Testimonials

“The Southern trip was wonderful, thanks to Marsha and Jane. I know a lot of planning goes into each trip and it’s appreciated. Thank you. We are so lucky to have a caring bank.”

“Thank you so much for a very fun-filled trip to Indiana — I had a great time!”

“We feel that we are very fortunate to have Flanagan State Bank in our small community. Your family has been with us through our whole married life. Whether it was buying our first home, our first new car, or our first farm grounds you were always there to support us. You always said, ‘Find what you want and let us know how much money you need.’ When people we knew were worried about their money, we always felt safe with our choice in banks.”

“What can we say about those Road Runner trips? We feel as though we have been welcomed into the family and we haven’t stopped laughing since. Marsha has always been there for us; you couldn’t have picked a better person to plan the trips, she is wonderful!”

“A big THANK YOU to you for letting all your employees see that the customers still come first and that their opinions still matter to you. Flanagan State Bank will always be #1 in our book. Thanks to you for still doing some things the old-fashioned way.”

“I am looking forward to the fall trip to Branson. Your trips are always well-planned and so educational. We see so much in such a short time. All of you are to be commended for all the hard work that goes into the planning!”

“The bank trips are our only trips of the year and we love each one of them.”

“We are coming off a ‘high’ after that wonderful trip to New England. Everything was so enjoyable and made for a wonderful vacation experience.”

“Thank you again for the wonderful time I had on our trip to Branson. You girls worked so hard, I can’t wait to go back. Thanks too for taking such good care of me, I love you for that.”

“We enjoyed the trip to Branson so much – had to send you a note to let you know. Marsha and Jane did an excellent job in leading us and making sure we were having fun! The days were well planned and they made good choices on the shows. The bus drivers need compliments too. No complaints!”

“Thanks for the trip, we are ready for the next one!”
