April is National Community Banking Month and CCB will join thousands of independent bankers across the country to celebrate. Community banks, like CCB, make a combined effort to discuss with the public the important economic and social contributions their banks make in their hometowns, creating jobs and circulating money back into their communities. CCB IS CELEBRATING ALL MONTH LONG AT ALL LOCATIONS!!

CCB branches will celebrate community banking each day by accepting entries from friends and customers to win a large wheelbarrow filled with FUN items to help you jump start your Spring gardening! Included are Potting Soil, a Garden Tote, Garden Tools, Seed Starter Kits, a Kneeling Pad and various Bulbs. We’ll also be passing out packets of seeds while supplies last; Zinnia, California Poppy, Honey Bee Mix, Cosmos and Butterfly Garden Mix.

Look for branches to be decorated in a Spring Theme and join us! Spring has sprung and we are happy to serve existing customers and welcome new friends as customers. Customers can enjoy coming into the bank to see just how creative the folks at this independent community bank can be! Branches are in competition and displays will be judged by an outside source. The winning branch employees will receive a special prize.

“Independent banks operate differently than large, regional and national mega-banks,” states CCB COO and Marketing Director Joni Simcick. “Community banks are run by local people. Decisions are made locally, so loan requests don’t have to be sent to some distant corporate office. Most people who do business with CCB, think personal service is the best part of the relationship. I invite the public to stop by and enter to win.”
