The July 1st celebration at the Citizens Bank Main Branch in Lafayette will include outdoor musical entertainment, complimentary refreshments, face painting, magic and balloon animal activities for children, a replica of the original Citizens Bank for viewing, tended to by employees dressed in costumes from the era, display cases of memorabilia donated by past employees and customers and a special program on the front lawn paying tribute to the bank’s past, present and future. Mementos of the day’s event will also be given to all who attend.
The special program, which is to be held at 5 p.m., will be presented by past and present Citizens Bank presidents Pete Williston, Charlie Darnell and Joe Carter.
Prior to the Anniversary celebration, all Citizens Bank branches will be hosting a variety of contests and special tributes to the community they serve.
Beginning on Tuesday, June 2nd, the Macon County Chronicle will be publishing a fun puzzle created by Citizens Bank for readers to solve and submit answers to their local bank branch.
Each Tuesday (June 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd), up until the bank’s 100-year celebration event, a new puzzle will appear, and each Friday (June 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th), each bank branch will draw a winning entry.
Winners will receive $25 the first week of the promotion, $50 the second week, $75 the third week and $100 the fourth week.
Extending the excitement of Fridays at Citizens Bank, each branch will also offer refreshments to anyone who stops in for a visit.
Hoping to share this momentous celebration with the communities they serve, Citizens Bank employees invite everyone to take part in the festivities commemorating this historic milestone.
“We hope that everyone will come out and help us celebrate,” they echoed, “Without them, we wouldn’t be here!”
