Written by: Susan Richwine |

Richmond, Indiana – First Bank Richmond announced today that they will donate $25,000 to Forest Hills Country Club.
Nestled in more than 162 rolling acres on the southeast side of Richmond, Indiana, Forest Hills Country Club offers an exciting array of opportunities for everyone. With the richness and depth of the community's premier country club, Forest Hills provides its members and their guests a myriad of social, recreational, and relaxing opportunities, from playing eighteen holes of golf on a beautiful, challenging course to splashing in the pool to enjoying fine dining with friends indoors or outdoors on the patio, overlooking the golf course. The contribution will be applied to the Rose Room renovations within the club.

“The contribution received from the First Bank Foundation will allow us the capability of attracting businesses to hold meetings and events with new and updated technology in the First Bank Rose Room.” – Tara See, General Manager, Forest Hills Country Club
