FARGO, N.D., Aug. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — With 100 years in the books, Gate City Bank has published a memoir about its amazing history, which has inspired a better way of life for customers, communities and team members.
The week of August 14 marks Gate City Bank’s 100-year celebration event, but the bank has celebrated this milestone in many other ways, as well. From record-breaking donations to a new location to a limited-edition cookie flavor and more, the bank has made a splash, culminating in its new written work, For a Better Way of Life®.
Gate City Bank told its story with Write Stuff Enterprises, the world’s leading publisher of books on the evolution of industry and technology. With Write Stuff founder Jeffrey Rodengen authoring the publication himself, both organizations worked tirelessly to capture the bank’s inspiring history.
Gate City Bank was determined to do things right. From vetting countless interviewees to combing through regional archives, teams worked meticulously to assemble diverse sources. Board members spoke of the unwavering determination of the bank’s leaders. Historic journal entries revealed the company’s forward thinking. Polaroid photographs helped researchers journey through days past, granting them a front-row seat to the bank’s evolution – and triumph.
“These past 100 years are so important because they tell an inspirational story, one that not only speaks of our perseverance through challenging times, but sets the stage for our continued commitment to a strong future,” said Kevin Hanson, President & CEO.
