The Board and Management have been monitoring the coronavirus situation and have worked through scenarios including Pandemic plans and procedures established to protect our customers, employees and community. In an effort to provide effective product and service delivery while balancing the health and safety of our community, we have made the decision to close our lobby effective Wednesday March 18thand will transition to conducting business via our drive thru. Lobby accessibility will be made available by appointment only. Additionally, our adjusted hours of operation will be Monday-Friday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Saturday 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
