How is it even possible that we are already over half way through January! Tonight (January 17, 2020) we are getting a winter storm that will be lasting until Saturday (January 18, 2020). It’s estimated that we are in the range to get 4-8 inches of snow, along with high winds on Saturday. This storm will be affecting the roads and the ability to see in Independence, Lake Hallie, and Elk Mound. The employees at Independence State Bank want to inform everyone to drive careful and stay warm!



  • On February 1st, the town of Independence will be hosting their 61st annual Ice Fishing Contest and Jamboree! This is a HUGE event that is enjoyed by many.

You may have noticed that if you stop at any of the branches on Fridays, you will see that the employees are wearing jeans. Independence State Bank has a program where employees can pay money to wear jeans on Fridays. The money that is collected, gets donated to a charity or organization of that branches choice! The Independence branch has chosen to donate their 1st quarter money to the Independence First Responders!
