ag lunch 1Tompkins VIST Bank recently continued its tradition of hosting an annual luncheon for agricultural customers, and this year – the fifth – was the most successful yet. Over 200 guests, more than the past years, attended the event at the Leesport Farmers Market in Berks County.  The meal included pulled pork, corn on the cob and ice cream. It was served by Tompkins VIST senior leadership and staff. Bank President and CEO Scott Gruber welcomed the group and introduced the agricultural banking team members as well as local officials.

Travis Werley, senior vice president, agricultural lending relationship manager, and his colleague, Lynette Gelsinger, agricultural relationship lender, and Valerie Heck, agricultural lending administrative assistant, were the official hosts. In addition to being bankers Travis Werley and Lynette Gelsinger, both have working farms with their families.

“You are the reason we’re here,” Werley said as he welcomed the guests. He noted that it was a privilege to work with people who are stewards of the land and who are working hard to overcome the challenges facing farmers today.
