CEO at State Nebraska Bank & Trust, Matt Ley said their employees recently hosted the Fifth annual SNB Soup Cookoff where a donation of funds and items will be utilized by the Wayne Food Pantry.

“Again, our employees’ kind of enjoy making these different soups and we all vote on them,” said Ley. “Then all of the funds that are made, and we do food as well, is all given to the food pantry. So, that’s been a fun event the last couple years as well.”

State Nebraska Bank & Trust has dealt with their challenges during the pandemic but for the most part, are back to normal.

“I think it’s been a good farm economy the last year and that’s good for our fellow citizens here,” Ley added. “The community seems to be moving along, so it’s been a good year and we’re excited to be to the end of it.”

The Campus Branch is now about 90% occupied with still a couple openings available. The gym has been busy with other events along with basketball and pickleball.

Friday morning Chamber Coffee will be held in the Main Branch with the High School choir singing before 10 a.m. as ChamberPercs on the Wayne, NE Facebook page will start at 10:15 a.m.

Ley also mentioned there’s a nice mix of employees and they really enjoy each other.

“Obviously my parents still work here, and my son is coming back over December,” Ley mentioned. “So, we’ll have three generations of Ley’s working here over Christmas. So, yeah that’s about what we have 30 people. We have people here for over 35 years and then we have people who just started this year.”
