F&M BANK HONORED FOR COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
The Minnesota Bankers Association (MBA) recently recognized F&M Bank for their community involvement. Banks play an important and vital role in their communities, and to honor and recognize their involvement, the MBA created the Community Champion recognition program. Michael Dunn, President of F&M, recognized the Minnesota team effort: “Our Lino Lakes and Vadnais Heights people are the best! While we’ve only been in the market 3 years, they have exemplified the F & M culture and this is a great effort of giving back to the community.”
F & M was only one of seventeen Minnesota banks honored for their community involvement.
As well as volunteering within the local community at events such as Relay For Life; F&M Bank holds a summer “Have Lunch on Us” where all community members are welcome to attend a Bar-B-Q style picnic lunch at the bank. This is a great way to feel part of the community and to get to know people within the local community. Other organizations and programs supported by F&M Bank employees include Junior Achievement, Teach Children to Save, Alexandria House, Shoreview Area Housing Initiative, Centennial Area Education Foundation, White Bear Chamber fundraisers, and assisting at Feed My Starving Children.
Minnesota Bankers Association President & CEO, Joe Witt, congratulated the recipients and stated “Minnesota banks are the heart and soul of their communities. Whenever you see a successful community project in Minnesota, you can be sure that the local bankers are actively involved, providing their support and expertise.”
