One of our staff, Betsy Norvell, uses just the right word when she describes the INB Pleasant Plains lobby this time of year: Overwhelming! She says, “The joy of giving is overwhelming and brings holiday cheer to all who enter and see all the presents that will be given to those in need.”
I might use the phrase, “Over the top” to describe the people of Pleasant Plains. The community has once again met the needs of the less fortunate this holiday season by filling all the wishes on the Angel Tree. Those of us who work here have had the joy of coming into work each day and seeing the pile of gifts grow. And each day we think, “Wow, here’s our community coming together again.” We’re lucky enough to have some of you stop and share your stories about shopping for the kids, and we see the joy on your faces. We see you give not only to the Angel Tree, but the Food Pantry, too. It’s times like these that we know we’re in the right place, doing the right thing.
We’d like to invite you to share a bit of the holidays with us by joining us for our Holiday Open House from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 21 at our Pleasant Plains Branch. To show our appreciation to our customers and community, we’ll be serving cookies, coffee and great conversation. Please stop by to see Cayla, Betsy, Tammy and me.
