Photos: 3rd Federal Bank grounbreaking

On Friday, Oct. 30,  3rd Federal Bank, which already has a branch at Woodhaven, unveiled its plans for a new branch in the same center at Woodhaven and Knights roads. There was a ceremonial groundbreaking attended by the bank’s board of directors, the building contractors, Mayor Michael Nutter and several members of his staff, and members of the community. Bank president and CEO Kent Lufkin spoke and announced Mayor Nutter, who also spoke before the two gentlemen did a ceremonial dirt dig and toss, twice, to accommodate the photographers.
