“To me, this award confirms that we are providing a valuable service to the community, and that people appreciate the option to choose a truly local bank,” Schulte said. “That’s both gratifying and humbling as we approach our tenth anniversary this spring.”

The Seaside Chamber of Commerce recognized seven organizations and individuals at the annual banquet for their exemplary service to the community.
