Business of the Quarter
Elma Chamber of Commerce Presents Timberland Bank with Business of the Quarter Award
The Elma Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors presented the Business of the Quarter Award, for the second quarter of 2012, to Timberland Bank. Chamber President, Rick Jensen, presented the plaque at the Elma Chamber Meeting, May 9th held at the Microtel Inn & Suites.
Timberland Bank was voted Business of the Quarter by the Chamber membership because of their strong community support and enhancement to our community. Timberland generously supports the community in many ways. The employees are encouraged to invest time in activities and organizations that add to the quality of life we all enjoy. Within the Elma Chamber of Commerce Timberland employees have served in all the offices on the board and chaired or served on committees.
Timberland Bank generously supports with donations. Each year the bank earmarks thousands of dollars to assist with local needs including, Chamber of Commerce, youth, sports teams, non-profit organizations, fundraising for the new hospital and Relay for Life. They are also annual supporters of the Elma Food Bank and United Way.
The Elma branch joined Timberland Bank in the fall of 2004 when the bank agreed to purchase seven branches from the former Venture Bank. The Timberland Bank building was recently given a new coat of paint helping to improve the downtown business community. They are also working on many technology enhancements to better serve their customers.
There are a dozen employees in the Elma branch and the bank employs 270 in Western Washington. Timberland Bank’s philosophy of investing in their communities through generous charitable giving, employee involvement in the communities, and support of local programs makes them a great choice for Business of the Quarter!
