As we slowly begin to reopen our great state, after weeks of “sheltering in,” we are learning how strong, resilient and caring we are in Montana. It has truly been inspiring to watch all of us come together, united in our efforts to collectively reduce the spread of the virus. It has required isolation, sacrifice, commitment and dedication, but we are persevering together and for that, we are truly grateful.
To our customers, we thank you for your patience, understanding and willingness to embrace new ways to bank, by appointment and using our walk-up and drive-up facilities, as well as our online and mobile banking services. It has been a very difficult and challenging time for many of you, so don’t forget that we are here to help.
To our employees, we thank you for coming together to assist where help is needed. Whether it was helping out with a very busy drive-up, answering phones, working 24/7 on Paycheck Protection Program loans and opening new accounts, you did it with a smile and positive attitude. We appreciate all you do each and every day for one other and for our customers.
To our front-line first responders and health care workers, we thank you for making a difference in this world and helping those in need. We appreciate the long hours, risks taken and the true grit you exude everyday in your life as you work to save your patients from this cruel virus.
From our Stockman family to yours, we are proud to live and work alongside you each and every day. As our CEO Bill Coffee stated, “During our nearly 70-year history, through ups and downs – market swings, wars, and natural disasters – we have weathered many storms together. We will weather this storm too.”
They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words. In this case, it’s a video as words cannot fully express how thankful we are to all of you for your dedication and selfless service over the past few months. Thank you for doing your part! We are truly Montanans serving Montanans.
Our gift to you; a special song and video, titled “Montana”, written and performed by one of our very own, Sam Hould, Facilities and Security/Safety Officer, and his band, Top Shelf Racket. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
