Stop in to your local Independent Bank office on July 27 to celebrate the start of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. There will be special promotions, activities and refreshments in honor of the Olympics.

Each office will be celebrating in their own way by partnering with local businesses and organizations. There will be drawings, games and refreshments. As a special offer for customers, they can choose a $15 gift card if they refer a friend who opens a checking account or applies for a personal loan* on Friday, July 27.

Independent Bank has a strong focus on community outreach and special appreciation days like the Olympic celebration are a way to give back to the communities it serves and get involved. There will be a wide range of activities offered statewide. In Portland, the staff is getting in the spirit with their own Olympic competition. In Potterville, the team is featuring two businesses that focus on personal health for the day. The offices in Unionville and Caro will be showing off their local Little League teams. These are just a few of the many ways our offices are involving the community for the celebration.
