Spring is here and Welcome to the NEW First National Bank website.


I can’t believe how fast this year is already going. The first quarter is behind us, spring is upon us and we continue to seek better and more innovative ways to serve you, our customer. We are truly grateful for the trust and confidence you continue to place in us to be your bank of preference. We appreciate the business.


One of our more exciting announcements at this time is as you can see we have launched our new Web Page. It is very user friendly, dynamic and informative and we hope you find it as fun and engaging as we do. We also want to encourage you to look into using your Bank’s mobile platform more and more and learning just how much you can do through it. It allows you to do most everything needed to handle the majority of your daily banking needs and it’s a great time saver.


We also hope you’ll visit our Facebook page, like us and keep up with the many social activities of our Bank and our Associates.


Our Associates are busy planning and preparing for the 9th Annual Southern New Mexico Festival of Quilts to be held at the Otero County Fairgrounds. This event benefits children in our local communities and provides much needed assistance. This event has grown in popularity and we have quilters literally from around the world that attend this fun event. World renowned quilter, Pam Holland from Australia will again be here, teaching her craft and sharing her experiences. We also have Sue Rasmussen, a nationally acclaimed quilter, teacher, lecturer and artist is also returning to lend her expertise and support to the event. We are especially thrilled to announce that internationally acclaimed master quilter; Ricky Tims will be featured this year and will be participating in the event. Ricky is also a renowned pianist and will be performing a concert while he is here. The event is June 20-23, 2018 and you don’t want to miss it.


Our Lunch and Learn series has gotten off to a great start again this year and we continue to have excellent programs and good attendance. I would encourage you to join your community neighbors and enjoy one or more of these informative, interactive and fun events.


As those who hold a special place in my heart, please continue to remember the men and women who wear the uniforms of freedom as well as those who are our first responders as they selflessly serve us each and every day to not only ensure our freedoms, but protect us here in our communities. When you see them, take a moment to thank them for their commitment to us as they do that very demanding job.  We cannot thank those men and women enough for our freedoms and our safety both at home and around the world.


We at First National Bank thank you for the opportunity to serve you. Our promise to you is to work diligently to earn your trust and your business. We are continually seeking ways to provide you with the highest quality banking services that will make a difference in your lives and your businesses. I hope you return to our website regularly for updated information about your Bank, community activities and information on things going on that may affect your financial life. We hope you’ll visit one of our six community banking offices and come away knowing you just visited a bank that truly cares about you.  On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and the Associates here at the Bank, THANK YOU for your patronage and continued support of our proud institution.
