FISHERS, Ind. (Nov. 15, 2008) - To commemorate the Grand Opening of its new Fishers banking center, Ameriana hired three local photographers to capture the spirit of the community. The collection of photography, entitled All Together Fishers, was unveiled during the ribbon cutting ceremony at the banking center, located at 11521 Olio Road at 116th Street, on Wednesday evening, Nov. 12, 2008.
"Our approach to banking puts the community first," said Tim Clark, Chief Operating Officer at Ameriana. "To celebrate our community, and the many people who make it special, we created All Together Fishers."
The large collection of photography, along with a video documentary, will be on permanent display in Ameriana's Fishers banking center. The collection features hundreds of pictures of people, places and businesses in Fishers, including the historical Van Eller property, Fishers YMCA, DeVeau's School of Gymnastics, Nickel Plate, Reynolds Farm Equipment, Greek's Pizzeria, Farmers Market, Archers' Meats, Handel's ice cream, the two local high schools and many others.
"People want to have a relationship with their bank," said Lisa Washburn, a Fishers resident featured in All Together Fishers. "That's why they go to a bank that they're comfortable with. They want those personal touches from their bank, and I think that the photographs in Ameriana are one way to give that personal touch."
A free keepsake DVD was also created to give Fishers residents and those photographed and featured in All Together Fishers. "These pictures are could not have captured Fishers in a better light," said Robert Holland, Fishers Banking Center Manager. "Seeing them made me proud to be so involved in this community."
