Thanksgiving is only a week away and we are all looking forward to spending some time with our families. We hope that you are taking some time off from your busy lives to visit with your loved ones and eat lots and lots of food!
Family traditions are a big part of the holidays, Thanksgiving especially. Many of us here at First Liberty Bank have our own traditions: football, turkey, the Macy’s parade. Leah Loraditch remembers her childhood with a huge extended family who always made lamb along with turkey and the best baklava you’ve ever had. It was dripping with honey, perfectly crisp and cut into precise, two-bite triangles.
Gary Warren, our Credit Analyst, remembers bringing the relish tray, an assortment of pickles and olives, to Thanksgiving dinner as a youngster. The youngest in his family still holds that honor.
Donna Stein, our Lead Account Rep, has a Christmas movie marathon with her family every year after dinner.
Kathy Bentley, our Business Development Specialist remembers going bowling every year after dinner with her six brothers.
Phyllis Cobb, a Portfolio Manager here at First Liberty Bank, remembers her aunt’s husband made a pepper salad every year at her request. She would make a pumpkin roll in return for the salad. Uncle Tony was from a big Italian family in Pennsylvania and Phyllis still makes his pepper salad for her daughters.

From our family to yours, have a happy and delicious Thanksgiving! We will be closed the 27th and we will see you on the 28th.
