Message From the President - Dan Klahn

Message From the President - Dan Klahn

What is a community bank? I believe a community bank is a bank that understands its customers' and community's needs and is truly vested in their success. That is because the majority of a community bank's employees, officers, directors, and shareholders live and work in the communities they serve. They are your neighbors and friends, and your success is tied to their success. I am proud to say Community First Bank was one of the community banks that stepped up to the plate during the pandemic and truly put "Community First".
