Section 8.        Other Events

Item 8.01.        Other Events

   Salisbury  Bancorp,  Inc.  ("Salisbury" or the "Company") (NYSE Alternext US:
SAL),  parent  company of Salisbury  Bank and Trust Company  ("Bank"),  reported
today that the Bank has prepaid a $19 million  borrowing  from the Federal  Home
Loan Bank of Boston at a cost of  approximately  $570,000,  net of tax. The Bank
took such  action as part of a program  to  restructure  a portion of the Bank's
borrowings.  The borrowings  which were at a rate of 5.97% will be replaced with
new Federal Home Loan Bank advances that have lower interest rates and a revised
maturity  structure.  While the  prepayment  will result in a one time after tax
expense of  approximately  $570,000 in the fourth calendar  quarter of 2008, the
Company still  expects to report net income for the quarter  ended  December 31,

         This  restructuring  is  expected  to  result in a  decrease  in future
borrowing  expense which is intended to increase  earnings per share in 2009 and
future  years.  After  careful  analysis  the  Company has  determined  that the
borrowing  restructuring  was an  advisable  course of action  given the current
interest rate environment,  and the opportunities to reprice that are present in
the market.  The intended future benefit of this restructuring is improvement in
earnings per share due to a decrease in future borrowing expense.

         Salisbury Bancorp's sole subsidiary,  Salisbury Bank and Trust Company,
is a  community  bank.  The  Company  has assets in excess of $480  million  and
capital in excess of $38 million and has served the  communities of northwestern
Connecticut  and  proximate  communities  in  New  York  and  Massachusetts  for
approximately  150 years.  Salisbury Bank and Trust Company is  headquartered in
Lakeville,  Connecticut and operates full service branches in Canaan,  Salisbury
and Sharon as well as  Lakeville,  Connecticut,  South  Egremont and  Sheffield,
Massachusetts  and Dover Plains,  New York. The Bank offers a full complement of
consumer and business  banking products and services as well as trust and wealth
advisory services.
