Windsor, VA … Farmers Bank has been part of the western Hampton Roads community for 100 years. In honor of this amazing milestone, the Bank is hosting a year of celebrations and invites the community to participate in their “Century of Memories” contest. Here’s how it works:
Area residents are invited to bring items from the past 100 years as well as Farmers Bank memorabilia to their local Farmers Bank branch. A photo will be taken and, with your permission, may be posted in the branch and on Farmers Bank’s social media platforms. A random winner will be selected each month at each bank branch to receive $100 in honor of the bank’s 100th year. In addition, a grand prize winner will be chosen in November and will receive $1,000.
Objects such as medals, photos, letters, coins, antiques, maps, clothing, checkbooks and savings passbooks, and anything else associated with Farmers Bank and/or the past century would be welcomed.
“The legacy of the past century lives on in countless ways and not least in the memories, objects and artifacts handed down through the generations that are still treasured today,” said Richard J. Holland, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Farmers Bank. “The items will remind us all of how our lives have changed and yet one thing remains the same–the prompt, courteous service of Farmers Bank. We look forward to seeing what our neighbors bring in as we celebrate 100 years of treasured friendships and service,” he added.
Much has happened in the past 100 years. In 1919, Woodrow Wilson was President of the United States. A first-class postage stamp cost two cents. And two products were introduced that changed lives: rotary dial telephones and the pop-up toaster.
Here in Windsor, five local business leaders planted the seed for a new bank. Shirley T. Holland, who was a recent college graduate, became the first cashier and later president of the locally-owned financial institution. Farmers Bank was and remains a community bank focused on customer service.
This memorabilia contest will be one of many special activities taking place throughout 2019 in honor of Farmers Bank’s 100 Years Strong campaign For further information, please go to: www.farmersbankva.com.
Farmers Bank, founded in 1919, is headquartered in Windsor, VA, and is a full-service community bank which operates seven branches throughout Tidewater Virginia. Additional information is available at the company’s website, www.farmersbankva.com.
USA PATRIOT ACT
IMPORTANT INFORMATION:ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING OR CHANGING AN ACCOUNT
Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT ACT requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
This federal requirement applies to all new customers. This information is used to assist the United States government in the fight against the funding of terrorism and money-laundering activities.
What this means to you:
When you open an account, we will ask each person for their name, physical address, mailing address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify them.
Additionally, FinCEN has adopted what they describe as a “two pronged” approach to beneficial ownership.
The ownership prong includes all natural persons with 25% or more direct or indirect equity interest in a legal entity while the control prong is a single individual with significant managerial responsibility (the Rule says “control, manage or direct”) over the legal entity.
We will ask to see each person’s driver’s license and other identifying documents, and copy or record information from each of them.
