BizBeat: Mid America Bank celebrates 100 years

April is Community Bank Month, and one such bank is celebrating 100 years of serving the Mid-Missouri community.

Mid America Bank was originally chartered in 1914 as the Peoples Bank of St. Thomas. Over the past century, the bank has grown to serve the communities of Wardsville, Holts Summit, Linn, Belle and Meta.

The vital role that community banks serve in the economic, civic and cultural life of their communities throughout the United States is recognized each April. Mid America Bank will take advantage of Community Bank Month to thank its customers for their loyalty and to salute the communities it serves.

In celebration of the 100th Anniversary, Mid America Bank in Wardsville will host an open house on April 26. In keeping with its heritage, a live bald eagle demonstration will be at the heart of the celebration. The public is invited to attend and enjoy food and refreshments from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For 100 years, Mid America has been a pillar of strength to the communities it serves. It has successfully navigated trying economic times in the nation including the Great Depression.

“Everyone at Mid America Bank works tirelessly to serve the needs of our customers. We treat them like we would want to be treated — like family,” said Mid America Bank president Brian Berhorst. “And we reinvest in our communities. We are excited to support the activities of our youth because they are the future. We happily provide financial support and volunteer hours to countless civic and charitable events that make our communities better places to work and live.”

Locally owned, many of the bank’s employees are lifelong residents who grew up in surrounding communities. They understand what customers need and are committed to providing the most advanced financial products and services available.

Mid America is proud that its customers choose to bank with its many branches, and it looks forward to an exciting future as it continues building lasting relationships. It’s not just a community bank; “we’re a bank that’s good for you and your community too.”
