As our Plains Land Bank team grows, we are welcoming more young people and it has really livened up the office. The passion they have for their jobs inspires all of us to work even harder. In a way, it is like having grandkids – the energy they bring is contagious!
I have enjoyed watching our employees get married, start their lives, and buy their first homes. It reminds me of when Debbie and I got married 40 years ago. It sounds cliché, but I cannot believe how the years have flown by. It seems like just yesterday that I stood in front of Grandma Stewart asking for her permission to get married. Fortunately, permission was granted! Since then, Debbie and I have had two kids and four grandkids, and the best part of life is when they come home for the holidays. It is so rare that we get our family together all under the same roof and the memories we make are truly priceless.
At Plains Land Bank, we know that those moments are important to you, too, and there is nothing better than helping young couples purchase their first homes and farms. We are excited to help them finance their futures. Many young people want their children to experience country life and traditional lenders don’t always understand that, but here at Plains Land Bank we do. In fact, Plains Land Bank is one of the few lenders in our area to finance barndominiums and rural homes. We are proud to be able to help families make memories and we thank you for letting us be a part of your lives.
From my family to yours, we wish you a joyous holiday season!
