An Important Message to our New Customers

We were pleased to announce last year that First Mid reached an agreement with Soy Capital Bank and Trust last year to merge our banks. The conversion of Soy accounts to First Mid will be effective April 5, 2019, after the close of business.  Over the weekend of April 6-7, we will complete the integration of Soy accounts to the First Mid bank system.
