Water Carnival is certainly a favorite event for many in the community of Hutchinson. The annual event hosted by the Hutchinson Jaycees is a week jam-packed with entertainment, activities, performances, competitions, parades, and good food! Citizens Bank was proud to sponsor Katherine Ulrich as a Queen Candidate. We are also a major sponsor for the event, hosted every June. These pictures wrap-up the fun events from the week including: Coronation, Commodore’s Dinner, and the Queen’s Ball. The individuals include: Tom, Karleen, & Katherine Ulrich, Mike & Amber Cannon, Anthony Hanson, Jessica Wendland, and Renee Hantge.
Our very own Director, Jeff Haag, carefully glazed his hand-thrown pottery at Clay Coyote in Hutchinson. The pottery was made for a fundraising event for the Hutchinson Center for the Arts. The 2nd Annual Night of the Arts – a French Garden Party was hosted on Friday, June 1st. Jeff’s glazed pottery earned over $800 for the event.
Citizens Bank & Trust is the proud sponsor of Katherine Ulrich for Water Carnival Queen! One of her favorite memories of Hutchinson was when she was Junior Queen in 1999, where she traveled to other communities and enjoyed meeting new people. Her future goals include becoming a LPN and hopefully some day owning a hobby farm. We wish her the best of luck and can’t wait to support her in all the activities including the Miss Hutchinson Pageant and Grande Day Parade. If you would like more information on where you can help support Kat during the 70th Annual Hutchinson Jaycee Water Carnival, check out the Hutchinson Water Carnival website .
Good Luck Katherine, and best wishes for a fun-filled Water Carnival!
What an inviting way to greet guests to our community with refurbished signs on the corners of Hutchinson! Recently, the Hutchinson Ambassadors initiated a project to renovate the existing Hutchinson signs. The project included sandblasting, repairing the electrical wiring, replacing lights, and painting the signs to a new, bright blue. Thank you to those organizations who have been involved in the restoration project thus far: Hutchinson Rotary Club, American Legion, Temple Lodge, Odd Fellows, 3M, Burich Foundation, Hutchinson Foundation, Hutchinson Utilities Commission, City of Hutchinson, and Hutchinson Ambassadors. Signs are located on Hwy 7 West, Hwy 7 East, Old Hwy 22 S, and a new one to be placed on Hwy 15 N. There is still some work to do on the signs and your involvement is greatly appreciated!
