Customer-owners and Industry Partners,
In an effort to continue to keep you posted, I am writing to assure you that we remain open for business! While our offices remain closed to non-employees, the entire team is working daily to provide you with the responsiveness you deserve during this unusual season. Thank you for your understanding and willingness to conduct business just a little differently!
President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation creating the Federal Land Bank System in 1916, and the Farm Credit System is currently the largest single source of rural financing in the United States. Our mission to support rural communities and agriculture remains just as critical today as it was more than 100 years ago.
National Agriculture Day was March 24th. Lone Star staff are usually active in our communities and offices educating and celebrating our great industry. This year because of COVID-19, all activities were cancelled. Our team took the opportunity, however, to make donations to local food pantries in almost all our communities. One pantry said the donation would help feed more than 200 people in their county for a full week. When you seek opportunities to be generous amazing things will happen.
We all know that our way of life has changed, but our mission to support rural communities and agriculture is our focus. We appreciate what you do daily by feeding and clothing America! Together as we go above and beyond for others, we will continue to provide reliable, consistent credit and financial services for everything outside the city limits.
Please reach out and let us know how we can better serve you. Thank you again for your continued support and business, most importantly, stay safe!
Chief Executive Officer
