Valley Green Bank opens 3rd area office in Radnor

Valley Green Bank this week will expand its reach into the Delaware Valley with a new regional office that will specialize in lending to commercial and industrial clients.

Bob Marino, a banker with 26 years experience, will lead a Radnor-based team of National Penn Bank transplants that has already developed a strong relationship with large businesses in the region.

“A small bank gives us the opportunity to make our clients big fish in a small pond,” Marino said in a phone interview on Monday, adding that his team’s business model represented a perfect “complement” to Valley Green’s small-business-oriented loan portfolio.

TREE TIME The Mt. Airy Business Association and Green in Chestnut Hill (GRINCH) held their first annual Christmas tree recycling effort at Allens Lane Art Center.  More than 260 trees were saved from landfills and made into mulch that will be ready for use this spring at the art center.  A few recyclers left after dropping off their own trees and went to collect others that they saw along the streets. 

Kim Miller, president of MABA (left) and the Local’s  “Ecologic” columnist, Jennifer Reed, volunteered for the tree mulching.

Columnist’s ‘Best Restaurants’

(The restaurants and photos are listed randomly, not in any order of preference.)

Second of two articles

•Roller’s Flying Fish, 8142 Germantown Ave. (at Hartwell Lane). According to former employees I have spoken to over the years, Paul Roller is probably the most difficult merchant in Chestnut Hill to work for. When I asked him a while back about his reputation as a tyrant, he replied, “This is not a popularity contest. The customers have to get what they’re paying for, and I have to make all employees understand that.”

A program that changed students’ lives

When I started college in August 2000, I was, for lack of a better word, directionless. I was presumably moving forward with my life, but like most freshmen who weren’t groomed from age 2 to be a professional golfer or a U.S. senator, my plans for the future were either wildly contrived or laughably vague.

Hosts fall at 37th Snowball Tourney

Neither team from the host institution reached the finals of the 37th Annual Norwood Fontbonne Academy Snowball Tournament last weekend, but there was plenty of lively hoops action all the way through the championship round, where the finals in both the boys’ and girls’ brackets were decided by single-digit margins.
