'I'm a Community Bank® company shareholder because I think that the Community Bank® model is a win, win, win for everyone in the village and surrounds.'

‘Our community is really important to me so it made perfect sense to be a shareholder in our Community Bank® company because it not only provides great shareholder returns but also provides direct returns to our district.’

‘Having spent my whole life in the Beaufort district and seeing the success that the Beaufort Community Bank® Branch has returned to the community it gives our family great pride in knowing that we, in some small part, are contributing to this. When the branch first opened some 14 years ago my parents, bought Community Bank® company shares for themselves and for their children. Now that we’ve started our own family we’re continuing to do the same having purchased just a small amount for our first daughter two years ago. We’re currently in the process of buying shares for our youngest daughter. More than just a good investment, buying shares in our Community Bank® branch will show our kids what can be achieved when community spirit is alive. They will carry this connection with our town wherever their lives take them knowing that they are contributing to the community success while, at the same time, receiving a return on their investment.’
