United Bank Recognizes Local Photographers

United Bank extended a special thanks to local photographers for submitting pictures for the bank’s 2008 community calendar. The public was invited to participate in the calendar design by emailing their photos of local landscapes, historical architecture, nature and wildlife photographed within Pike, Spalding, Lamar, Upson, Morgan and Newton Counties. The contest began in July, and United Bank received over three hundred photographs. Thirteen photos were selected and are featured in the bank’s 2008 edition of their annual community calendar. The bank has received such favorable comments about the calendar that it hopes to make this an annual project. Calendars are a free publication courtesy of United Bank. Pick up a copy of the calendar at any of United Bank’s fifteen banking locations.

Calendar Photographers (l to r): Ellen Tew, Marcia Fisher, Johnnie Gaskill, Melissa Mathews, Lindsey York, Yvette Tolson, Dee DeLoatch, Melba Brown and Pricilla Bostwick. Other photographers selected but not pictured are Katy Kennedy, Deanna York, Trinity Walker and Alan Mars.
