Tom Maxwell, President of the Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust speaking to stockholders at their annual meeting. Story & Picture by Donn Williams - Director of Marketing

Tom Maxwell speaking to stockholders

News about the local economy has been a mix of good and bad, Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust President Tom Maxwell told the bank’s stockholders during the annual meeting of F&M Bankshares Inc., Tuesday, Feb. 8.

  Maxwell said the best news the community has received was the announcement by the Navy, Dec. 29, that Lockheed Martin and Marinette Marine have been awarded a multi-million dollar contract to build 10 more Littoral Combat Ships.

  “The Lockheed Martin team received a $491 million contract that could be worth as much as $4 billion when all options are exercised,” Maxwell said. “Right now there are about 850 employees at Marinette Marine. This contract should add up to 1,000 jobs locally. Hiring would start late this summer with about 45 (people) hired each month.”

  In addition, at least 250 subcontractors in the area will be involved in the project and they too will be adding jobs.

  “This is the most significant economic news in years,” Maxwell added. “It will not only create jobs, but increase retail sales, increase home values, increase school enrollment, and generate additional tax revenue for state and local governments.”

  Maxwell cited other recent job growth in the community.
·        Waupaca Foundry, one of Marinette’s major employers, has seen an increase in orders and as a result hired about 120 new employees. The workforce there now has grown to 725.
·        Nu Vu Food Service Systems in Menominee, which manufactures ovens nationally for Subway, has announced it will be hiring to fill new jobs that have been created.
·        Anchor Coupling, a major Menominee employer, has also hired additional workers.
·        And work continues on Ansul’s Engineering Center for Excellence at the company’s test field site.

  The most discouraging economic news is that some local industries are struggling with layoffs and shortened work weeks for employees.

  Maxwell is looking ahead to the remainder of 2011 with “cautious optimism.” “We’re still in a recession with high unemployment and a depressed housing market - we’re not out of the woods yet,” he concluded. “The Marinette Marine contract – while it’s fantastic news – it’s going to take a while for the benefits to be felt, probably the better part of a year before we see any affects from that.”

2010 Chamber Golf Outing
"Golf through the Years"
 
MARINETTE – The Marinette Menominee Area Chamber of Commerce (MMACofC) held its annual golf outing August 31, 2010 at Little River Country Club.  The theme of the event was “Golf through the Years.” Golfers were encouraged to wear old-time golf garb. The event, which typically attracts about 150 golfers, included dinner and awards.
 
“The golf outing is the chamber’s major fund raising event of the year. Proceeds from this event help us help local businesses in a variety of ways,” notes Mary Johns, chamber executive director.  “The business of the chamber is business and we try to use the profits from this event to help our businesses thrive.”
 
Businesses were invited to become a hole sponsor. A sign at the hole proclaimed the business' sponsorship. Businesses were also invited you to come up with a special game for their sponsored hole, and even post a company representative at the hole. One enterprising member gave a way cookies in a plastic bag one year, along with her business card.
 
The Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust, a long-time supporter of the MMACofC sponsored a hole again this year.  Tammy Billock and her son Jacob took the theme of "Golf through the Years" seriously and dressed the part.  In addition to that, Tammy devised a nostalgia game from a poster board with pictures of our bank's Presidents since 1902 as well as several bank Officers who were not Presidents. Golfers had to choose two pictures of people who were not presidents.  Tammy and her son awarded a prize to those who guessed correctly.  Jacob also displayed an old golf club on loan from Mike Piasecki, VP & Loan Officer at the bank.
 
Thanks to Cindy Bailey of the UW-Marinette and Theater on The Bay for Tammy's costume, John & Julie Nutter of Menominee High School for Jacob’s costume and Mike for the use of the club...

2010 Relay For Life


A team of walkers from Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust raised close to $2,000 for the American Cancer Society at the Relay for Life held at Higley Stadium in Marinette. Walkers circled the track from 6 p.m. Friday, June 25 until 7 a.m. Saturday, June 26. The members of the bank's team included employees Mike Piasecki, Sue Porter, Angie Salewsky, and Marguerite Lozier. Members of Lozier’s family also participated. Relay for Life was conducted this year with a “birthday” theme. Participants were asked to bake and decorate cakes. A contest was held to select the “best cake.” People voted by purchasing tickets and depositing them into containers next to the cakes. The Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust cake, made by Lozier’s niece Tammy Bulin, received the most votes and earned the “best cake” honor. That cake and others in the competition were raffled. Proceeds from the raffle and “best cake” voting were included in the money raised by the teams participating and donated to the American Cancer Society.

The Hoagland Trust  Donation

The Hoagland Trust has made its first $1,500 donation to the M&M Great Lakes Sport Fishermen to cosponsor the annual Kids Fishing Derby. This year’s derby was held at the Menominee Marina Saturday, June 12.

  Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust President Thomas Maxwell announced last year that the Hoagland Trust would become a major sponsor of the event. The bank is the trustee of the trust fund established by Joseph “Shorty” Hoagland of Marinette, who died in 1985.

  Hoagland was an avid fisherman who had a soft spot in his heart for children, despite having none of his own. He left behind a trust of more than $90,000 with the wish that interest earned by the money be used to provide activities for kids that would make them happy.

  The M&M Great Lakes Sport Fishermen has been conducting the Kids Fishing Derby each June for the past 25 years. 

  The event annually attracts close to 400 youngsters, along with their parents and guardians. Thousands of dollars in prizes are given away each year to participants, who are also served food and refreshments.

Robert O. Angwall named Director Emeritus
News Release - Marinette, WI  - 02/16/10:
Robert Angwall Director Emeritus 020910
(Click image for a full size picture)

In recognition of his 29 years of dedicated service on the board of directors of Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust, Robert O. Angwall has been named Director Emeritus.

President Tom Maxwell presented Angwall with a plaque Feb. 9, during Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust’s annual shareholders meeting at the bank’s downtown Marinette location, 1644 Ludington St. Angwall is retiring from the board.

“He’s been a valued advisor who has always done what he thinks is best for the bank,” Maxwell said. “When Bob was elected to the board in 1981 it was a difficult time. His courage and support will never be forgotten.”

Angwall, one of the bank’s longest serving directors, was a member of the board’s personnel and loan committees.

During his tenure, the bank in 2000 constructed a new building at 2811 Roosevelt Road to house its Marinette branch, and in 2006 added a new branch at 114 S. U.S 141 in Crivitz.

Angwall said he is pleased to have played a role in the bank’s growth. His greatest satisfaction came from seeing the vital role the bank and its employees play in the lives of the people they serve. “We always encouraged people be active in the community,” he said.

Angwall, 91, of Marinette is a retired businessman. He was vice president of Angwall-Dormer cold storage and commercial fishing in Menominee; he and his late wife, Merlaine, were the owners of a downtown Marinette dress shop; he was owner and president of companies involved in gas and oil drilling in the U.S., Canada and Australia; and a licensed ship captain who delivered vessels constructed at Marinette Marine and other shipyards to their owners.

He also served on the Marinette County Board.

Angwall has two children and four grandchildren. His son Lloyd Angwall and his wife Rita live in Green Bay. His daughter Merlaine (Peanuts) Zarbano and her husband John live in Oshkosh
