Greetings & Happy Holidays!
The Bank recently hosted the 2nd annual Silver Lake Bank National Upland Classic Series Dog Trial in November on my ranch north of Dover. The trials included four separate events; open pointing and flushing, and amateur pointing and flushing with the top three runs in each category placing in the competition. Watching the dogs work is a real treat! Thanks to my family members and staff who organized and worked this fun event.
Your new ’chip’ debit card will be mailed to you at the end of January. Good news! Your card number and PIN number will stay the same. Chip card transactions offer you advanced security in-store and at ATMs by making every transaction unique. If the card data and one-time code are stolen, the information can’t be used to create counterfeit cards and commit fraud.
I am excited to announce our decision to undergo a core and online banking conversion scheduled for April. This upgrade will provide enhancements to your banking experience including the ability to see your check images online, improved eStatement and eNotice delivery and realtime balances for ATM and debit card processing. We will provide timely communication to keep you informed of upcoming changes.
Our staff has been busily volunteering within the communities we serve. Staff at our Lawrence branch participated in a Bowlathon to raise funds for Junior Achievement. Bert Haflich, Gage Branch Manager, headed up a team for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Lake Shawnee. Kerry Martin, HR Manager, is leading the SLB team working on a tree for the Festival of Trees fundraiser for Sheltered Living. In October, we were pleased to present a check for $3,212.60 to Silver Lake School principal, Brad Womack. These funds were generated from the use of Silver Lake Eagle debit cards. The School District receives $.05 per each signature based debit card transaction. There is no cost to the school or you! If you’d like to learn more about our school loyalty debit card programs, please contact us.
As 2016 comes to a close, I wish to extend my best wishes for a memorable holiday season with family and friends! Thanks to all of you for your business, loyalty and support. It is our privilege to serve you.
