PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Bank will celebrate the  grand opening of its newest full-service branch located at 99 North St. with a ribbon cutting ceremony and family day event.

First, the ribbon cutting ceremony will be on Jan. 16 at 11 a.m. During the event the Berkshire Bank Foundation will present two $1,500 grants – one to Goodwill Industries of the Berkshires to support the organization’s Suit YourSelf program and one to the Eleanor Sonsini Animal Shelter. 
 
Then on Saturday, Jan. 19 from 9 a.m. until noon, the festivities continue with a family day celebration, open to the public. This event will feature special contests, giveaways and refreshments including a Treasure Chest Key Promotion offering community members a chance to win an iPad mini, cash or a gas card. Also, Mr. Twisty will be available to make balloon characters and children's author Ty Allen Jackson will read and sign copies of his books. The celebration culminates with a free showing of "The Wizard of Oz" at the Beacon Theater Sunday, Jan. 20 at 11 a.m. Seats are limited. Those interested may stop by the 99 North Street branch beginning Jan. 16 to reserve tickets and pick them up on Saturday, Jan. 19, at the family day celebration.
 
The downtown Pittsfield branch is the third in Berkshire County to feature Berkshire Bank's new customer centric design and enhanced teller technology. Rather than traditional teller lines, the new design allows for more personalized service, faster transactions and improved accuracy. The branch, complete with an open floor plan and AMEB Café, also includes a multi-functional community room, offering a free space for local small business and community members to hold meetings or activities. The community room includes teleconferencing capabilities, free Wi-Fi, high definition television, blue-ray DVD player, Playstation and seating for up to 30.
