Where you choose to bank matters. Your choice of bank is your vote on where your money goes. Are your hard-earned deposits reinvested back into your local community? Or are they sent off to a banking hub in another state or halfway around the world?
During April, which is Community Banking Month, I encourage you to think about where you bank and how your money has the power to make a meaningful impact on your community.
Here are a few reasons why:
-- Community banks respect the communities they serve by doing right by their customers and community.

-- Community banks are relationship lenders. They know their customers and understand their financial needs.
-- Community banks give back and take pride in making our communities stronger through various service projects.
Making our communities better and stronger is something that we all have a stake in. We hope you will join us in continuing to make community banks thrive and prosper for years to come.
