    Farmers National Bank 115th Anniversary Float



    The Farmers National Bank 115th Anniversary float was well-represented at the Christmas parades in Prophetstown, Morrison and Geneseo. On November 25th, several employees and some of their families represented the bank in the Prophetstown parade. Those attending had a good time throwing candy to the many children waiting anxiously. In addition to the presence in the parade, the Prophetstown Office hosts a hospitality booth during their holiday celebration. We hand out hot chocolate and cookies that are baked and donated by FNB employees then the Bank in turn makes a monetary donation to the FNB Investing in a Cure Relay for Life team for the cookies. In 2017, 42 dozen (that’s 504) cookies were served to parade goers along with 325 cups of hot chocolate!
