First National Bank began asking its customers in January to submit their very best original, scenic Maine shots. All customers of First National Bank — professionals and amateurs, employees and their family members — were encouraged to enter the contest. To continue First National Bank’s tradition of being a genuine Maine community bank, the custom calendars are being designed by Proforma Marketing Essentials in Camden.  

“Every year we are amazed by the spectacular photographs taken by our customers,” said Susan Norton, executive vice president. “Producing a custom photo desk calendar that highlights our customers’ talents and the natural beauty of our state is such a win-win situation. We look forward to sharing the 2021 desk calendar this fall.”
