CB Sponsors RiverSong Music Festival

RiverSong Music Festival is putting Hutchinson, MN on the map. With people traveling from all over to listen to world renowned performers and living legends, RiverSong is gaining notoriety and growing with each annual festival. Situated along Hutchinson’s scenic Crow River and Luce Line trails, the RiverSong Music Festival features two stages; River View Stage and Front Porch Stage, a children’s tent, and NEW this year: A Jam Session Tent!

The draw of RiverSong is its eclectic mix of music including: soul, pop, country, jazz, bluegrass, Americana, blues, folk, and everything in between. Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band was rocking the park last year, so he’s back by popular demand. Peter Yarrow of “Peter, Paul, and Mary” is taking the stage as this year’s Living Legend performer. The Academy Award winning Okee Dokee Brothers are now a household name, exciting children everywhere. Wait until you see the entire line-up of performers scheduled!

Children 14 and under get in free to RiverSong Music Festival with a paid adult, and camping/tenting sites are available (but going fast). To see the entire performer line-up, reserve your campsite, and buy your tickets now, visit RiverSong’s website.

We, at Citizen’s Bank and Trust, want to be the first to welcome you to Hutchinson, Minnesota and hope your visit here is memorable.

We have a celebrity in the bank!

Maddie Girard, 9th grader at HHS, spent some time with us this morning learning the ins and outs of banking.  She is currently enrolled in the Intro to Careers class with Mrs. Padrnos.  She was interested in learning about banking and finance and had an interest in Citizens Bank as her dad, Mark Girard, serves as one of our Directors.  Maddie is actively involved in Student Council, a member of the Varsity golf team, and Business Professionals of America.

Check out this autographed photo of Maddie in today’s Hutch Leader.

The Best and Worst of Facebook for Business

Jessi Wendland, Nancy Witte and Mandy Baldry attended April’s Social Media Breakfast. Beth Gasser, from Vivid Image, was the presenter and spoke about the best and worst of Facebook for business. She started out with her top ten Facebook marketing mistakes. Some mistakes included not using Facebook personally, using a personal profile as a business page and not having a Facebook icon or link on your website for your customers to find your page. The last half of the presentation focused on Facebook features that every fan page administrator should know. She showed us how you can click on the “reply” button directly following a comment, co-host events and how to let Facebook recommend your page.

 This month’s presentation was very informative for CB&T’s Facebook administrators. Have you “liked” CB&T’s Facebook page? Go to our home page and click on the “Connect With Us on Facebook” and it will bring you to our FB page.
