ALBION – Workers from N. Choops Painting in Lancaster are giving the three-story Five Star Bank site in Albion a fresh coat of paint. The new color is darker than before. Painters also are painting the medallions up high a blue that matches the company logo.

“I love the color,” said Wendy Hinkley, the Albion branch manager. “It stands out more and it looks classy.”

The front on the building facing 102 North Main St. has two rows of medallions that will be painted blue. N. Choops may be able to finish the project later this week.

“It’s going to look sharp,” Hinkley said.

The project is partially funded with a NY Main Street grant, which provided matching funding for several other downtown projects.
