is also our first anniversary that we
can share with our five new banking

new offices and 6,700 new bank

Waumandee State Bank Celebrates Centennial
Waumandee State Bank cele-
brated its 100th anniversary with an
open house at its seven locations—

City, Durand, Mondovi, Black River
Falls, and Whitehall. The events fea-
tured giveaways, snacks, beverages,

Bank employees created a 100th
anniversary float that appeared in
eight parades last summer. “We
try to do the parades that are in all
of the towns that currently have a
branch [or customers],” explained
Donna Rotering, retail operations
and marketing director.
“It gets to be a full summer and
the weeks fly by,” she said. “Our
employees are willing to walk along
and hand out candy and other items
to the crowds …We do the parades
every year, but the cake was special
for our 100th anniversary.”
