Community Investment

Of Course We Support the Community. We Live Here, Too.

One of the great things about banking with a community bank is that you can be sure that we’re all seeing the things you see, cheering for the same teams you cheer for, eating at the same restaurants you eat at, and supporting the same organization you support. We’re one of you and we couldn’t be happier.

We have a vested interest in making sure our community continues to thrive the best it can. Not only because strong communities mean strong businesses, which in turn means strong local banks; but also because we live here and we want to live in a great place and we want our kids to grow up in a great place.
