What Community Banking Means To Me
We serve and enrich our neighbors and neighborhood. We value people. Banking is a relationship, not a transaction.

I show up for my community by caring, listening, participating, leading, and connecting. I volunteer my time and talents.
Annie’s Advice For Local Business Owners
Many businesses are facing higher costs and lower profits. They are trying to balance quality with growth. Remember that rates and cost can always rise further, so conduct stress tests for various challenges. This will help you prepare for whatever comes next. Smart business owners are always prepared for obstacles, for a rainy day, and for a drought.
One bright side to higher interest rates is the ability to earn more on your savings. Invest your extra business funds in a Money Market or CD. That will benefit both your bottom line and your community.
