Message from the CEO
Dear Valued Client:
Celebrating a day of “Thanksgiving” stems back to the celebration by the Pilgrims in 1621 when, after less than 50% of them survived the terribly cold winter of 1620 and a very slim harvest to follow. But, the following year brought them good fortune and, along with 91 Indians who had helped them survive the previous year they celebrated it with a feast.
Abraham Lincoln, in 1863, proclaimed the last Thursday in November as a national day of Thanksgiving. Every President thereafter proclaimed the day of celebration and in 1941 “Thanksgiving” was sanctioned by the Congress as a legal holiday on the fourth Thursday of November.
During this special time of year and in light of the “spirit of the holiday” I want to give my thanks to all of you who have allowed us to serve you throughout the years. All of us at M C Bank are very thankful that, with the many choices available, you have allowed us to serve as your financial headquarters for products and services.
Our entire M C Bank family wishes you and yours a festive Thanksgiving Holiday!
Larry J. Callais
