Our Community success is the collective efforts of many great people. We have some of the most hard-working and good-hearted people we know. Our “People Matter” section was created to share with you these neighbors’ stories. You will read about volunteering, good business practicing, coaching, educating our youth, and many other areas of community dedication by the people we spotlight. We would like to hear from all of you anyone you believe makes a difference as well.
