Clark Lauritzen

Being a bank means so much more than specializing in deposits and loans. Banks have the distinct ability to serve as key connectors to stability, growth, and hope within their communities by helping support individuals, equipping business owners, participating in community development and elevating the spirit and quality of life for others.

At First National Bank we know that our success is dependent upon the success of our communities and we therefore strive to set a standard in banking that serves the greater good. Actively supporting our communities is an element of this standard that has been deeply embedded in our culture for 160 years.

As I look back on our community investments in 2016, I am proud of the strong partnerships and the meaningful impacts realized through dedicated community organizations, loyal customers and passionate employees. While this report shares both individual achievement and collective impact, it's also a reminder that work remains to be done. At First National Bank, we understand that there are many ways to serve our communities, but in all ways, it's a privilege we remain grateful for. We look forward to building upon our partnerships to maintain the success of our communities in 2017 and beyond.

Sincerely,

Clark Lauritzen
