At Old Plank Trail Community Bank, we love to participate in local celebrations, parades and other special events. We are proud to support and sponsor many local charitable and service organizations, and we also love to host events for our customers and our communities!
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!"

American Cancer Society Relay for Life
We were proud to be a part of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life on Friday, July 11th, 2014. In addition to our bank’s Relay team, we also chaired the Entertainment Committee, and hosted bank night. It was a successful Relay and we were happy to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society!
Movies and Music in the Park
From 6/2 through 8/28, every Thursday the Village of Shorewood has hosted family friendly movies and musical acts in the Village’s Towne Center Park. Shorewood Bank & Trust was present and participated in every event this year by serving snow cones and popcorn to the community. We are happy to be a part of something so great!

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.
Donation to The Lincolnway Special Recreation Association
Old Plank Trail Community Bank believes in servicing the needs of the community beyond simply providing banking solutions. With this mission in mind, Paul Slade, Chairman & CEO, and Andrea Rudolph, New Lenox Facility Manager, recently presented the Lincolnway Special Recreation Association with a $1,000.00 check. The check was accepted by Keith Wallace, Executive Director and Abby Billips, Superintendent of Recreation for the Association’s Scholarship program. Funded through donations, The Lincolnway Special Recreation Association’s Scholarship program provides financial assistance for low to moderate income residents, allowing them to participate in life-enhancing recreation and therapeutic programs.
