We’re proud to be a community bank.

What does it mean to be a community bank today? It means genuinely knowing our neighbors, and working to lift each other up. It means being concerned with how well our communities are doing.

That’s at the heart of what we do. By supporting local businesses and working with families to protect and grow their money, we make our neighborhoods even stronger. That’s what being in the community means to us.
