“On behalf of the Economic Development Authority, we welcome First Sentinel Bank to Bland County,” stated David Dillow, Chairman of the Bland County Economic Development Authority. “Bland County has a strong local economy and it is exciting anytime we can celebrate the growth of an existing or new business.”
“Today was another good day for Bland County,” stated Stephen Kelley, member of the Bland County Board of Supervisors. “Not only did Bland County obtain another business, we gained another business that is an active supporter of the community.
