BALDWIN, WI – It was an unseasonably warm evening for football in Baldwin, but a good night for a tailgate party on Friday, September 22.

The First Bank of Baldwin held the first of three 2017 Customer Appreciation Tailgate parties that evening serving about 580 people brats, hot dogs, sauerkraut, pasta salad, chips and for dessert Culver’s Custard and A&W root beer floats and cookies.

In addition to a nice meal, members of the State Champion B-W Marching Blackhawks Band and Cheerleaders stopped in for a nice performance. There was also a fun bouncy-house activity for the kids.

By stopping in at three of five information stops in the air-conditioned comfort of the bank, customers could learn about these services: Online Banking, Phone Banking, Personal Banking, Mobile App & Bridge Investment Group. Those that did got a card stamped that was entered for a chance to win some nice prizes.

The winner of the 32” flat screen TV was Bryan Cronk.  The other gift card winners were Eric Fennern, Jessica Paulson, Gary Jancoski and Jodi Fedie.  Kid winners were Hadley Nygaard, Kylie Kastel and Adam Dodge JR. 

There was a similar First Bank of Baldwin 2017 Customer Appreciation Tailgate Party in Spring Valley for those customers of the Spring Valley Branch of the bank.

According to First Bank of Baldwin Marketing Director Ryma Lindquist, “We had beautiful weather for the Spring Valley Customer Appreciation Tailgate Party.  Over 250 customers joined us to eat and sign up for prizes.” That event was on Friday, September 29.

The Bank will also be throwing one more Customer Appreciation Tailgate Party at the Plum City Branch this Friday, October 6.

This bank knows how to appreciate their customers and throw a good Tailgate Party!
