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".
Boscobel, WI-based Community First Bank (CFB) and Madison, WI-based Wisconsin Bank & Trust, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Heartland Financial USA, Inc. (NASDAQ: HTLF), jointly announced today that they have entered into a purchase and assumption agreement, pursuant to which CFB will acquire the Wisconsin Bank & Trust branch located in Lancaster, Wisconsin and will assume substantially all of the deposits of the branch.
We have been made aware of customers receiving automated phone calls in which the caller claims to be from Community First Bank to review accounts and talk about COVID assistance. These calls are fraudulent, and we have reported the scam to our local police department. Please note, we will never ask for specific account information over the phone (including numbers, names and passwords). If you have any questions or concerns, or feel you may have given out personal information to someone not associated with CFB, please call your local branch directly.
Our January give-back to celebrate our 150th Anniversary was to support local organizations in each of our markets with $150 donations. We're so grateful to share our celebration with our communities!
To celebrate our 150th anniversary this year, we're holding a sweepstakes in each branch each quarter for some awesome items! This quarter, each branch put together a basket of local items to go with a brand new Keurig K-Supreme Plus single serve coffee maker.
2021 is a very exciting year for Community First Bank – we are celebrating our 150th anniversary!
