Pendleton High School Sends Military Care Packages
As much as we love to give back to our communities, it feels even better to support others in our communities who are giving back themselves! Clay Richardson from our Franklin Financial Center is presenting a donation from Franklin's "Jean Day" money to Braelyn Young, President of the Pendleton County High School National Honor Society. Braelyn and the NHS are gathering donations and funds to send military care packages to our men and women in uniform overseas. It puts a huge smile on our face to see our students and youth getting involved in charitable work and we are more than happy to help support them!
5-Star Rated Pendleton Community Bank
A Bank You Can Trust
We did it again! It was truly a pleasure serving you in 2019 and we look forward to working together again in 2020!
January 2020: Coral Gables, Florida, BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, proudly affirms that Pendleton Community Bank, Franklin, West Virginia has once again earned its highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates this bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more, and Pendleton Community Bank has done so for 12 consecutive quarters.
“Relationship banking is a lot like any other relationship,” notes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “It’s much easier to maintain confidence and trust than to try to win it back. While a lot of Wall Street banks lost it, Pendleton Community Bank never did. In fact,” she continued, “a recent Federal Reserve survey found that while fewer than half of Big Bank customers were satisfied with their overall banking experience, the vast majority of community bank customers are satisfied."
West Virginia Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster
We made a very special donation recently to the WVVOAD (West Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) and their continuing efforts to aid in the recent flood relief from this past year. We used our Jean Fridays money as well as donations from local citizens to support the flood relief efforts and make a donation to those who still need it. Dayne Davis, Franklin Financial Center Manager, presented Bethany Bentley, WVVOAD representative, with a donation in the amount of $1,170 to go towards the recovery efforts.
Beckley, WV Downtown Revitalization
Beckley, WV is really putting a lot of work in on their downtown revitalization and one new addition is the new downtown visitors center along with a new bike sharing service! We attended the ribbon cutting and open house for the new center and congratulated all of those involved on a great job for their continued efforts! Vickie Warren (left) from our Beckley Financial Center stopped to grab a picture with Vicki Webb, Beckley Welcome Center Volunteer Director, and to thank her for all of her hard work!
Pendleton Community Bank, an independent community bank since 1925, currently has ten full-service financial centers located in the West Virginia communities of Franklin, Moorefield, Marlinton, Petersburg, Wardensville, Mount Hope, Oak Hill, and Beckley and two financial centers in the Virginia community of Harrisonburg.
