In 1976, for the bank's 50th anniversary, Chris and others in 1926 period costume, had a ribbon cutting ceremony for the branch opening on the corner of Main Highway and McFarlane, which stood there for so many years until Coldwell Banker took it over a couple of years ago.

Glad you posted this accolade to Chris. As one of her clients for many many years I was happy for her to be able to retire, and sad for me to lose such a great account manager!
