Renovations underway at Newark’s Laurel House

Representatives from Lyons National Bank presented a check to Laurel House Board Members on October 25, as part of a $15,000 pledge from LNB to assist with the costs to ready the home for care giving. Renovations to the Fair Street home, located near the Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, are now in progress.

“As a community bank, LNB feels very connected to the communities we serve,” said Robert Schick, CEO and Chairman of the Board at LNB. “The Laurel House is a strong example of individuals working together to make a difference in their community, and LNB is proud to support such a worthwhile project.”

LNB Board Director, Jim Homburger and his wife, Peg, are major supporters of the Laurel House project and have pledged a significant gift to the effort.
