The First National Bank of Sandoval will become Midwest National Bank on October 2.
The history of the bank is the history of the Midwest. Sandoval was populated and built upon the existence of rich soil for crops, coal mines, and oil fields. In fact, an oil boom in the early 1900s allowed the bank to open in 1910. The First National Bank was not the first bank in the area, but it continues serving the community more than 113 years later.
The bank and the community have been built and grown on the shoulders of great people who had faith, took chances on people, and believed if they worked together, they could make the community better.
The bank now has customers all over the United States, yet its roots are from right here. So, after all these years of growth and expanding its reach to surrounding communities and beyond, the bank recognized that it needed a more accurate name to represent more of who the bank is and who it is becoming.
To honor the bank’s most important asset, a Customer Appreciation Day will be held on Friday, October 6, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Big Daddy’s BBQ food truck will provide burgers, hot dogs, and drinks. Dippin’ Dots will be providing ice cream for dessert. There will be music and giveaways during the celebration.
First National Bank of Sandoval has also partnered with Stericycle to host Shred Day on Saturday Oct 7, from 9 a.m. to noon. People can bring any old documents with personal or sensitive information to be shredded and disposed of safely and securely at no cost to them.
