Community First plans new location in Vermillion Community First National Bank, Vermillion, has announced that plans are underway to move its financial services operations to a new location in Vermillion, pending regulatory approval.
"Community First and the community of Vermillion are poised to reach another milestone together," said Roxi Miller, bank president. "Community First plans to open another building that will meet clients' needs more efficiently and provide an updated financial services facility that reflects changes in the banking industry."

Though in the initial planning stages, it's expected a new Community First building will be ready for occupancy in the fall of 2004.
"Our new building will be very client focused," said Miller. "As part of the community, we want to partner with various groups to continue to enhance the community. It's an exciting opportunity to provide financial services in a new stetting."
Community First has served the residents of Vermillion since 1987.
