First Port City Bank (FPCB), Bainbridge, voted “Best Bank” in Decatur County will celebrate its 45th anniversary. Community members and customers are encouraged to stop by any of our First Port City Bank branches on Friday, November 22 from 11:00am to 1:00pm where each location will be offering prizes and refreshments.

First Port City Bank was founded in 1974 by a group of local business people who believed that the owners of a financial institution should be made up of friends and neighbors within the community. Our roots run deep, and we are grateful for the tremendous support we have received. While many things have changed over our 45 years, operating as a true community bank is one thing that has remained constant. We pride ourselves on serving our wonderful community in an effort to help improve the quality of life for everyone.

“On October 7th, we reached our 45-year anniversary and I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of our Customers, Founders, Shareholders, Directors, and of course our wonderful Staff who have made us a success,” said Scott Ewing, President & CEO of First Port City Bank. “ Our 45 years of operations have been met with many challenges including one of the most significant modern day recessions in history, and we remained steadfast in our mission and resolve to manage through the times and become what we are today, which is a high performing financial institution and a true community partner.”
