The Lakeside Bank held an open house on Thursday with the Beauregard Chamber of Commerce.

Friends, family and staff gathered as Justin Holt cut the ceremonial ribbon and Lakeside Bank became a part of the community.

Members of the Beauregard Chamber of Commerce were there to offer community support.  

Holt, who is the Executive Vice President of Lakeside Bank, shared his excitement for being back in DeRidder.  

“It’s a great feeling to be back in DeRidder and the surrounding communities and I'm looking forward to continuing to offer the best banking experience possible!

“The way banking should be is what we truly believe in and I'm excited to bring that to this great community” Holt said.

Lakeside prides itself on being a local team, a notion that could be seen in the turnout of people who came to support the bank.

Members of the bank’s Executive team and Board of Directors were in attendance, greeting guests with warm smiles and handshakes.

The office buzzed with conversation as guests mingled with staff and enjoyed the many different refreshments being offered.

The DeRidder office is the loan production office for Lakeside Bank, whose main office is in Lake Charles.
