Sturgeon Bay Bake Sale Raises $1,665 for Victims of Fire

Bake SaleAfter a fire at the Orchard Estates apartment complex displaced a number of families and residents, our Sturgeon Bay East branch organized a bake sale on March 4 to raise funds to help. The community came together to help with the event for a good cause. The bake sale raised $1,665, and North Shore Bank contributed another $500. Prince of Peace Lutheran Church opened an account to accept donations for victims of the fire and all the money made from the bake sale was donated to help with the relief fund for families in need. We are thankful to those who supported our bake sale fundraiser and the victims of the Orchard Estates apartment fire in Sturgeon Bay. View photos.
 

Many Questions Answered at Mortgage Lending Seminars

We offered presentations on a variety of topics that allowed attendees to learn more about their credit and things like how to properly stage a home, and when and when not to update your home when you’re looking to sell. We also discussed new mortgage regulations and the right time to get started on the mortgage process. Thank you to everyone who attended. Our mortgage lending team is eager to offer their expert guidance and insight anytime you need it. Find a lender near you or visit our website to learn more and apply for a mortgage loan
