Dave hosted our quarterly showcase at the F&M Bank - Belmont Shore branch. He provided information about his bank and introduced us to a few of the branch managers. The Belmont shore branch was built in 1973 and was expanded in 2002. There is a second story to the branch that is currently being rented out by another business. A few of the branch Managers and some employees were nice enough to stay after hours and talk to our members and answer any questions they had.
For over 100 years Farmers & Merchants Bank has serviced the community and provided hometown banking service. If you have any questions about F&M Bank please contact Dave Sakamoto..
