Teaching Children to Save
The faster we can teach our children to save, the better our future will be! Security Bank recently participated in a UT Extension Project promoting money savings and the benefits of starting at an early age. We had a blast going to Dyersburg Primary School and making savings banks with the Second Grade Students. They were so creative and eager to start saving their money. Security Bank even gave them all a gold dollar to start their saving plan off right!
Spreading Christmas Cheer in 2013

Feeding our Community One Month at a Time
We at Security Bank realize how fortunate we are to have a great place to work, a roof over our heads, and food in our stomachs. We also realize not everyone is a fortunate as us. This is one reason we have participated in the Feed the Need program for 4 years now. Once a month we help bag food, check in participants, and hand out food to those in need. We strive to make our community a better place than the day before!
We LOVE Fair Week!
Security Bank is proud to sponsor Special Needs Day and the Century Farmer's Dinner at the Dyer County Fair. The Dyer County Fair is one of the top fairs in the whole state, and we are blessed to help make it that way. We love feeding the special needs children in our community each year as well as feeding the farm families who have been in Dyer County for over 100 years.
