Patrick R. Gideon, President

I am thrilled to announce that Silver Lake Bank is one of the top 3 finalists for ‘Best Bank’ in the annual Best of Topeka contest. Thank you for the vote of confidence. We are looking forward to a busy and productive fourth quarter here at Silver Lake Bank. Our focus continues to be on improving the customer experience and providing you with up to date technology, products and services. To meet this goal, the Bank will undergo a core software and Internet Banking conversion on September 21st to help make managing your money easier than ever. You will enjoy increased benefits of viewing checks online and real-time balances. 

Our staff has been busy participating in community programs and events; our Young Guns staff assisted at Harvesters by sorting and filling boxes of food, our Lawrence branch hosted a photographer’s work during the Lawrence community’s monthly Final Fridays event and we enjoyed sponsoring the Shawnee County 4-H Family Fun night and the Flint Hills Builders Association Golf Tournament in Wamego. We recently delivered gifts for teachers and support staff at schools we partner with in appreciation of the work they do with youth. I am proud of our staff’s commitment to service in the community. 

I have recently had the pleasure of working with Seaman District Superintendent Dr. Steve Noble on a partnership for business sponsorship of the Seaman High School Bank, in existence for 90 years. We have been given the opportunity to assist with renovation and provide updated technology and tools to continue their mission of simulating a banking environment for students. SLB also partners with Silver Lake and the Auburn-Washburn School district in the same capacity. 

We value the trust you have placed in us. We will be there for you when you have a financial need: your dream home, kids going to college, an operating line of credit for your business, retirement and day to day tools for quick access to your money. We are proud to be your financial partner. Thank you for choosing Silver Lake Bank.
