Farmers and Merchant Bank

November 19, 2013 – Farmers & Merchants Bank recognized members of the local community as part of its annual “People You Can Bank On” awards at a luncheon held November 12 at Parkers’ Lighthouse in Long Beach. This year’s 11 honorees represent individuals from the South Bay and Orange County for their contributions to their community, including four from Long Beach. “In an era when people doing right are often overlooked, we find it particularly rewarding to identify these award winners and, indeed, call them winners,” W. Henry Walker, president of Farmers & Merchants Bank, said in a statement.” The good deeds they do in their communities make all of us winners -- and we thank them.” Pictured, from left, are: W. Henry Walker; Dr. Hanna Alexander, audiologist from Torrance and winner of the Achievement Award; Melvin K. Pasley of Pasley Realty Sales and Property Management in Lakewood, winner of the Helping Hand Award; Helen Irlen, founder of the Irlen Institute International in Long Beach and winner of the Pioneer Award (see story in Women In Business, Section B of this edition); Dr. Edward Glassberg and Dr. Byrna Kane, dermatologists with Laser Skin Care Center in Long Beach and winners of the Compassion Award; Jack Berro of Berro Properties in Long Beach, winner of the Cornerstone Award; and Daniel K. Walker, chairman of the board and CEO of Farmers & Merchants Bank. (Photograph courtesy of Farmers & Merchants Bank)
