The Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center joined Crossroads Bank in celebrating the opening of its new office in South Whitley. A ribbon cutting ceremony recently took place. Located at 207 S. State St. in South Whitley, Crossroads Bank moved from its previous location on Columbia Street in early October. The larger facility more than doubled the bank’s size and includes additional office and conference room space. “In a time when many businesses may choose to build new, we appreciate Crossroads Bank’s decision to revitalize instead. Choosing to reinvest in the downtown of South Whitley speaks volumes about your commitment to this town, it’s people, it’s businesses and the community as a whole,” Jennifer Romano, executive director of the chamber, said during the celebration. Those attending the ceremony included, from left in front, Crossroads Bank Vice President Randy Holler; Romano; Crossroads board of directors member Cindy Riemersma; South Whitley Crossroads Bank branch manager Erin Arnett; South Whitley Crossroads Bank manager Joe Grant; Crossroads Senior Vice President of Retail Banking Jennifer Southers; Lee Aumsbaugh of Aumsbaugh Flooring; and Don Clemens of Rabb Water Systems. Row two, from left, is Community Development director Jeff Walker; Greg Fahl of Orizon Real Estate; Crossroads Bank tellers Tara Schuman, Beth Kolwicz and Amanda Esterline; Crossroads Bank commercial ag lender Todd Lybarger; Wabash Crossroads Assistant Vice President of Commercial Operations Kris Shoemaker; Crossroads Senior Vice President Lending Officer Michael Walters; and Crossroads board of directors John Phillipson and Rob Pearson.
