      When the First National Bank opened its doors in
   1870, Appleton boasted a population of 4,518. Today,
   with over 45,000 people and great industrial might,
   Appleton stands as a shining example of what progressive,
   industrious and civic minded people can do when they
   work together.
     And the First National Bank stands as an example of
   what honest, far sighted people can do when they plan
   and grow with their community. The bank's first president,
   Augustus Ledyard Smith brought the bank into being
   with $60,000 in deposits and $30,000 in loans with a capi-
   talization of $50,000.00. Today, 87 years later, capital
   funds exceed $2,500,000.00 and the bank has over 8,000
   checking accounts, 13,000 savings accounts with more
   than $38,000,000.00 in deposits.
     Yes, as Appleton celebrates its 100th birthday, we are
   proud to be serving this dynamic city and grateful for the
   opportunity to help it prosper through financial services
   to the community.
