Once again, the Bank of the Southwest is sponsoring their annual "Dream Tree" program and are joining with the T or C Rotary Club to provide a bountiful offering of Christmas cheer for area youngsters.
Anyone interested is encouraged to stop by either branch office, select one or more tags representing less fortunate youngsters from the community, and purchase a special Christmas gift for the identified child.
All gifts must be returned (unwrapped or in gift bags) to either of the bank branches no later than noon on Friday, December 19.
For further information, call 894-7171.
