Bank 1st of West Union presented a check for $2,000 Jan. 8 to the St. Lucas Historical Society.

Jim Moss, representing the board of directors of Bank 1st, stated, “This donation is in honor of the late Mark Mihm, a long-time board member of Bank 1st and resident of St. Lucas. This donation represents the Bank’s philosophy of giving back to the community. Bank 1st maintains a branch bank in St. Lucas.”

Clair Blong, representing the St. Lucas Historical Society, expressed the heartfelt thanks and appreciation of the society for this generous donation for the upgrading of the electrical wiring and the installation of LED lighting in the exhibit and study rooms in the German American Museum. This work will help update the museum’s electrical system and lighting to current needs and standards.
