Full house at new TrustTexas Bank offices

A full house of well-wishers, customers, contractors, and banking personnel were on hand for the ribbon cutting celebration at the new TrustTexas Bank building on Tues., Oct. 22. Yorktown VP and Branch Manager Valda Lamprecht is shown preparing to cut the ribbon during the afternoon’s celebration.  The new bank building now occupies an area directly behind the previous bank building, which was removed to allow for the installation of a much larger parking area.  The new bank building includes a community meeting room, more teller space, more lobby space, offices, and a drive-thru ATM lane.  More details on the open house will follow next week.
