Jim Jurgens, now Chairman Emeritus, said he is thankful for finding a community bank partner to sustain the commitment and service to Arthur and the surrounding area. “We appreciate the cooperation of our customers through this transition. To show our appreciation, the staff welcomes everyone to come in and register to win dozens of prizes.” More information about “The State Bank of Arthur Sports Giveaway” will be mailed to area residents next week.
