This year is a very exciting one for Four Oaks Bank — 2012 is the year of its Centennial.
The bank is celebrating the milestone throughout the year with various events. Part of the bank’s celebration is a traveling historical exhibit which will be on display in each of the bank’s locations during the year.
The exhibit will be on display in the bank’s Rockingham office located at 1401 Fayetteville Road from Sept. 24 through Oct. 12.
The exhibit includes many artifacts from the bank, including the original deposit ledger begun on June 1, 1912, and the original bank seal used on the first stock certificates issued by the bank. It also features an early coin dispenser and many other items of interest.
Also on display will be reproductions of many important documents, including the original application for incorporation, the Certificate Of Incorporation from the Secretary Of State’s Office, and one of the first stock certificates, which was issued to the bank’s original Cashier.
“We hope that our customers and neighbors will enjoy this display of items from our origin a century ago,” said Ayden R. Lee Jr., president and CEO of Four Oaks Bank. “We are proud of our heritage and look forward to celebrating our first 100 years with our customers and our neighbors.”
