First Citizens Bank opens new El Cajon branch

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

First Citizens Bank has opened a new 3,800-square-foot branch at 175 West Main St. in El Cajon. The full-service branch will offer a complete line of personal and business services. It features dedicated parking, a walk-up ATM and night depository, offices and a conference room. Hours of operation will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
