Letter from President

Spring has sprung, and it’s time to enjoy all that it brings! As we start to see our days getting longer and our outdoor activities increase, we need to remember to be mindful of our surroundings and finances.

In the community, we need to be safe and continue to pay attention to our driving as we enjoy the warmer weather and the aromas of spring. Farmers will be driving slow moving vehicles to and from their fields. The children, excited at the opportunity to play outside, will be riding their bikes and playing in their yards. As the last few weeks of school wrap up, they’ll be in a hurry to get home and outside, we ask that you obey and be more alert near crosswalks.

In our finances, we need to be sure to scan our bank statements and credit reports for suspicious activity, verifying all charges and entries. Other thoughts: open a checking account, learn how to utilize a debit card and manage money, save. Protect your identity. Be sure to not share account information with the wrong people. Question your bank on cybersecurity awareness and how to keep your personal information safe.

As always, as we welcome spring, and look ahead to graduations, holidays and special occasions, remember to enjoy family and friends.

Sincerely,

Dale G Deiters
President/CEO
