Again this year Firstbank is a proud sponsor and supporter of the Ionia Free Fair! Firstbank took home top honors for best Commercial Float in the parade. Pictured below; Firstbank’s Fortune Freddy rode in this fantastic 1928 Ford Roadster, which employee Nell Altobelli rebuilt with her husband and 3 children. Our Firstbank float, pulled by Dan Mitchell, showcased the 2013 Ionia Public Schools Senior Scholars! Firstbank is a dedicated and commited member of the community and we appreciate the opportunity to serve the Ionia area.
The 2013 Isabella County Youth and Farm Fair took place July 21st-27th. Each year the fair draws hundreds to participate in the various events, from the tractor pulls, demolition derby to the carnival rides and games and of course the 4H animal barns. Firstbank is a proud supporter of the fair and this year was no exception. Pictured here are branch manager Tracey Sallee and Customer Service Representative Katie Schehr as they attended the small animal auction and purchased 4 animals. Their purchases included 2 rabbits, a chicken and a Grand Champion dairy goat. The money that is given for these animals goes directly to 4H and those young people who’ve raised and cared for these animals. Organizations such as 4H helps to teach not only the importance of caring for animals but also the value of earning and saving money for the future. Firstbank is proud to support those efforts and applauds all those involved in the 4H organization.
July 19, 20, 21 2013 marked the dates for the annual Remus Heritage Days celebration. The event featured crafters, quilters, a softball tournament, car show, truck pulls and even a kid’s pedal pull competition. And of course, a parade and a firework display!
Again this year, our Firstbank Remus office is a proud supporter of the festival. Whether it’s taking part in the parade, or providing popcorn and refreshments we love being part of this great community.
