Where's Bobby Wednesday

Get out into the fresh air. Go for a walk. Kick a soccer ball. Tune up your bike (motorized or not) and go for a spin. And while you’re out, look for Bobby. Green Belt Bank & Trust is placing Bobby out in plain sight. If you find him, take him to the Green Belt Bank & Trust drive-through (find those addressed below) and receive a $50 bill.

Green Belt Bank & Trust, in an effort to support the people and businesses in its communities, is launching initiatives to encourage support of local businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“For a long time I’ve felt that the areas and communities that Green Belt Bank & Trust serves are stronger than others in one way,” said Chris Weaver, owner and chairman of the board of Green Belt Bank & Trust. “We are tough and we are together. Say what you will about us being stubborn or old fashioned, when the chips are down, we fine people of the greenbelt find ways to lift one another up and we don’t buckle. We may bend but we don’t break. That is one of the main reasons I’m proud to be a resident here and why my wife and I have built our family here.”

The bank has announced the following weekly promotions for local businesses until the end of April.

Buy yourself and a friend strong coffee to get the week going. Call your order in to the local coffee shop, pay for the purchase with a credit/debit card and put your name on it. Green Belt Bank & Trust will purchase coffee on Mondays at all following locations for a few lucky orders.
