An interesting recitation of events, regarding the 50th anniversary of the First National Bank. And sons of the original founders of the institution were still "keeping it in the family," so to speak. In that more personal era, such news would surely reassure patrons and the other officers of the bank alike, that here was a solid institution, continually striving to help maintain the economic wellbeing of the town. It wasn't going anywhere and one could always rely upon it. Today, with all the bank mergers that have led to nationwide chain banks, having such a lineage linking to the past is a near impossibility.
