Greetings!

Fowler State Bank is committed to providing you sound tools to meet your financial needs.  We sincerely appreciate your confidence in Fowler State Bank, and would encourage you to contact your favorite representative with any questions about our financial products.


The 2014 Annual Shareholders meeting of Benton Financial Corporation was held at its offices on Monday April 21st. The following is a condensed excerpt from the President’s letter to shareholders:

2013 was a decent year for Benton Financial Corporation. Earnings per share of $2.02, while stable, decreased by 45 cents per share from the previous record setting year. Return on average assets were a respectable 1.07%.   For the third time in as many years, Benton Financial Corporation increased the cash dividend to shareholders.

In the month of May, Fowler State Bank will be running a double points promotion on all Fowler State Bank Credit Cards!  If you are interested in applying for a Fowler State Bank ScoreCard, click here to fill out our new & improved online application. 

Between your generosity & that of our Fowler State Bank employees, we were able to collect $508 to be donated to the Riley Hospital Kids Caring & Sharing project.  The donation was made by Christopher Williams to Tilly Marlatt in coordination with the Attica High School Dance Marathon which was held on April 12th.  The dance marathon is an annual event that helps raise funds for this worthy cause.


Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Fowler State Bank’s annual “Go Green” Shred Day.  This year we will be hosting the event on Saturday, June 7th at our main office in Fowler.  So don’t forget to swing by between 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. with all of your shredding, and please remember to bring a monetary or dry goods donation for the local food pantries as well.


Fowler State Bank’s main office will be holding a customer appreciation snack day on Friday, May 30th.  Don’t forget to stop by & get your treat!  We truly appreciate all of you, our loyal customers, and we would like to say thank you!

If the password to your computer network is PASSWORD, and you haven’t been hacked yet, you’re lucky. Unfortunately, even after all the news about identity theft and threats to our online security, many people still rely on passwords that are easy to remember, and thus ridiculously easy to guess. Online security firm Spiderlab says the most common passwords are still in use. The top 20:

123456, 111111, adobe1, 123456789, photoshop, macromedia, password, 123123, azerty, admin, 1234567890, iloveyou, 12345678, 000000, aaaaaa, qwerty, abc123, 654321, 1234567, & 1234

If you recognize your own password on this list, maybe it’s time you switched to another one, pronto.  A strong password has the following characteristics:   It should be at least eight characters long, should not contain your user name, real name, or company name, should not contain a complete word, should be significantly different from previous passwords, and should contain characters from each of the following four categories: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, & characters.


We appreciate your business and interest in Fowler State Bank.  If there is anything we can do for you, please Contact Us at one of our four convenient offices to speak with your favorite representative.

Again, we appreciate your patronage!

Sincerely,

Fowler State Bank
