Have nothing to do with stupid and senseless controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kindly to everyone, an apt teacher, patient, correcting opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant that they will repent and come to know the truth.
II Timothy 2: 23-25 (NRSV)

College financial advisor changing name

Our financial advisor firm is changing its name. The Conte Browne Group will be changing their business name from The Conte Browne Group to Capital View Wealth Management. This change will not affect your accounts or your relationship with them in any way. They will be providing the same excellent  service for which they were selected a year ago. Denny Browne, Rob Teague and Andy Grace continue to be the financial educators working with our employees and the retirement plan. 

Their office location is also changing. The new address is 212 South Front Street, Wormleysburg, PA 17043. This move will take place in July. Until then, they will remain at the current 2009 Market Street location. The new phone number is 717-412-4966 and you can begin using this number immediately even though the physical location has not yet changed. 

Aside from the company name and location, all other details and structures of your interactions with our financial advisory group (including current contracts and agreements) remain unchanged. If you have any further questions regarding the change, please feel free to contact Denny Browne at the new number listed above or via email at
