To continue First National Bank’s tradition of being a genuine Maine community bank, the custom calendars are being designed by Proforma Marketing Essentials in Camden.  

“Every year we are inspired by the spectacular photographs taken by our customers,” said Susan Norton, Executive Vice President. “Creating custom calendars that highlight our customers’ talents and the natural beauty of our state is truly a win-win scenario. We look forward to sharing our calendars this fall.”
