Hyperion Bank Adopts Don Quixote Statue


Don Quixote Statue

Being a part of our community means more than just providing the personalized, customer focused service you can only get from a community bank like Hyperion Bank.  It means helping our community grow, prosper and improve.

It's about giving back and investing in our community. 


Recently, Hyperion Bank has arranged with a local

landscaper to improve the appearance of a very special neighbor.  He has come to be known as our mascot and represents to us the power and the promise of Main Street banking versus Wall Street banking.  He is Don Quixote de la Mancha.  We hope you will notice the next time you are in the neighborhood that his planting beds are cleaned and mulched and the roses pruned so that our wonderful friend

at 2nd & Girard will always look his best.


Know the History

Ever wonder how the bronze statue of Don Quixote got there?  The Spanish city of Ciudad Real in the region of La Mancha gifted this 14-foot bronze sculpture to the Spanish-speaking people of South Kensington in 1997 as a token of friendship and cooperation between the two communities. The idea of the sculpture was conceived in 1994 when a visiting delegation of Spanish businessmen met with local representatives of the American Street Empowerment Zone; both groups saw an opportunity to increase economic exchange between pan-Latino South Kensington and Spain. Placed at the gateway to the American Street Empowerment Zone, Quixote overlooks the razed site of Schmidt's Brewery - the quintessential reminder of Kensington's former industrial might - and embodies the hopes and aspirations of a neighborhood on the rise.

Notice of Changes in Temporary FDIC Insurance for Transaction Accounts

All funds in a "noninterest-bearing transaction account" are insured in full by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation from December 31, 2010, through December 31, 2012. This temporary unlimited coverage is in addition to, and separate from, the coverage of at least $250,000 available to depositors under the FDIC's general deposit insurance rules.

The term "noninterest-bearing transaction account" includes a traditional checking account or demand deposit account on which the insured depository institution pays no interest. It also includes Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts ("IOLTAs"). It does not include other accounts, such as traditional checking or demand deposit accounts that may earn interest, NOW accounts and money-market deposit accounts which remain protected under the general deposit insurance rules.

For more information about temporary FDIC insurance coverage of transaction accounts, visit www.fdic.govHyperion Bank is a Member of the FDIC.
