Waverly bank continues in family, Grahams buy lodge

By Lynda Jensen

The family-owned Citizens State Bank of Waverly is solely owned by Kim and Birdie Jackson, with the sale of 50 percent interest of the bank from Dan and Maureen Graham to the Jacksons.

The bank has been owned by the Graham family since 1951, when Dan purchased it from David Toussaint.

The bank continues more than a half century of family ownership through Birdie Jackson, who is the daughter of the Grahams.

The bank will continue as a community oriented bank, Birdie Jackson commented.

Grahams buy lodge

In turn, Dan and Maureen purchased Red Indian Lodge, located at Lake of the Woods, Sioux Narrows, Ontario.

"I was ready for a change. I've always loved the outdoors and fishing and when the opportunity to purchase the lodge came up, I couldn't resist," Graham said.

The lodge rests atop 15 acres situated along Whitefish Bay at Lake of the Woods, which is a fishing paradise, Dan said.

The resort, which is open for reservations, offers beaches, horseshoe pits, mini-golf, canoes, paddleboats, and a nine-hole golf course.

The lodge is managed by Ron and Lou Kabel who have worked there for more than 30 years.

It can accommodate 80 guests in 16 cabins ranging from one to five bedrooms.
