Patrick R. Gideon, President

Greetings and Happy Holidays!

Thank you for your patience during our recent core software and Internet Banking conversion. At Silver Lake Bank, we are committed to working together to create solutions, and hearing from you is part of that process. Please feel free to share your input and suggestions about our upgraded services with staff or me. Stop by, call or send an email to

I want to extend my sincere thanks and best wishes to our retiring employees Ann Keller and Kathy Richards, both retiring at the end of December. Ann, Vice President of Training and Development, has had a 34 year career with us. Kathy Richards, Silver Lake Branch Manager, retires after 13 years. Please stop by the Silver Lake branch office and wish them well.

We are proud of our long history at Silver Lake Bank and work hard to embody the core values of community banking. This is accomplished through area loans, donations and employee volunteerism. Our staff is involved in everything from schools and churches to service clubs and economic development. One of the benefits of a locally owned and operated business is the ability to adapt our services and products in response to your needs. I encourage you to explore our many products and services. Over time, both personal and business needs change and we stand ready to help! We recognize you have a choice on where you bank and are privileged to have you as a customer.

I hope you will stop by for a visit, pick up a 2018 calendar and have some caramel corn (while supplies last!), available at SLB locations beginning a couple of weeks before Christmas. On behalf of the staff of Silver Lake Bank, all the best to you and your families during this holiday season. Thank you for banking at SLB.

Patrick R. Gideon
