08/22/19 — Everyone Loves a Parade

Fall is right around the corner and that means fair and festival season in Southern Illinois. Communities around the region will celebrate in their own unique way, but each has something in common: a parade. The saying goes "everybody loves a parade" and so does the team here at Peoples National Bank. Over September and October, Peoples National Bank will be on hand at 13 different parades throughout Southern Illinois. We'll salute the men and women that have and continue to serve our country starting with the Marion's Veterans on Parade and wrap up the season by scaring up a good time at the Centralia Halloween Parade. 

We sweeten things up at each parade the Peoples National Bank team participates in by handing out candy. This puts a smile on the faces of children of all ages along with team members from all of the Peoples National Bank branches. Some of these parades are part of Homecoming celebrations, so be on the lookout for a complimentary football in the home team's colors. Those balls will be given away to parade watchers as supplies last. High school football season is underway and what better way to celebrate your team with a ball in your school colors?

Don't be left out. Come out and get some candy on us and take home a football and join Peoples National Bank in kicking off another great fall season in Southern Illinois.
