Cake will be served.

Each year the Independent Community Bankers Association designates April as national Community Banking Month, drawing attention to the importance these institutions play in our local economies by taking deposits and lending the money back out to local businesses. There are more than 51,000 community banks nationwide, employing 700,000 Americans and financing more than 50 percent of small business loans and 90 percent of agricultural loans.

Throughout the month of April, CNB customers who come into the branch will have the opportunity to register to win one of 7 gift baskets including local items from each of our branch communities. The drawing will be held on Friday, April 29 following the Financial Fair.
