Happy 35th Carol!

1983 was a great year. The average cost of a new home was $89,330, a gallon of gas cost $1.16, a ticket to the movies was just $2.75, the game of Jenga was first debuted, Flashdance was all the rage, AND Carol Betthauser started her career with F&M Bank.

Very few people can say that they have worked at the same organization for more than 35 years. What a great accomplishment. We are very thankful to have dedicated employees like Carol Betthauser working for us.

Happy 35th Anniversary to Carol! We thank you for your years of service to F&M Bank.

Dear F & M Bank Business Owner,

As a successful business owner, you know that just wanting to own a business is a far cry from being able to run one effectively. Expanding your business to the next revenue milestone is not much different—or much easier—than starting it. It can be a struggle. Here are a few benchmarks to keep in mind before you invest in the space, machinery or new employees to accomplish that new goal. (and when you are ready – give me a call to explore ways to fund it!)

Sincerely,

Bob Hoepfner
