Heartland Bankers enjoyed today's Licking County Groundhog Day Breakfast, held at Adena Hall on the Ohio State University's Newark campus. The Newark Granville Youth Symphony provided the entertainment for the approximately 700 guests in attendance.
Heartland Bank's Newark Branch Manager Tim Cox was the winner of the Early Bird prize by arriving first this morning at 5:18 a.m. His prize? Free Velvet Ice Cream for a year!
Presenting Sponsor Velvet Ice Cream provided treats for everyone in attendance.
Following her keynote speech, Donato's Pizza Chairman of the Board Jane Grote Abell presented everyone in attendance with free pizza.
Pizza and Ice Cream before 9:00 a.m. - sounds like a great start to the day!
Before final comments by the Licking County Chamber, Heartland Bank Director Jerry McClain won the prestigious John Alford Community Service Award. Congratulations Jerry!
