Clear Mountain Bank’s Oakland branch office has been named a 2019 local favorite in the bank/credit union category of the 2019 Deep Creek Times People’s Choice Challenge as a platinum winner!

The People’s Choice Challenge is a “competition,” in its second year, designed to celebrate and recognize the Deep Creek Lake area favorites that make our community special and memorable. Each nomination was made and voted on by community members.

“This second annual People’s Choice Challenge was another step forward to celebrate all that is great about Deep Creek Lake and the Garrett County area. Deep Creek Times is committed to celebrating this wonderful area, it’s people and institutions and the community responded, as indicated by the large number of nominations and votes received.” stated co-owner Sarah Myers.

The 2019 People’s Choice Challenge had 40 individual nominating categories in four major groupings: experiences, services, products, and professionals, with wide-ranging categories. According to co-owner Mike Tumbarello, “We were really impressed with the pride and passion of the 1,000-plus nominees along with our readers, citizens, and visitors that together cast over 15,000 votes during the voting window.”

The Challenge culminated in a reception to honor the diamond and platinum winners on October 30th at the Garrett College GIEC small business incubator.
