Good afternoon,
I wanted to reach out to our business community and let you know we are here to help any way we can.
We put together a compilation of resources that we felt applied to our business community. Please keep in mind, they remain fluid and are changing daily, but we will continue to send them out as we get more information.  
We are here to help, so if you have questions, please let us know. If we don’t know the immediate answer, we will either direct you to someone who does or find the information for you. We will continue to be a resource as things change. Your banker may be a great resource for you to consider reaching out to as well.
We are working on a survey to best understand how we can help and how our businesses are being impacted. Please watch for it and encourage others to fill it out as well.
Again, please reach out if you have questions or concerns. Call me at 701.523.5880 or email me at
