When our late president, John Gill came to Clara City, Minnesota he made it known when he moved to the area that he was going to make sure he could be involved in local organizations. Over the last few years he was able to be an active member of two local organizations; the Clara City Lions Club and the Clara City Area Community Foundation.

Last week, Interim President, Chad Forkrud presented a $10,000 donation to each of these organizations on behalf of Citizens Alliance Bank in memory of John Gill. Over the next few months, our organization will also be making memorial donations to various organizations in each of our communities that we have branch locations in. When accepting the donation, John Donner, President of the Clara City Area Community Foundation, was quoted as saying, “John knew that having an established community foundation is such a positive aspect for the community and he worked diligently to help make the foundation successful. Now through the generosity of Citizens Alliance Bank, this donation in memory of John will have an everlasting impact on the City of Clara City. Through this legacy, John Gill’s life examples will continue to live on.”
