POINT PLEASANT — Farmers Bank recognized that with the change of seasons, more people are considering remodeling, upgrading or working on their home. That’s why they offered the “Home Improvement Seminar” on Thursday, March 21, at the Point Pleasant River Museum from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. as a part of their “Banking on U” series.
“Banking on U” consists of eight seminars with different topics on personal finances. Mike Lieving, Farmers Bank executive vice president, West Virginia Division president, and chief lending officer, led the discussion for the second seminar of the series and set the stage for the other presenters.
The other presenters included John Harrison, with S&H Builders, who spoke about how to choose a contractor and the best way to work with them; Cheryl Lemley, real estate appraiser, who discussed the different things she looks for when appraising a home and the value of different home improvements; and Dennis Brumfield, certified public accountant, who talked about tax benefits in upgrading or improving your home.
Each “Banking on U” seminar provides light refreshments, giveaways and great prizes — and is offered to the public at no cost. At the end of the year, all attendees who complete a survey will be entered into a drawing to win $1,000 cash.
The next seminar, “Home Buying 101”, will be held at the Gallipolis Ariel Ann Dater-Hall Theatre on May 9, 2013, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. RSVP at facebook.com/myfarmersbank, call your local branch, or just stop by. You can also go to Farmers Bank’s Facebook page and vote on which seminar you want them to offer next.
