    Kola Smith is an English yellow Labrador Retriever who has been adopted as the “Bank’s Dog”. 

    Her owner, Laurie Smith, had a dream of having a therapy dog which would provide services within the Fairfield community. To make this dream a reality, Laurie convinced our President, Aaron Kness, to allow Kola to come to the bank everyday so she could hone her training and socialization skills, which were needed for Kola to become a certified therapy dog.

    It didn’t take long for Kola to touch the hearts of all our employees and customers. Kola shares an office with Laurie at our bank on the square, but you will also see her out and about in the community, visiting schools, nursing homes, the library, and elsewhere.
