Fredonia Valley Bank will celebrate 125 years of business and community engagement Oct. 26 with a community fall festival.
"We're thankful," said Lisa Guess, a bank teller and the event organizer.
"We feel blessed that we've been able to be here and keep up with the times to grow with the community and the surrounding communities."
The celebration is scheduled for 3-8 p.m. at Fredonia ball park. The Fredonia Activities Committee and Fredonia First Baptist Church worked with the bank to prepare the event.
The bank emphasizes community involvement for its employees, Guess said.
"We do coat drives where we collect coats for the needy," she said. "We try to help anywhere the community needs us to help out."
"That's our main thing. We do care about our customers, our community and we try to stay active with that."
