First Bank Strikes Black Gold
On April 18, 2009, Belle Glade held its 31st annual Black Gold Jubilee at the city's Marina and Campground. The event is an end of harvest celebration filled with various activities and entertainment. First Bank was well represented at this years Jubilee as those who attended the morning parade were treated with handfuls of candy being thrown from First Bank's new courier vehicle (a.k.a. "The Bankmobile"). After the parade it was full steam ahead at the marina, where bank employees handed out a plethora of First Bank paraphernalia, including t-shirts, balloons, can coolies, zipper bags, and goodie bags from our Vendor Booth. When all was said and done, the Bank's participation in the Black Gold Jubilee successfully increased awareness in the area and supported this important community event.
