"Spring Is A Great Time!" – A Message From Paul Skorheim, President

"Spring Is A Great Time!" – A Message From Paul Skorheim, President

With the lack of snow this past winter, it feels like we’ve been in Spring for quite a while already! Spring is a great time to plan those home improvement projects, home additions or even buying a different home.  We have many loan options to fit almost any budget.  Please contact one of our Loan Officers for details.

We started our major remodeling project in our Long Prairie Office in January.  Thank you to all our customers and staff for conducting business and working in the north portion of the building during the construction.  Phase One of the project has wrapped up and our staff and customers are now able to use the south portion of the building.  We expect construction on the north portion of the building to be completed by mid-June.  We are also refurbishing our parking lot which should be completed by the end of June.  We will have a new drive-up ATM so please watch for these exciting changes coming soon!

Our Bank was recently given an “Outstanding” rating for the Community Reinvestment Act by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). This is the highest rating possible granted by the OCC. The evaluation is performed every 5 years. Our staff works extremely hard to support the communities we serve with loans and financial products. We are honored to be specifically chosen as one of a few small banks to receive this rating throughout Minnesota in 2015.

Our bank has also started offering Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace University” classes at our offices.  Our first class started in April in Sauk Centre.  Dave Ramsey is a well-known financial authority, radio host, television personality and motivational speaker.  The class will give you lifelong lessons to use in how to win with your money.  We plan to have classes in Long Prairie and Pelican Rapids later this year.

If you use a smart phone please be sure to use our Minnesota National Bank app.  Our app is very convenient and was recently upgraded so you can also view your checks, statements and more.  Also be sure to check out our text notifications through our internet banking platform. You can be notified by text when your balance falls below a certain level or when a large debit or credit goes out or in to your account.  You can also easily check your deposit and loan balances by texting 89549.  Please contact or see one of our Personal Bankers for details.

As always, a Big Thank You for doing business with Minnesota National Bank.  We appreciate your business and support.  Have a great summer!  – Paul
