It's been 100 years since the BMO bank opened its doors and a lot has changed. From teller services to bank machines to the overall look of the bank, BMO has welcomed thousands of clients through the doors that sit on its original brick and mortar.

"It's an accomplishment for me," explains Drumheller BMO Branch Manager, Carmen Bliss. "I've been with BMO for nine years. It's historically one of the few branches that have been in the same building for so long. It's great."

During the 100 year celebration at the BMO branch cupcakes, cookies, coffee, and the BMO Bear mascot all welcomed BMO clients to stay, chat and enjoy the years that BMO has been inBMO (2)1959, BMO Drumhellerservice.

"It's amazing for us to be apart of a community. BMO is over 200 years old and there's not a lot of branches across the nation where we can have this celebration," said Regional Vice President, Kristen Korhonen. "It was important for us to mark it. Not only for our customers and their long-term loyalty but also for the community."

Drumheller's BMO celebrates the past as much as they celebrate the future with new team members integrating with the experienced ones as Branch Manager Bliss said, has made them stronger than ever.

One special mention to a member both Korhonen and Bliss were proud to have a part of there team was 40-year BMO veteran, Jo Dedul. Her service does not go unrecognized.
