April is Community Banking Month. CNB to Celebrate with Bank from Anywhere Promotion and Community Shred Days
In honor of Community Banking Month, Citizens National Bank is offering a “Bank from Anywhere” sweepstakes to its customers during the month of April. Each person who enrolls in a new online or mobile banking product or downloads our CardValet debit card app or completes a mobile deposit will be automatically entered to win 1 of 3 grand prize Kindle Fire tablets or 1 of 7 second prize 32” rolling duffle bags. In addition to the sweepstakes, each branch is giving away a gift basket including items from each of our branch communities. Anyone who visits a branch may enter to win the Community gift baskets. The drawing for the baskets will be held on Friday, April 28.
Finally, in an effort to promote identity theft awareness, our branches are each hosting a Community Shred Day, where the public is invited to protect their identity by bringing their personal paper documents to be shredded.

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.
