    "As a sponsor of the Economic Lunch, it was a great opportunity for leaders from Forest Park Bank to hear from the leaders of the villages of Forest Park, Oak Park and River Forest – all communities served by our Bank. The three villages share a common destiny that can best be leveraged by learning and working together."
