OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2010

SPELLING BEE

Many Bank employees participated in spelling bees when they were in school. Three Bank employees took part in one held back on Tuesday, October 5. This spelling bee was the 10th Annual Spelling Bee held by the Adams County Literacy Council. All proceeds from this event go toward the Kay Scriptunas Memorial Scholarship Fund. The Adams County Literacy Council awards a scholarship each year at the Spelling Bee to a student who is pursuing some type of higher education. The Bank’s team competed against five other teams in the bee. The team was the second team to be knocked out of the bee, with the word acedia. Certainly not a common word, acedia is defined by Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, as apathy or boredom. Many thanks to the enthusiastic cheering section—the team couldn’t have done it without you! 

 

FARMERS FAIR

Saturday, October 16, marked the 95th Farmers Fair in Dillsburg. For several years now, the Bank has participated in Farmers Fair with a booth. At the Bank’s booth, attendees could spin a prize wheel for prizes that included Bank logo items. They could also register to win a $50 Ashcombe gift card. Helium balloons were handed out to children who stopped by the booth. Much fun was had by all.

 

 

HALLOWEEN PARADES

As the days get shorter in October, the time draws near for Halloween parades in the local area. For at least three years now, the Bank has participated in both the Gettysburg and Hanover Halloween Parades. Both of the parades take place during the last full week of October, so the Bank uses the same theme and float in each one. This year, the theme was “Listen to your mummy. Go to ACNB Bank.” There was a teller line staffed with two tellers on the float, and the tellers had mummies for customers. In addition, participants who rode in the truck or walked with the float dressed as mummies. The walkers in each parade handed out candy to children along the parade route. All in all everyone enjoyed participating—the parades are a unique and fun way to represent the Bank!

 

BUSINESS EXPO

The Gettysburg Adams Chamber held their annual Business Expo on Thursday, November 4, at the 1863 Restaurant in the Holiday Inn® of Gettysburg. The theme of the show was “Adams County EXPOsed”. With this theme, participating business and organizations were encouraged to feature their finest products and services in their displays, and they were also permitted to sell their products, which typically isn’t done at a trades show like this. The staff enjoyed mingling with others who participated in the show.

  

ADAMS COUNTY TOWNSHIP OFFICIALS CONFERENCE

For the third year in a row, ACNB Bank was represented at the Adams County Association of Township Officials Annual Conference. The event was held on Wednesday, November 10, at the SAVES Fire Company outside of McSherrystown. Bank staff members had an opportunity to speak with representatives from municipalities in Adams County prior to the dinner. Along with the dinner, a number of door prizes---donated by vendors---were awarded to attendees.
