Dear Heritage Club Members,


Happy New Year everyone! We hope 2015 will be a good year for all of us. When you are making your New Year's resolutions, be sure to add "participate in Guthrie County State Bank Heritage Club events" to the list! Hopefully, some of our quarterly social events will be of interest to you or maybe a cruise or motorcoach trip. We have a fun year planned out and we'll be working on even more interesting and fun events in 2016!

Take a peek at pictures from the New England Fall Foliage Trip and Niagara Falls in October 2014!

This 12-day motorcoach trip included city tours of Chicago, New York City and Boston, plus New England's spectacular fall foliage in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut. We were splashed by Niagara Falls and took in many memorable sights!

Door prize winners!

We had six lucky winners of door prizes at the November Harvest social including Dick Gibson, Karen Esslinger, Robert Williamson, John Cleveland, Eileen Goodrich and Gary Coleman. Congratulations!

The Money Bag Contains $200!   



There will be $200.00 in the money bag this quarter at our GCSB Heritage Club social event on February 12 at Panora Telco. Karen Eby was the lucky winner of the $350 money bag at the last social event.  


How does the money bag work? Each quarter at our social event, we draw names from the GCSB Heritage Club's full membership. However, you must be present at that social event to win!  


If no one wins the prize, another $50 is added to the bag each quarter for the first three quarters of the year. In the fourth quarter only, we draw from the members present at our social event. The minimum guaranteed prize each quarter is $200.
