At The Commercial Bank we are dedicated to being a true community bank, and have a tradition of giving back to the communities that we serve.  Our participation in a wide variety of programs, initiatives and special projects demonstrates our commitment to positively impacting our community.

We realize a strong community does not happen by chance. That’s why, as a local leader in community involvement, we are committed to providing financial assistance to area organizations which benefit our community.

In addition to financial support, bank employees give of their time and talents through membership in numerous organizations supporting our community.
