100 Years of Bank of American Fork Jan 01, 2013, 10:00 am By Heidi Carmack Pfaffroth

It’s 2013 and Bank of American Fork is celebrating its centennial year—we opened our doors as People’s State Bank of American Fork in 1913 and our customers were mostly sheep farmers. Now we’re Bank of American Fork, but our customers are still community members and small businesses who have big dreams.

On Thursday, January 10, we’re kicking off our 100th year with a celebration at our American Fork branch, right in the same neighborhood we started out. We will celebrate with a welcome from Bank of American Fork President and CEO Richard Beard, treats reminiscent of each decade we’ve been in the community, live music, hot air balloons (weather permitting), a visual history presentation, a speech from Edward Leary, Commissioner of the Utah Department of Financial Institutions and a time capsule to open after the next 100 years. The festivities will be starting at 9:00 a.m. at our branch on 33 E. Main Street, American Fork, Utah, and we can’t wait to see you there.

    I personally love Bank Of America. i have a faerly new account so they really dont know me.I had a case to were I had cancelled a withdraw from an insurance company. Of course, they tried to take the money anyways, and made my account negative. I called Bank Of America, and spoke with a very nice rep. You can totally tell that she wanted to help me. Long Story short lets just say my account is back positive and I will be staying with them!!!
