashua. Several bank employees, as well as members of the City of Nashua gathered around to cut the official ribbon, marking the opening of their newest location.
The 2000-square-foot office includes a drive-up, and encompasses a new style of banking that incorporates an open environment instead of a traditional teller line. The branch utilizes bank specialists who are “relationship bankers,” allowing customers to visit one person for all their needs. In addition, the office offers free wifi. Be sure to stop by both Nashua branches throughout the month of January for free giveaways, product specials, and to enter for your chance to win an iPad air. While doing all this, be sure to have a complimentary cup of coffee!
When asked his thoughts on the new branch and what it means to the Nashua area, Frank Teas, Senior Vice President and Director of Banking Services, said, "I am thrilled with the opening of our second office in Nashua to help further our mission of providing relationship banking to businesses and individuals within the greater Nashua marketplace."
Gathered for the ribbon cutting are Frank Teas, SVP, Director of Banking Services; Mayor Donnalee Lozeau, Mayor of Nashua, Amanda O’Leary, Branch Manager; Stephen R. Theroux, President and CEO of Lake Sunapee Bank; and Chris Williams, President and CEO for the Nashua Chamber of Commerce.
