OVB to host vets lunch


Staff Report



GALLIPOLIS — November is a time to not only give thanks, but to also honor the veterans who sacrificed everything in order for us to enjoy the freedoms we have today. While Veterans Day was celebrated and observed Sunday and Monday, Ohio Valley Bank is continuing the celebration with a special event for veterans Nov. 14.

The Veterans Day event will take place at the Bossard Memorial Library in Gallipolis. Festivities will be located in the Riverside Meeting Room, with the opening ceremony set for 10:30 a.m. Lunch for veterans will then be served immediately following until 2 p.m. All veterans are encouraged to attend and share in the food and fellowship.

OVB also just launched special veterans Community First Debit Cards. The upgrade to one of these designs is available for $10 with proceeds going back to the bank’s Veterans Action Committee for outreach. Veterans will be able to obtain an upgrade to one of the new military designs for free, and OVB will still give $10 to the bank’s Veterans Action Committee on their behalf. The cards are just one of the many projects that the recently established Veterans Action Committee has worked to achieve.
