First National Bank & Trust Partners with Area Businesses for

Free Outdoor Community Movie Night

Outdoor Movie Night Photo

. The Calvary Lutheran Church in Quinnesec & Bethany Lutheran Church in Norway presented a Free Outdoor Community Movie Night sponsored by The First National Bank & Trust Co. of Iron Mountain, The Iron Mountain Downtown Development Authority, Thomas Theatre Group and Thunder Island Music. The event was Tuesday, August 22nd at the Iron Mountain DDA stage across from the Dickinson County Library.

“It is so exciting that the community is pulling together to host this family friendly event,” said Jean O’Dette of the First National Bank. “We wanted to host a summer event to celebrate our 130th Anniversary of being Rooted in the Community and what better way than collaborating with other local businesses and organizations to provide a community outdoor family movie. Pastor Dave Johnson of the Calvary Lutheran Church has been offering outdoor family movie night every Friday evening in Quinnesec. Teaming up with them was a perfect fit to make this fun event available to larger groups."

In addition to the Calvary Lutheran Church, the First National Bank also brought in other key partners to make this event possible.

“When we reached out to Paula Craven and Gina Wollner from the DDA, they were pleased to collaborate by promoting the event and offering the DDA stage area. We want to make downtown Iron Mountain a destination and hosting events like this makes our community stronger,” said O’Dette.

Thomas Theatre Group provided the 2015 Disney/Pixar movie Inside Out .

In conjunction with this community event, Megan Buck, Director of the Dickinson County Library scheduled a Make-N-Take craft session at the library. The library provided space and all the materials (crayons,glue, paper plates) so that kids and adults could make a box car for the movie night. The First National Bank provided free water and popcorn for those in attendance.

For some 50 years, the Upper Peninsula Regional Blood Center - a service of UP Health System - Marquette - has played a critical part in saving lives by providing blood when needed in the local community. The center provides blood to 13 hospitals in the U.P. and all donations received through the center stay in the community.

In celebration of First National Bank & Trust's 130th anniversary, bank employees wanted to do something special for the nurses who volunteer at the UP Regional Blood drives in Kingsford. Their existing blood pressure cuffs were old and not always accurate. This prompted many of the ladies to bring in their personal cuffs from home. About a dozen bank employees who regularly donate every eight weeks at the mobile UP regional Blood collection site at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Kingsford noticed their problem. They also had the solution: Donate a new BP cuff to them as part of their community focused year-long anniversary celebration. The first thing they did was to reach out to their friends at the TDS Pharmacy to find the most reliable and precise monitor on the market. Steve Roell hooked them up with two Omrom 10 Series Blood pressure monitors just in time for the next mobile drive on February 20th.

130th Anniversary Cookbook
Rooted in Your Community

Cookbook Cover

In celebration of their 130 th Anniversary, the employees of First National Bank & Trust once again gathered together a collection of their favorite recipes. The slogan for this milestone is “Rooted in Your Community Since 1887” and there is no better way to kick off the yearlong celebration than by releasing another cookbook.

According to Jean, the original idea came to them more than six years ago from employees bringing food to work and then sharing their favorite recipes. One day, Tanya said “what a great idea it would be to put them all together in a book to celebrate our 125 th Anniversary. We could publish the recipes and sell the books, donating the money to local food pantries.” We ran with the idea, published 550 books and sold out of them within six months.

Approximately 150 sought after recipes from past and present employees are divided into eight categories: Breakfast Favorites, Appetizers, Soups & Salads, Side Dishes, Main Dishes, Desserts, Beverages, and a catch-all category called “Other” in which you will find recipes for dog treats, repellents, laundry soap and more. They also shared some of their favorite photos, scattered throughout the pages. According to Jean “It was a lot of fun putting this book together. While typing and proofing the recipes, I couldn’t decide what I wanted to try to make next.”

The Anniversary Cookbooks are available at any of First National Bank & Trust Co.’s seven locations (Downtown, Kingsford, North, South, Econo Foods, Iron River, and Menominee) for $10 each. The proceeds will be shared with food pantries the employees support within each community. The cookbooks make great gifts for those who love to cook, recent graduates, students leaving for college, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, or just about any occasion. Books will be available for sale while supplies last.

The event continues to grow; we are pleased this has become an annual event and are looking forward to next year” stated a bank representative.


Shred Fest

9:00am-12:00pm

The First National Bank & Trust Co. of Iron Mountain is sponsoring their 5 th Annual Shred Fest on Saturday, September 17th from 9 am to 12 pm (noon), in the parking lot of the former Timbers Motor Lodge located on US 2 across from the Main branch of First National Bank & Trust in Iron Mountain.  

The First National Bank & Trust has once again retained Country Mile Document Destruction, Inc. of Stephenson, MI to have their state-of-the art, mobile shredding truck and staff at the shred site. On-site and in your presence, you will over see your confidential documents shredded immediately. After all data has been destroyed, Country Mile recycles the paper residue.

This service is FREE for everyone in our community:residents, home office workers, community organizations and small businesses. To make the process efficient, please bring only paper documents with personal information to the shred site, in paper bags or cardboard boxes. CD’s/DVD’s, credit cards, staples and small clips can also be put through the shredder, but please make sure that there is no large binder clips, metal ring binders, plastic covers, books(phone books, catalogs, etc.) or other contaminates in your papers.   If you are unsure if it can be destroyed at this event, just separate it from your paper documents so a “Shred Fest Crew” member or Country Mile staff member can evaluate it. First National Bank & Trust reserves the right to refuse materials that will jam or damage the shredder.

Due to heavy volume, guests may bring a maximum of five boxes of personal documents per vehicle to shred, and you will receive a number when you arrive for order of shredding.

Donations will be accepted during this event. All proceeds will be given to the Veterans Assistance Fund. According to the Office of Veteran Affairs for Dickinson County, this fund fills the gap for local Veterans that served in peacetime and do not qualify for the Michigan Veterans Trust Fund. This program is funded solely by local donations and Super One/Econo Foods receipts. Veterans who need help with past due utilities, rent/mortgage, auto payments or repairs and other unforeseen household repairs are provided interest free loans with monthly payments they can afford. All principal repaid is used to help additional Veterans.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to protect yourself from identity theft by safely destroying your personal documents in the mobile shredding truck.

If you want additional information on the event, you can contact Jody Beauchamp at (906)776-2917.
