At Forte Bank so much of what we do is about how we’re giving back to the community — whether that’s in the form of employee volunteer hours, a financial contribution for a community project, or just our business philosophy and how we serve customers.
Our Community Center blog spotlights bank events, financial education and financial security topics that we think are important you know about, and activities going on in and around Washington County.
With seven years of experience owning and operating a ski resort in Wild Rose, Wis., Rick Schmitz, along with brothers Mike and Dave, purchased Little Switzerland in Slinger, Wis., after it had been closed for five seasons. Little Switz reopened for the 2012-13 season and the response has been tremendous. In the last four years, the Schmitz brothers have exceeded most of their initial goals and have been able to reinvest in improvements that they thought would take longer to tackle.
