Summit Community Bank Celebrates Okemos Anniversary With Chocolate Cake!

Okemos, MI September 24, 2008 – Summit Community Bank will celebrate the one year anniversary of its Okemos location. In keeping with the long time tradition of Bill Knapp’s restaurant, the Bank will serve chocolate cake, and offer special bank promotions.


Summit Community Bank opened its second full-service banking center at 2151 West Grand River Avenue in Okemos last September. The Okemos office sits on the former site of the well-known Bill Knapp’s restaurant – a gathering place for family celebrations for many years.


 A weeklong Anniversary Celebration will take place September 29 through October 4. In the tradition of Bill Knapp’s, the Bank will serve chocolate cake in their lobby to all visitors. There will also be certificate of deposit specials, other bank promotions and gifts during the week. Everyone in the community is welcome to join in the celebration.


“We are pleased to be a part of the Okemos community,” said Summit Community Bank Market Manager Adam Goss.  “Our Okemos office is located on the major thoroughfare where Bill Knapp’s was located for many years.  Many of our customers jokingly ask when we are going to serve Bill Knapp’s Chocolate Cake. So, we thought we would start to honor our anniversaries with this long-standing tradition. We hope our customers and the public will join us.”


In its short history, Summit Community Bank has developed a reputation for its customer-focused and friendly staff. “The professionals serving in our Okemos office continue to build on our commitment to creative, focused and mindful customer service,” Goss said. “This celebration is a small way for us to say thank you for allowing us to serve the Okemos Community.”


The Bank sits on the site of the former Bill Knapp’s restaurant just west of Okemos Road. An entirely new structure was developed on the property.  New and existing customers appreciate the new facility’s welcoming lobby, drive-thru lanes with a drive-thru ATM and convenient location near shopping centers and local offices.


Summit Community Bank is a full-service financial institution with offices in East Lansing and Okemos, MI.  The Bank was formed over five years ago by local business leaders with an emphasis on the customer and the community.
