Central California Community Bank’s Prather location got a brand new remodel and is ready for business.

Central Valley Community Bank has held a relationship with the Central Sierra town since 1982, when it established a branch in Shaver Lake, which relocated to Prather in 1987. The same Prather location, 29430 Auberry Rd., has been rebuilt from the ground up.

The reconstructed 2,500-square-foot banking center offers an ATM, night depository and safe deposit boxes. It also offers digital banking products, personal lending, home construction and permanent loans, business lending and cash management services.

“We are thrilled with the completion of our new Banking Center in Prather, which began construction in June 2020. Our incredible team operated out of a small temporary location throughout construction, remaining open during the historic Creek Fire and the pandemic. The dedication they have shown to our clients, the region and our Company is nothing short of incredible,” said CEO Jim Ford.

The full-service bank will hold a month-long grand opening for clients and the community to tour the new banking center during business hours, starting today. 

It will also celebrate local businesses with 20 enter-to-win opportunities for gift cards, which will be drawn daily from June 3 to June 30. Gift cards are to businesses from the foothill communities from Shaver Lake and Lakeshore. 

It has also made a donation to the Central Sierra Resiliency Fund’s Seedlings of Hope program, which helps plant 200 seedlings in the forests affected by the Creek Fire in Fresno County. 

Shannon Millican leads the Prather banking center as vice president and banking center manager.

“We remain steadfast in our commitment to the Central Sierra region and will do our best to continue to greet the community with a smile as we help them rebuild their businesses and homes,” Ford said.
