Friday, June 1, 1st Bank hosted a barbecue for the community at their Morgan City location. The event brought in a crowd of over 300 people. Kent Francis served up hamburgers and hot dogs and guests had an array of chips, cookies and drink to choose from on the table beside him. 1st bank has 10J branches, and anyone who brought in a friend to open a new checking account received a free gift. They were also entered into a drawing for a Kindle Fire or an Apple iPad. There were 10 given out in all, one at each branch. 1st Bank would like to thank the community for coming out and sharing their day. The bank’s next event will be a car wash on July 13. It is a big event each year and proceeds go to their Relay For Life team which raises money for the American Cancer Society. They would like to invite everyone out to come and support them in the fight against cancer.
