Presidents present pies for generous giving
To sweeten their campaigns, two local bank presidents created some friendly competition. As a part of the pacesetter campaign, Drive Chair Kathy Rhyner, Community Bank President, of Associated Bank and Al Nystrom, Community Bank President of M&I Bank set a challenge to see which bank had the highest percent of employee participation.
It soon became clear that employees from both banks rose to the challenge with 100 percent participation.
To honor the challenge, Al wore a logo shirt from Associate Bank and Kathy donned a M&I Shirt and served their favorite apple pies to Associated Bank and M&I Bank employees at their Marshfield locations.
Al delivered his pies in style, using a little red wagon (pictured at left).
The ultimate winner is the community…each bank’s employees can feel good about their friends, family and neighbors benefiting from their generosity.
