The Farmers Bank has made a $5,000 contribution to the Kirklin Street Scape project. The contribution made it possible for Kirklin to receive the Main Street Revitalization Grant. The money will be used to repair sidewalks, improve lighting and bring additional trees to downtown Kirklin.

“The Farmers Bank has been a proud member of the Kirklin community since 1948. As a community bank, relationships drive everything we do,” said Karen Gregerson, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Farmers Bank. “Relationships between our employees, customers, and communities are built by working together toward common goals, identifying and responding to needs along the way. The directors, management team, and employees of The Farmers Bank are pleased to support the Kirklin Street Scape project and the residents of Kirklin, Indiana to further develop their beautiful downtown.”

“This investment in downtown Kirklin brings hope once again to the local residents and businesses,” said Jim Mann, President of Kirklin Main Street. “It brings a safer place to live and work along with a sense of pride back to our community. The partnership between The Farmers Bank and the Town of Kirklin is invaluable, and we look forward to working together to help better our community.”
