To the Editor:
Your March 7 story about the Raue Center sustainability agreement reports that the Raue, the CLCCA and the city all benefit, and “Crystal Lake is the type of community that comes together for the common good.”
I would add that the community of Crystal Lake benefits from Home State Bank, a true community bank.
Without the generosity of Home State Bank, there would be no sustainability agreement.
Like the Raue, Lakeside Center also is sustained because of Home State Bank.
Thank you to the board and shareholders of Home State Bank who clearly believe in the intangible value a community bank brings to its community.
