Your newspaper recently ran an excellent article informing the public of the year 2000 problem and how local banks are preparing for this event. At the time of publication, we did not disclose our specific progress. However, since the article appeared, several customers have requested this information.
Currently, SunTrust Bank, Augusta is 93 percent complete with the Year 2000 Project. I hope this information is helpful to those who do business with SunTrust Bank.
