“It was the right thing to do,” said Bill Strohm, executive vice president of Farmers National Bank, of the decision to donate the Berry Branch to the city of Berry.
The Berry Branch closed on Dec. 31, 2011.
Christine Philpot, Berry city clerk, said her career has now come full circle.
For 28 years Philpot was a bank teller at the two-story building that sits at the corner of Main and South Second streets. When she retired in 2008, she had gone through four bank robberies and was ready to be out of that building.
