Senior Vice President James Merritt was in attendance at the ceremony, introducing the community at large to the new staff and new location.

“We’re very blessed to have such a great team and management that helped put this together and got us to this point,” Merritt said. “It’s a great blessing to have it here in the heart of town, where we can better serve our folks, our families, our soldiers and to better serve an area that we’re so connected to.”
