THE OKEECHOBEE COUNTY BANK, in the midst of a huge remodeling program

which embraces the tearing down of half the existing building, replacing it and

.. adding another 2,200 feet of floor space, is particularly grateful to its friends _

and patrons for the fine cooperation during this trying period. It is then, with

apologies, that we must ask for your continued tolerance until such time that the

remodeling work is complete.


WHEN COMPLETED the Okeechobee County Bank will offer banking facili-

ties favorably comparable to any in South Florida with efficiency, speed and com

fort to the patrons being stressed. All these things i do not just happen. They are
t.t*
brought about by you, the people who patronize the Okeechobee County Bank. :

.'_,, .. ..... : ""....,' .$ ". t ("1'11\1 >R' -_-

;. NOW at this time, during Dairy Month, we feel it proper that we pay tribute :

to those engaged in one of the area's most outstanding industry, the Dairy Farm-

ers. All year long you work hard to produce delicious, nourishing dairy foods. A

month has been set aside for recognition of your service and we say most

heartily:
t.
.

;,. "Congratulations, Dairy Farmers, on a job well done." '

WE WANT to take this opportunity to add our congratulations to The Okee-

chobee News which is rounding out its fiftieth year of service to the area. The

News has been our news and advertising media for half a century, has recorded

" .. the major events of the community, has worked for improvement and a better

way of life. We are fortunate to have such an institution and our wish is for their

.
continued success.


WE ARE PROUD of our community, are happy to be a part of it and our

.
promise to you is that we will earnestly strive to do our part to help make the .

Okeechobee area a bigger, better place in which to live.
