Message from the President:
One of the things I enjoy about the Holidays is the opportunity for reflection it offers us. We cannot help but to look back and take stock in the year. It’s natural to measure up where we are now against where we were a year ago. This usually results in feeling grateful for our families, friends, jobs and new opportunities.
It’s no different running a bank. As I measure budgets to actual performance, the thing that stands out is how many people have made the very difficult “bank switch”. It is a hard thing for people to switch banks and I am in awe of how many relationships we have established throughout this year (and last).
I am very grateful for the incredible number of new customers this year, all the many long-standing and loyal customers, and the fantastic staff that make this bank tick. Del Norte Bank would not thrive like it is without all of the friends (indeed, family) in those groups. For that, I am grateful.
Merry Christmas to each of you and have a safe New Year!
