Compass Community Bank is hosting a grand opening celebration Friday at its new branch, located at 988 Commercial St. An official ribbon cutting by Mayor Willis Van Dusen is scheduled for 3 p.m. The public is welcome. It is the second location to open within the last 10 months, and follows the opening of the bank's main office in Seaside.
Following a tradition set at the Seaside grand opening in May, guests at the Astoria grand opening may submit the United Way agency of their choice in a drawing to receive a $1,000 donation. The winning agency will be drawn at the end of the day at the bank, and a donation of $1,000 will be made to the winning United Way agency.
