Cookouts have started for 2016!

First City Bank Cookouts.

The spring and summer of 2016 brought monthly cookouts where the First City Bank team and our great customers were able to enjoy a burger and the outdoors. This year Mike, owner of Coaches Quarters, brought out one of his executive buses out for a cookout. We raised over 200 dollars for the Capital City Human society. Way to go First City Bank Customers!!!!!!

Are you missing the fun?






Congratulations to our 2016 Customer Appreciation Winners!


We raised over $200 for the Capital Area Humane Society during the cookouts.

Celebrate the 2015 Holiday Season.

First City Bank Experience is the difference!

First City Bank kicks off the Holiday season with Customer Appreciation Week. Customer Appreciation Week gives us a chance to give back to our customers and show them how much we appreciate them. We decorate the lobby, provide treats and give them a chance to win several wonderful prizes.


This year’s prizes included $50 gift card from our local business clients like Chocolate Café’, Star & Northwest Auto, Arlington Car Care and flowers from 5th Avenue Floral., two tickets to OSU Men’s Basketball game, OSU Football print and our Grand prize: Dinner at Forno restaurant and two Blue Jacket tickets.



We wrapped up the week with a free lunch for our customers. This year we served up homemade pulled pork sandwiches, and the fixings.


We also assist in helping those in need.

Chamber of Commerce

This year we have partnered with the local Upper Arlington Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Coat Drive, establishing a drop off site for new or slightly used coats and gloves.



We have also partnered with the Boulevard Presbyterian Church collecting Peanut Butter, boxes of cereal and homemade cookies for their community care packages.


First City Bank is also appreciative of their employees, hosting a wonderful sit down dinner and fellowship at Graystone Wine Cellar, located in the Historic Brewery District.





There are only a few true community banks left in the area, and fewer that are family owned. So, we are proud to remain a part of that tradition of having that local touch with personal service and over 200 years of combined experience. First City Bank’s autonomy and local decision making creates the flexibility to design loans to fit the needs of local businesses.
