First National Bank Northfield held a groundbreaking on Thursday morning for their new south location across from Target. Featured shovelers were Ray Cox, Northfield Construction (general contractor for the project; see Ray’s blog post about the event), Councilor Kris Vohs, VP Becky Behrens, Board member Brett Reese, and president Dave Shumway. Dave, Brett and Kris (photos L to R) also spoke. Robbie and I have banked at First National since we moved here in 1974. (No, they’re not a client.)
Be careful how you refer to the bank’s locations or bank VP Rick Estenson will have Dave and Randy from Neuger Communications on your case. This is the bank’s 3rd location, to be referred to as ‘First National South’ and the others as ‘First National Downtown’ and ‘First National Motor Bank.’ Got it?
