Making every dollar stretch as far as it can is something community organizations are challenged with each day. At BankFive, we want to help you do just that. That’s why we have a community conference room in our Bristol branch that’s open to groups like yours at no charge.
The conference room can accommodate up to eight people and has audio conferencing equipment should you want to include others in your meeting from remote locations. The room is available for a special meeting/seminar or ongoing monthly meetings.
To take advantage of this free service, just stop by or contact our office at 401-410-2960 at least five business days in advance of your meeting and let us know what date and time you want to use it and how many people we can expect. We will do our best to accommodate your request.
Our free conference room is just another way we strive to be an active member of our community. We hope you will take advantage of this service. And we hope it will have a positive impact on your organization and its efforts.
As always, you’re invited to also take advantage of all the banking services we have at our branch, which is open seven days a week.

Located at 1 State Street in Bristol, the Judge Roy Bean Saloon offers casual dining with beautiful views of the bay. It’s understandable that co-owners, Zack Rivers and Randy Ross fell in love with the location. On a nice summer day, the windows come out so that you can enjoy the summer breeze and view. The beautiful woodwork and inviting ambience make Judge Roy Bean Saloon, a great place to meet friends while enjoying exceptional food and drinks. The food is made from scratch using local ingredients. Chef Randy Ross has created an interesting menu with items such as the Truffled Wellington Burger, the JR Burger complete with bacon jam, fried egg & cheddar cheese and the Grilled Atlantic Salmon.
There’s live music offered 3 or 4 nights a week. There’s also an event room on the second floor. It’s great for rehearsal dinners or surprise parties and can accommodate 45 people for a sit down meal or up to a 100 people for a buffet. There are many different meal and buffet options offered.
So, if you haven’t been to the Judge Roy Bean Saloon recently, check it out. It’s a great location and the food is wonderful.
Wood’s Heating Service is now offering peace-of-mind to current and future customers with new protection plans: Wood’ Natural Gas Protection and Coolguard Service Plan.
Both protection plans afford customers ease of access to annual unit service without the costly diagnostic and tune-up fees. Plan users also save 15-percent on regular repair costs.
“More and more people have air conditioning than ever before,” said Arthur Dwyer, Sales Manager of East Providence-based Woods’ Heating Service. “And if the AC unit doesn’t get a tune-up regularly, damage to the home or property could result.”
With most air conditioning units situated in attics, without a regular tune-up Arthur said, the condensation pump might clog up. If that happens, water will get into the drain pan, and secondary drain pan.
“If the air doesn’t shut off properly, it could be like a river down through the ceiling, and that’s expensive to fix,” Arthur said.
With Wood’s Natural Gas Protection Plan, Arthur’s team inspects customer’s heating units annually, ensuring optimal efficiency use.
“If the system is having any issues, it would reduce the fuel efficiency,” he said. “We’ll check for anything that might reduce that, thereby reducing your overall fuel consumption costs. We want you to get the most bang for your buck.”
For more information on Wood’s Natural Gas Protection and the Coolguard Service Plan, call Wood’s Heating Service, 401-434-1487.
