Thank You To Our 2024 Sponsors

Presenting Sponsor

Dragonheart Vermont is so excited to have Community Bank sign on for the SIXTH year in a row as the 2024 Presenting Sponsor for the Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival. Community Bank has been an extraordinary partner and a mainstay of the Festival for so many years - they sent a team to our very first festival in 2006 and previously sponsored our Athlete's Village.

For more than 157 years, Community Bank has helped their customers manage and improve their finances—and improve their lives. The bank’s journey started in 1866, when the first branch opened in Canton, NY. Although a lot has changed in the years that followed, one thing remains true: Their commitment to the communities across their four-state footprint.

Community Bank serves the communities they live and work in by helping businesses, donating their time to local charities, and making cash and in-kind donations—a commitment they’ve never wavered from. Employees generously donate their time, enthusiasm, and expertise toward good causes of all sizes. But it’s more than monetary gifts or in-kind donations—it’s the power of the people who make a difference in this world.

As your banking needs continue to change, Community Bank’s methods of serving its customers are changing in step. But what will never change is their neighborly demeanor and their passion for improving your financial wellbeing.

Better banking starts with trust, and Community Bank is honored to be recognized for the second year in a row as one of America’s Most Trusted Companies 2023 by Newsweek. Community Bank N.A. has consistently been ranked among the top-performing U.S. banks in America by Forbes magazine since the list was first published in 2009.
