Free, open to the public event to feature Henderson’s who’s who

HENDERSON, Nev. – Valley Bank of Nevada will host a grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 31, for its newest Southern Nevada location at 4343 E. Sunset Road in Henderson. The event is free to attend and open to the public.

For the first year, Valley Bank of Nevada’s Henderson location will serve the Henderson community as a loan center with plans to open as a full-service branch by mid-2016.

At 5 p.m. Aug. 31, City of Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen will officiate a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Following the ribbon cutting, James York, president and CEO of Valley Bank, and Robert “Bobby” Ellis, community philanthropist and bank chartered shareholder, will present the Henderson Libraries Foundation with a donation. Made in accordance with the bank’s philosophy to assist with the ongoing growth of the community, the donation will be given to the foundation in thanks for Henderson Libraries’ contribution of old Henderson photos from the district’s Henderson Memories photo collection to Valley Bank to display.

The bank, which is also celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, will host numerous prize drawings during the event.

In addition to Hafen, Ellis and York, the following are scheduled to attend the Aug. 31 event: Robert “Bob” Mendenhall, original bank founder and chartered shareholder; Terry Stimson, chairman of Valley Bank of Nevada’s board of directors; D.J. Allen, chairman of Valley Bank of Nevada’s Henderson advisory board and founder of Xs and Os of Success; Dave Rice, UNLV Runnin’ Rebels head coach; Stavros S. Anthony, Las Vegas City councilman Ward 4; Michael Montandon, former North Las Vegas mayor and bank director; Angela Thornton, executive director of Henderson Libraries; Scott Muelrath, president/CEO of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce; and many more who’s who of the Henderson community.

As part of the bank’s grand opening, Valley Bank is running a loan sale, where it will lend – up to five-year term and 25-year amortization – at 3.99 percent APR without points or bank fees. During the sale, anyone who is approved for a new commercial loan will receive a free gift.
