LYONS — It seemed funny to Joan Delaro that the Lyons Chamber of Commerce represents the Lyons business community but that it didn’t hand out a business of the year award at its biggest event.

It does now. Lyons National Bank, whose Lyons beginnings date back over 165 years ago, is the chamber’s first Business of the Year.

LNB will be honored at the Lyons Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year dinner on Monday, April 8 at Maître d’ at Trombinos, 12 Pearl St.

This year’s Citizen of the Year is Mark DeCracker, who is involved in a number of causes in Lyons and Wayne County, including Mural Mania.

As for LNB, “They’ve been a staple in the community forever,” said Delaro, whose Main Street organization has combined forces with the chamber to promote the Lyons business community. “They support Lyons and our community activities.”

Indeed, LNB said in response to the chamber honor that it has been a “proud supporter of many Lyons-based events and projects,” including the annual holiday Business After Hours event, Peppermint Days, Lyons Main Street Program events, the Community Center capital campaign and the Lyons Heritage Society.

LNB President Tom Kime said Lyons will always be special to the financial institution.

“Our hometown-style of banking can be traced back to our roots in Lyons, N.Y.,” Kime said. “Lyons branch manager Julie Downey and many other LNB staff have strong ties to the area, and as an organization we’re committed to supporting Lyons and all the communities we serve. Our personal service and local support is what differentiates us from other banks.”


LNB said its staff is “dedicated to providing the best possible service to their customers.”

Now based in Geneva, LNB has 15 branch offices across seven counties, including Wayne and Ontario.

Those interested in attending the dinner can contact the Lyons Main Street Program at (315) 871-4220 or by email at Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at Dobbins Drug Store, 52 William St., or Lyons Main Street Program, 70 William St.
