At press time for the Jackson County Times workmen are busy putting the final touches on the new 3,000 sq. ft. full service bank which will hold its Grand Opening Celebration from 9:00 until 1:00 this Saturday. The bank is located at the new Westside Plaza near Wal-Mart Supercenter.
Prizes, drawings, gifts, refreshments, and entertainment will all be part of the celebration this Saturday. The official ribbon cutting will occur at 9:00 AM. The public is welcome.
In order to join the Tyndall Federal Credit Union all that it required for eligibility is living, worshipping, or working in Jackson County. Branch hours will be from 8:30 AM until 5:00 PM, and drive through services on Saturdays from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM.
In our discussion with Mrs. Patsy Parker, of Blountstown, who is the Branch Manager, we learned that the building construction only took ninety days, once what seemed to be a lengthy permitting approval process. The bank has been operating in the strip mall near Firehouse Subs since 2001. With this expansion the bank has increased its employment level from six to twelve.
We welcome this new bank to our community.
