New two-story building in New London

First State Bank kicked off the opening of its corporate headquarters Monday, Oct. 2, with a ribbon cutting.

The bank’s new two-story building at 220 W. Waupaca Street, New London, brings lobby, drive-up and local operations together into one facility; the bank previously had a separate drive-up for more than 35 years.

“We are excited for this new chapter of First State Bank’s commitment to the New London community,” said Matt Lemke, president and CEO. “Thank you to the City of New London, Keller and the many contractors who worked on our beautiful office, and our amazing staff for their commitment and dedication during this process. We would also like to thank our First State Bank customers for their support and patience during this transition.”

First State Bank’s New London Grand Opening Celebration is scheduled for Oct. 10-14.

The celebration starts on Tuesday with cake, punch and free giveaways.

On Wednesday, bring in a canned soup donation for the Washington Center Community Cupboard and receive a free First State Bank soup mug.

Free pairs of movie tickets for the Grand Cinema Theater will be given away on Thursday, while supplies last.

On Friday, the bank celebrates homecoming weekend with tailgating snacks and a chance to win a New London Bulldogs gift basket.

Festivities conclude with a “Fall Family Fun Day” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, at the New London office. Customers and community members are invited to stop by for free family fun including a giant inflatable corn maze, bounce house, New London FFA’s petting zoo, free concessions, games and live music by Jamus Unplugged.

All who stop in during the Grand Opening Celebration week can enter their name into a drawing for hourly prizes. Individuals who register will also have a chance to win $1,000 in a grand prize drawing at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 16. Complete sweepstake rules and details are available at the New London office.
