"I'm excited for the opportunity to work with such a dedicated and talented staff," commented Scott. "I'm looking forward to meeting our customers and becoming familiar with the communities our Bank has served so well for the last 110 years. We're going to work hard, and we're going to have some fun," said Scott.

The addition of Scott is part of a planned succession and Bank continuity strategy as current CEO Steven C. Bell steps down as President prior to a formal retirement announcement in February, 2014. Bell will continue to serve as CEO of Community State Bank and participate as a Board Member.

Superheroes Unite for Family Fun Run/Walk
Community State Bank's Annual Family Fun Run/Walk was a "SUPER" success!

Super Saturday

 

It's official! On Saturday, September 7, 2013 the streets of Union Grove were the safest they have ever been! That's because superheroes and citizens took to the streets to participate in the 2nd Annual Super Saturday 5K Superhero Family Fun Run/Walk.

Although our biggest villain was the rain just before the race, that didn't stop our superheroes and citizens from having a great time! Our 5K volunteers were able to weather the storm (literally) to register, check-in and cheer on over 132 runners, walkers and superheroes. We TRIPLED last year's attendance! That's amazing for our second year!

Please check out two promotional videos we put together highlighting all of the fun!

The 5K Fun Run was a part of the larger all-day Super Saturday. Super Saturday is an opportunity for businesses, local service organizations and community members to connect with a day filled with fun and activities centered in Union Grove, WI. And this day was truly SUPER! From a local talent show to our 5K run, from tons of entertainment to a late night street dance, the day had it all. And we can't forget to mention all of the great food and local business specials! People came from all over Racine and Kenosha County to take part in this annual event.

Because of the huge success of this year's 5K event, we were able to give back the proceeds to Super Saturday for the enjoyment and benefit of everyone in the community. We strongly believe in this community event and are happy to give back to make it even better in the coming years!

We would like to thank everyone who came out to be a part of this awesome event. It's what this community is about and we couldn't have done it without you! We hope you had a super time!

If you weren't able to make it to Super Saturday this year, mark your calendars for Saturday, September 6th, 2014 for next year's event.

Watch for photo and video highlights coming soon on the Super Saturday website! www.ugsupersaturday.com.

Holiday Travel Tips
Making your holiday travel plans early can stretch your budget further than you think.
Holiday Travel

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, the holiday travel season is right around the corner. By planning your holiday travel now you can stretch your budget further than you think. Here are some tips to keep in mind as you're planning your winter travel.

Fly when no one else wants to.
Airline ticket prices rise and fall with demand, so you'll get the best deals when few other people are traveling. During the holiday season, this means the best prices are on Tuesday and Wednesday, or on Saturday afternoon. For example, if you're taking a week-long trip and leave on a Saturday and return on a Monday, you can save up to 16 percent on your airfare. Early morning and late night flights are also typically less expensive and smaller airport crowds at those times can mean you'll get through security lines faster.

Know your travel insurance options.
When you book a vacation, you may be asked if you'd like to purchase travel insurance. Before spending the extra money, familiarize yourself with what travel insurance options are available to you. Travel insurance can cover trip cancellation, accidental death and dismemberment, loss of luggage or personal possessions, and/or protection against the bankruptcy or default of your cruise line or tour operator.

However, many homeowners' and renters' policies provide coverage for theft and other losses away from home, and your medical and auto insurance may cover you while you're traveling. Check with your insurance agent to see if your current policy will provide you with similar coverage to the travel insurance you're considering. Keep in mind that airlines must reimburse you if they lose your bags.

Create your travel budget now.
Even though you may not purchase your airline tickets for several weeks, depending on price fluctuations, create your travel budget and start saving now. If you plan your entire vacation in advance, you will have an accurate picture of the cost of accommodations, travel and planned activities. Build up your "holiday fund" savings now to avoid the stress of needing to pay for the travel afterward, when you'll also be paying for gifts and other holiday expenses.
