WCB Supports Community Development Initiatives
Throughout 2017, the City of Woburn is celebrating the 375th anniversary of its incorporation as a city. The occasion represents an extraordinary opportunity to recognize the rich heritage of this great City. Winchester Co-operative Bank made a contribution to the City to ensure the celebratory events throughout the year can be enjoyed by all. While WCB does not have a branch within the City of Woburn, we value the strong relationships we have with so many Woburn residents and businesses.
