FIRST GRADERS VISIT OUR ELIZABETHTOWN BRANCH

We love it when teachers arrange to take their students on a class trip to one of our branches to teach them about what happens at a bank!  We were delighted to host a group of first graders from the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School, who took a field trip to our Elizabethtown branch last week.  After the visit, we were surprised to receive drawings from each of the kids who visited, showing us their favorite part of the Bank.  This artwork made our day!  Here are two of our favorites!

A TRIBUTE TO PATRICIA REYNOLDS

Next time you are in one of our branches, take a look at the artwork on our walls.  You will probably be looking at a painting by Patricia Reynolds, who recently passed away.  Reynolds was a prolific artist from Willsboro, and her paintings can be found in most of our branches today, often depicting scenes from the Champlain Valley and the Adirondack Mountains.  She was a friend to many people at Champlain National Bank, so we want to take a moment to remember her, and share with you a few of her paintings.  These particular paintings below can be found in our Willsboro branch.
