Melanie has been employed by First National Bank for 34 years. She started her banking
career in the bookkeeping department, then worked in various other departments including
Savings, Teller, Assistant Head Teller, and for the last 20 years, Heritage Club Director and
Melanie and her husband, Gene, have been married for 46 years. They have three grown
children, Shawn, Tiffany, and Shane, as well as four beautiful granddaughters, and two
handsome grandsons. They love everything about being grandparents!
Melanie and Gene were both raised in Fairfield, but moved away after they were married.
They were fortunate to have the opportunity to return to Fairfield in 1978, raise their children
here, and be close to other family members. Melanie feels Fairfield is a very unique small
town with great diversity, and is a wonderful place to raise children.
She enjoys going to all of her grandchildren’s activities, doing crafts with her grandchildren,
hosting tea parties, reading, volunteering, and of course, traveling.
Melanie always tells people she has the very best job at the bank, saying “It is such a joy to
work with our ‘55 and Over’ customers. We have such a fun loving, enthusiastic, energetic,
compassionate group. What a pleasure to be able to help our customers make wonderful
memories. There are not many jobs where you get thank yous and hugs at the end of the
day! Who wouldn’t want to be a part of such a special group?”
Interested in joining the Heritage Club?
There are many benefits to being a member, but the highlight is the numerous travel
opportunities throughout the year. What a wonderful experience to be able to enjoy the
scenery while traveling down a highway, be dropped off at the door of a restaurant and/or
attraction, have your luggage taken to your room, and have someone else make all your
travel plans. Our members just sit back and enjoy the fellowship of friends and family, renew
old friendships, and make new friends.
Our Heritage Club has something for everyone. You can be as active as you want to be and
enjoy the many benefits we offer such as free checking, free checks, free ATM or debit card,
free photocopy service, free fax service, free lamination service, free lost key service, free
monthly newsletter, free picnics, potlucks, bingo, and seminars, no fee money orders, no fee
Notary service, and a discount on your safety deposit box.
