Apr 29, 2021
Presenting a $4,000 donation to Harbor Fest on behalf of First National Bank and First National Wealth Management are Wealth Management Business Development Officer Niki Janczura and bank Vice President and Business Development Officer Michelle Curtis, Vice President and Commercial Loan Officer Ed Varney, and Belfast Vice President and Bank Manager Jennifer Boynton. Accepting for Belfast Rotary are club president Richard Koralek, and Belfast Harbor Fest Sponsor Coordinator Robert Adler and Co-Coordinator Mickey Sirota.

Belfast — Belfast’s newest bank is the “Ship Owner” major sponsor of one of the city’s biggest and oldest continuous public events. First National Bank, located at Reny’s Plaza, and First National Wealth Management will sponsor the Maine bicentennial edition of Belfast Rotary Club’s Harbor Fest, to be held on the Belfast waterfront in mid-August.

With their donation of $4,000, the two First National entities will be sole sponsors of Harbor Fest’s National Boatbuilding Challenge and 5K “Bug Run” road race.

“It is our pleasure to support important community events such as Harbor Fest,” said Tony C. McKim, president and CEO of First Bancorp, parent company of both First National Bank and First National Wealth Management. “We look forward to being there in August and meeting Rotarians and members of our community. Thank you to Belfast Rotary Club for all the work you do for the Belfast Community.”

First National Wealth Management is a division of First National Bank, an independent community bank with 17 offices in Waldo, Knox, Lincoln, Hancock, Washington and Penobscot counties.

Belfast Rotary Club, founded in 1929, is one of the largest and most active clubs along the Midcoast. Its motto is “Service Above Self.” The club’s nearly 75 members provide more than $120,000 in charitable gifts each year, including support for seven local food pantries and food kitchens, more than $80,000 in scholarships to area high school students and holiday gifts to more than 150 children from low-income families.

Belfast Harbor Fest is one of the club's largest fundraising efforts, which also include a charity golf tournament, pancake breakfasts and auctions. Belfast Rotary meets every Wednesday at noon at the Shrine Club on Northport Avenue in Belfast, and via Zoom.
