We are so proud of the newly expanded main office in Sycamore where we went from 3,000 square feet to nearly 10,000 square feet of space. We had not done any renovations since the mid-1960’s, so this project was pertinent for the growth and development of our bank. I am originally from Sycamore where my parents, Eddie and Terry Doss still reside. I currently live in rural Tiffin with my husband, Don. We have two grown children, Alexa, who is a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin in Whitewater and Alicia, a graduate student at the University of Toledo.
