To

our STOCKHOLDERS

our CUSTOMERS

the MEMBERS OF OUR STAFF, and

the DELAWARE COMMUNITY:

After over thirteen years of business in Delaware,

we are proud to have served the financial needs

of our many customers in the city and county. We

are more than pleased with the response and sup-

port which the community has given us in this re-

latively short period of time. This confidence has

enabled us to grow with the economy in our area

and provide new and increased service to advance

the development of a Greater Delaware. It is in

this spirit that we open our new downtown office

and dedicate our future to provide sound, progres-

sive and convenient Banking Service to the people

of Delaware County.

Temporary Quarters

[cartoon reading: "TEMPORARY ENTRANCE BANK SEPT. 1963"]

During the remodeling project, it was necessary

that we vacate the main banking area. We were

fortunate to have space in the building to estab-

lish our temporary office, thus preventing a move

to quarters in another building. The patience,

understanding and cooperation of our customers

during this period have been sincerely appreciated.

The first step in the remodeling was the construc-

tion of a new and more adequate vault. This work

was started on July 15, 1963. The banking office

was moved to the basement area in September

1963, where business was conducted in what was

known as "the bargain basement." The entire re-

modeling operation lasted exactly eight months to

"ribbon cutting day."

50

YEARS

AGO

[photo]

The Building During Construction

This picture was taken approximately fifty years

ago when the building was being constructed.

Carbide street lights, steam engines and handle

bar mustaches were normal sights to be seen on

Sandusky Street. Construction techniques were

greatly different from our modern day methods.

Quality of workmanship and strength of materials

in the original construction presented several

problems in our remodeling program which de-

layed completion.

[photo] [arrow] Then

On October 7, 1950, Delaware's Home Owned,

Home Controlled Bank opened for business. Six-

teen men organized a group of people to establish

a second bank in Delaware, and were elected as

the first board of directors when the bankw as char-

tered. The first banking office was established

in the present County Bank Building which was

then the Peoples Building, and occupied less than

half of the first floor area. Judge Fred J. McAlli-

ster was the first president of the bank.

And now [arrow]

Today we are proud to open our newly remodeled

Downtown Office, designed to provide for our

customers' comfort, convenience, and service.

The enlarged lobby and banking area occupy the

entire first floor of the building plus additional

space on the mezzanine and in the basement.

Modern fixtures and decoration have been com-

bined to contribute to the attractiveness of the

downtown business area.

The desire to indicate the interest of the bank in

activities of the community, prompted the placing

of four paintings in the lobby area, representing

religion, education, agriculture and the county

fair which attracts attention each year to the grand

circuit racing event, The Little Brown Jug.

Mr. Richard A. Wengenroth, Assistant Professor

of Fine Arts at Ohio Wesleyan University, has re-

alistically depicted these subjects in his paintings

of scenes in Delaware and the surrounding area.

The choice of a local artist, talented to execute

this idea for the bank, underscores the resolution

of interest in the community which fostered the

founding of the Home Owned, Home Controlled

Bank in Delaware.

A Service Interested Bank

In addition to providing more comfort and conveni-

ence for our customers, modern fixtures have been

installed to increase and improve our service. A

New and Larger Vault, equipped with the most mod-

ern alarm system and protective vault door has

been constructed to protect the money, records

and valuable personal property of our customers.

The new Walk-Up Window in the vestibule will be

open for after-hour deposit and loan payment trans-

actions. The vestibule also encloses a new 24

Hour Night Depository, protected from the weather

and well lighted for depositing bags or envelopes

when the bank is closed. The new conference

room will afford privacy for the closing of loans,

opening of depository boxes in estate matters or

other business of a confidential nature. The en-

larged lobby area provides adequate space and

facilities to handle peak customer loads. These

are but a few of the many services made possible

by our remodeling and expansion.
