COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS
JUNE 2020
Shop, Eat, Drink, Local.
ENJOY Local!

Supporting your local retailers helps communities to grow and thrive.  By dining and shopping at locally-owned businesses rather than large chains and impersonal big-box retailers, consumers can have a truly positive impact on a community’s economy, people and environment. These are local farmers, craftsmen, restaurateurs, antiques dealers, and other product providers, with items made locally and sold on a small scale.

Now, it’s easy to talk the talk and say we support local businesses. But are we really putting our money where our mouth is? Local business means a stronger tax base, better infrastructure and better schools.

Bank of St. Francisville Shows Dedication to Local Businesses
As the pandemic of 2020 began to affect businesses all over our nation, Bank of St. Francisville quickly adapted its business plan to continue to offer services to all its customers.

"We committed to putting in extra hours as soon as the application period opened and hundreds of independent, locally run businesses in our area looked to local banks for a lifeline. There was a sense of responsibility that came with distributing the dollars to small businesses across our community,” said Cook.

Be Counted! Census Count Aids in Parish Funding
The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data. The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.
