“We are one of just a few local community banks left in the valley and pride ourselves on personal customer service and going the extra mile for our customers,” stated Peter Clements, Bank President. “We want our community to be strong, and sometimes businesses need additional assistance. We’re here to help.”
During the event several of the same employees were there that also attended the original ribbon cutting 20 years ago. After the formal ribbon cutting the First State Bank and Trust team tried to duplicate the 1998 picture, standing in some of the same places they did 20 years ago in front of the same building. Lots of laughter and memories were shared on a beautiful day in front of the bank.
First State Bank and Trust takes excellent care of their customers and gives back thousands of dollars to the community yearly. They are the same community bank with local ownership and management that was established more than one hundred years ago.
