The Rest of the Story

“The best thing about living and working in the Hallock, MN area is that I have the opportunity to do business with people I have known most of my life.”

Paul is also an avid fan of hockey, especially a certain maroon and gold team.

So what do hockey and banking have in common? Hockey great Wayne Gretzky said, “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”

Paul Craigmile will help your business get to where you want to go.
