DREAM Together Check Presentation Held for Don & Danna Simpkins
A check presentation was held on Thursday, November 17th, to present DREAM Together funds to Don & Danna Simpkins in the amount of $36,000. The Simpkins took advantage of the DREAM Together partnership program offered by FNB Bank and First Kentucky Bank. The DREAM acronym stands for Downtown Revitalization & Economic Advancement for Mayfield. Together, both Mayfield-based banks have partnered to provide incentives and low interest loans for businesses that want to rebuild and invest again in downtown Mayfield. The collective goal of FKB and FNB is to stimulate economic development and put jobs back in one of the hardest hit areas in the community.
Don & Danna Simpkins own the property and building at 304 South 6th Street in Mayfield, that houses Western Kentucky Insurance. Western Kentucky Insurance, owned by Jonathan Simpkins, was devastated by the December 10th, 2021, tornado that struck Mayfield. The building was demolished and is currently in the rebuilding stage. The newly constructed state of the art facility is anticipated to reopen in late Spring 2023 and will feature drive through access as an added convenience for its customers.
