FNB Weatherford expanding

New College Park location has ribbon cutting


Bearden said the expansion isn’t finished yet as the bank plans future branches around the county.Werner being well known around the city isn’t surprising.

Markum said bank employees take their community activities very seriously and are involved in many things, including “ringing the bell” for the Salvation Army, which they took part in all day Thursday at the Weatherford Walmart.

“We are very involved in our community because our community is involved with us and it’s our chance to give back,” Markum said.

The holidays have been a busy time at the bank after a number of activities last week. After the ribbon cutting Thursday, the bank opened its doors early to the public Friday with a Breakfast Before Business, sponsored by the Weatherford Area Chamber of Commerce. For 90 minutes, business leaders had the chance to network and meet before getting down to business for the day. Music was provided by Kyle Williams.

Local business Whistle Hill Cafe catered the event. The breakfast to start the day was just part of a full day of activities. An open house was hosted throughout the day Friday with the public also able to enjoy the bank as a decorated Snow Village.

Later in the day, Santa made a special visit to the village to meet with children, who gave him their personal list for the holiday. Adding to the festive holiday atmosphere was the musical stylings of harpist Sydney Howell of Harps of Gold.

“It was just crazy in here,” Markum said.
