LETHBRIDGE, AB, Dec. 8, 2012 /CNW/ - TD Canada Trust celebrated today, the 
grand opening of their new state-of-the-art branch in Lethbridge Highlands

range of interpretive programs, it serves the community of Lethbridge to 
provide first-hand opportunities to experience the local natural environment. 
"This marks the fourth TD Canada Trust branch to open in the City of 
Lethbridge. To show our appreciation and commitment to the community, we've 
chosen to support an organization that is important to residents," said 
Monique Bateman, Senior Vice President, Prairie Region, TD Canada Trust. "As 
the community grows, we're growing along with it, and we plan to do so in a 
sustainable manner, both in how we operate and through our continued support 
of local environmental initiatives." 
"We are very thrilled to join with TD and the TD Friends of the Environment 
Foundation. The commitment TD demonstrates towards the environment on all 
levels complements our mission and vision of having our community appreciate 
nature and to want to learn more about the environment starting locally," says 
Becky Little, Volunteer and Development Coordinator, Helen Schuler Nature 
Centre. "We are looking forward to having TD on our journey with the Extreme 
by Nature program and welcoming them into our family of staff, volunteers and 
community partners." 
TD opened its first branch in Lethbridge nearly 65 years ago. The new 
full-service branch is open seven days a week to serve customers at their 
convenience, and has a number of unique features:

        moving financial specialists from behind desks and right into
        the presence of customers.
    --  A community boardroom designed for use by groups of customers
        including families and TD partners. This room is available
        free-of-charge and includes business services such as video
        conferencing capabilities, a printer and a fax machine.
    --  A community wall shares a pictorial story about the local
        area. The current display features projects funded by the TD
        Friends of the Environment Foundation and includes space for
        community groups to post flyers about upcoming events.
    --  Digital Displays mounted throughout the branch to provide
        customers with current information about TD products and
    --  A Customer Lounge with a coffee station lets customers wait in
        comfort if they arrive early for an appointment or are waiting
        for their friends or family to complete their banking.
