Thank you, Sarah, and good morning, everyone. Great to have you all with us. Welcome to our second quarter 2020 conference call and webcast. Once again, our comments today, as with prior quarters, supplement our earnings release we filed yesterday.

It certainly has been a challenge this past quarter for our company as we've navigated this pandemic. Even as we were able to close over $224 million in residential mortgage loans, processing $83 million in PPP loans that helped save nearly 9,000 local jobs, while successfully closing our first acquisition in over 12 years. By all measures, a great quarter. Ensuring that all of our customers could have their financial needs met in a safe and efficient manner require the dedication of each of our staff members, and I must say they've responded quite well.

Highlights for this quarter, including a $1.1 million pretax mortgage servicing rights impairment and $1.2 million in merger-related costs include: Net income of $3.7 million, up $1.1 million or 39% increase over the prior year quarter, and when adjusted for non-GAAP items, net income was $5.5 million, up $2.3 million or 73%; adjusted return on average assets was a robust 188 basis points, up from the prior year quarter of just 109; net interest income of $8.9 million was flat to the prior year as our 5% reduction in interest income was offset
