BOYERTOWN, Pa. - Two months before its fourth anniversary, HomeTowne Heritage Bank said Thursday it has agreed to sell itself to National Penn Bancshares Inc. for $37.6 million in cash.

Wayne R. Weidner, National Penn's chairman and chief executive officer, said $142 million-asset HomeTowne Heritage, of Intercourse, would keep its name and operate as a division of National Penn, which has $3.3 billion of assets. National Penn's branch in New Holland would be converted into an office of HomeTowne, which would then have four branches in Lancaster County.
