"The difference between our bank and the larger banks is our personal service. We value the people who choose Bank of Billings as their financial institution and I feel that our appreciation should be demonstrated by level of service our customers receive.".
"As the media broadcasts the economic perils evident on Wall Street and Main Street and as we see foreclosed homes on block after block of our communities, I hope that the public faith in banking is held firm in the small community banks that have been structured to weather these storms".
