Entrepreneurial Spirit of Community Celebrated

by Len Lathrop

Enterprise Bank’s Richard Main presents check to Beverly Glynn representing the Salem Depot Restoration Project. Applauding the donation is Susan Covey of Enterprise’s Salem office and Sonny Tylus, a Salem community activist.

The Salem business community was treated to a very special event last Wednesday night at DeVito’s On Main, when Enterprise Bank hosted the four-year anniversary of their Salem office with an appreciation event called a “Celebration of the Entrepreneurial Spirit in Our Community.”

Stephen DeVito, Patty Dell Isolo, and their entire team worked to prepare the new restaurant’s completion so that the office staff of Enterprise Bank Salem — Susan Covey, Peter Rayno, Sheryl Parsons, and Mary Reese — could host the first event at 67 Main Street.

Over 400 invited guests, who included Enterprise Bank’s business customers and dignitaries from the Salem community, were greeted at the door by Richard Main, President, Jack Clancy, CEO, Susan Covey, and Mary Reese.  A feast for all included a signature wine station, open bar, a buffet featuring steamship rounds of beef, veal marsala, chicken DeVito (stuffed chicken with prosciutto and provolone), boneless turkey loin, assorted side dishes, and a signature bread display.

The highlight of the event was the presentation of a check by Enterprise Bank’s Richard Main to Beverly Glynn representing the Salem Depot Restoration Project.

“Amazing” was heard as a comment about the food and the evening.  The night ended on a positive note as every guest received an executive portfolio from the bank as a parting gift.

The event was a great success for Enterprise Bank and a great kickoff for DeVito’s On Main.
