TTC’s 25th Anniversary

Pictured at right are Ellen, Mark and Ann Knackendoffel, enjoying the perfect weather and grand celebration of The Trust Company’s 25th anniversary. We were absolutely thrilled with the turnout for the hog roast and party at our home office in Manhattan on September 29, 2017. We were joined by representatives from all of our branch offices, plus too many clients, friends, and associates to count.

Special thanks go to Jason Walker, Trust Officer & Relationship Manager from our Lawrence office! Jason came over a day early to help prepare the hogs (earning his apprentice badge) and also did much of the “heavy lifting” on other preparations. The photo below captures Mark and Jason doing some of the literal heavy lifting of putting a hog back on the fire.


We are thankful for all the support that we’ve been shown over the years, and look forward to many more mutually prosperous years to come. By the way, if you didn’t have a chance to sign the guest book, feel free to stop by and do so!
