Conversion Weekend Information

The conversion of First National Bank of McHenry is scheduled for the weekend of July 19-July 21, 2019. This is the weekend "the change" will occur and First National Bank of McHenry will adopt the Blackhawk Bank identity, logo, signage, products, systems, etc. and we become one community-minded bank.


Account Changes

You may continue to use your existing supply of First National Bank checks until you have depleted your check stock. Should you feel the need to place an order for checks between now and Conversion Weekend, we encourage you to order as small a quantity as possible.
