Santa arrived early for several civic groups and schools as the American Exchange Bank kept up it’s practice of providing donations to help local students and residents.
This year the Dewar Education Foundation, the Little House (Girl Scouts), Henryetta Public Library, Henryetta Education Foundation and the Lion’s Club Christmas Basket were awarded the checks.
In the photos, AEB president Terri Thompson presented the donations to the Dewar and Henryetta Education Foundations, Girl Scouts and Lions Club. Loan officer Ruth Tomlinson gave the check to JoAnn Hott from the public library. Receiving the donations were: Brent Jenson for the Lions Club, Billie Been and Genie Tramel for the Girl Scouts, James McCullough for the Henryetta Education Foundation and Norene Fry, Ken Durbin and Linda Sisemore for the Dewar Education Foundation.
