April is community banking month, a time when we traditionally celebrate what we believe makes our bank unique - our community focused approach and personalized experience. During more normal times, you would see our team out at volunteer events, serving on boards, and joining in at community events. This is what makes working with a local bank so unique – your banking partners are right here in the community alongside you as you go about your day. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our ability to do what we love has changed. We are all learning new ways for us to stay connected. But we remain focused on what matters most to us – the health and welfare of the communities that we are proud to be a part of.
We know the COVID-19 pandemic has affected each of us in various ways. A lot of people are struggling in our communities and we, as a team, are doing what we can to help get our customers through these trying financial times. But many hands make light work and we are in this together. Please consider the following suggestions to help our community through this time.

Last year, we celebrated our 150th Anniversary of Tompkins Bank of Castile. Having been around for that long, we recognize that a big part of our success as a company is because of our employees. They are our face in the community and provide the excellent customer service that keeps our clients coming back. Without them, our bank and our communities would not be the same. We would like to thank them for their years of service and for being the friendly face at Tompkins Bank of Castile.
This past week we celebrated the career of a Tompkins Bank of Castile legend - the one and only Bob Bennett! Bob, our Vice President and Sales Manager, has retired after 26 years with the company.

That's right, you read that correctly. We are now open in Erie County, and we couldn't be more excited about it! The new financial center, which also houses our affiliate partners, Tompkins Insurance Agencies and Tompkins Financial Advisors, is open and ready for business.
