Welcome from the President & CEO

Please allow me to take this opportunity to personally thank you for choosing our bank to handle your banking needs, as we strive to provide you with the best banking experience possible. I know a great amount of care goes into choosing a banker, and your decision reaffirms my belief in the old fashioned styles of banking. We believe our depositors enjoy the personal contact they receive at each one of our four locations. In addition, you may bank by telephone or the internet.

Be assured that the personal banking concept is our greatest commitment. We are a full service community bank offering deposit accounts, savings accounts, checking accounts, loans, internet banking, and other banking services that focus on you, the customer. We hope you will investigate our services, and feel free to use any of them we have designed to make your banking experience as enjoyable and comprehensive as possible.

In 2008, we celebrated our 80th anniversary as a home town community bank, and it is our goal to continue to provide you with the best service available. If there is any way I can help you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
