Current and Upcoming Events

2014 Family Fun Days
Thank you to everyone who came out and made our 2014 annual Family Fun Days a success! During the months of June, July, August, and September, Old Plank Trail Community Bank hosted Family Fun Days at 10 of our locations. All of the events included free face painting, food, treats, games, and prizes. Some lucky events even had free hot dogs, visits from local fire and police departments, on-site radio broadcasts, and reptile shows! Although every event was different, our mission remained the same. That mission was to treat each community we serve with an afternoon of free and family-friendly fun as our way of saying, "Thanks!" For dates and more information, please click here

Big Amazing Race 2014

On Friday, July 25th, 2014, the bank participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Will and Grundy Counties’ Big Amazing Race, a fundraising event patterned after the hit CBS Show, 'The Amazing Race.' The bank volunteered at the registration table, donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters, and even had a team of four to complete the mental and physical challenges at locations throughout downtown Joliet. The event was great fun and for a great cause, we are happy to continue our support for Big Brothers Big Sisters.
