You know who matters on trying days. Thanks to our many Montvale Branch customers who called about our staff’s safety following the Sept. 28 robbery at the branch. 

Branch Manager Valerie Woodrum says she received phone calls, text messages and emails from people concerned that someone had been hurt. We’re grateful our story had a good end result thanks to our staff members who used the skills they’d be taught. No amount of money is worth the risk of someone’s life, and our teller acted appropriately when handing the robber the cash from her drawer. 

While we always make safety a top priority, we’ll likely be a little on edge in the coming days. Again, thanks for your support as we work toward feeling our usual level of comfort in our workplace.
