150th Celebration - 150 Days to Celebrate 150 Years

This year Grundy Bank has the privilege of celebrating 150 years of being your community friend and financial partner. Our success is contributed by decades of dedicated staff who have the same common goal of caring for not only our clients but for our community. In addition to our staff, you, our clients and friends, have made this unique milestone possible through your loyalty to Grundy Bank. We thank you for being our community friend and financial partner as without you, this would not be possible. We’re planning several different ways to express our gratitude to you for your business throughout the year as we celebrate 150 years. We simply say "Thank you!"

September 16th - Our 150th Birthday Celebration!

As part of our 150th Celebration, we wanted to find a way to give back to our community. To put in perspective just how long ago 1864 was, we hired Max & Donna Daniels, Abraham & Mary Lincoln impersonators to visit local area elementary schools. (Click here for the Morris Daily Herald article)

In addition, we also had our Grand Re-opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of our new lobby this day! Many retired employees and clients stopped in to join the celebration! We thank everyone who attended and joined us for this special occasion!
