Summit State Bank"Doing business with Summit State Bank is doing business with the quintessential small-town bank. Our recent ownership change is the perfect example of the courtesies you extend to us. Rather than making us start from scratch and submit all new paperwork, you acknowledged the length and stability of our relationship and kept the paperwork to a minimum, facilitating a smooth and efficient transition."
