A TRIBUTE TO PATRICIA REYNOLDS

February 13, 2015

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.
