There is always something new and exciting going on around the bank and we want to make sure you’re aware of what your bank is involved in and doing in the communities we serve. This “Branching Out” extension from our website will be here for you to visit and get up to date information about bank projects, activities, sponsorships, and community events in the cities we call home.


On June 14, United Way of San Joaquin held a Mini-Grant Awards Presentation at the Manteca Branch. This year, United Way distributed $10,000 to six local non-profits in the Manteca, Lathrop, Escalon, and Ripon areas. The funds raised came from the Flapjack Breakfast and the Wine, Chocolate & Art events that were held in 2016.

Special thanks to United Way Community Council Co-Chair and Board Member, Debbie Baglietto and staff for their continued support!

INTERSECTION OF ART – Modesto


Every year the Modesto Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Modesto Program, also known as LeMo, identifies, educates, and motivates potential community leaders. At the conclusion of their year in the LeMo program, they encourage participants to volunteer their time to identify and complete a service project that will have a positive impact in the Community.

The LeMo Class of 2017, made up of 24 community leaders from various industries, chose to raise awareness of the arts in the community while revitalizing Downtown Modesto. Their project entailed beautifying two Downtown Modesto intersections just in front of the Gallo Center for the Arts.
