Bank President John Kavalier said, “It has been a pleasure to have worked with Bill at our bank for the past 28 years. I want to thank Bill for his years of loyal service to the bank and substantial contributions towards the success our bank has enjoyed. “I will sincerely miss Bill’s daily participation in our management team. I wish Bill and his wife, Patty, an enjoyable and prosperous retirement. Bill will continue to serve on our bank’s board of directors where he can continue to serve the bank with his many years of experience.”
In response to Bill Skow’s retirement plans the bank’s board of directors has promoted Donna Princehouse to the position of Executive Vice President and Cashier.
Donna has also been elected to serve on the bank’s board of directors. Donna has been employed with the bank for 33 years, most recently as Senior Vice President and Cashier.

Donna and husband, Merlyn have two sons, Chad (Angie) Princehouse, Toledo, and Nathan (Michelle) Princehouse, Urbandale, and six grandchildren.
