BOM holds Groundbreaking Ceremony at new branch location in Woodworth

BOM will hold a Groundbreaking Ceremony of its newest location in Woodworth on Thursday, May 25 at 10:30 am! Refreshments will be served. The event is being held in conjunction with the Central Louisiana Regional Chamber of Commerce.

BOM Bank is excited to begin construction in Woodworth. This full service location will be the first stand-alone bank in the town. It will serve as the fifth location for BOM in Rapides Parish and its nineteenth location in total. For residents of Woodworth, this means no longer having to travel for banking.

The Town of Woodworth has experienced an increase in growth over the past five years as families and businesses spread out across Rapides Parish. What was once just a sawmill town, now has a growing economy. Outdoor recreation, conference centers and great education all make Woodworth an attractive location for newcomers. BOM looks forward to providing needed banking services to all residents.

Mayor David C. Butler, II has served his hometown in this role for 41 years. He said, “As you go through life you need a pastor, a lawyer and a good banker. I look forward to a lasting relationship with BOM.”

BOM Bank is a certified Community Development Financial Institution with a focus on volunteerism and servicing the unbanked and underbaked population. It offers tailored resources including a credit builder program and a certified BankOn checking account for those outside of the mainstream financial system and those working to have healthy financial habits.
