JUNEAU - First National Bank Alaska invites the public to stop the local branches' annual open house Friday, Dec. 12, during regular business hours for coffee, refreshments and the release of the 2009 gift calendar, "Landscapes and Lifestyles: Remembering Alaska's First 50 Years."
The 840 W. 10th St. branch, is open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., the Valley Branch, at 8990 Glacier Highway, is open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and the 238 Front St. branch is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This year's calendar celebrates the state's 50th anniversary by sharing a scrapbook of employees' memories of ways places around the state have evolved in the last half century. Accompanying 13 diverse memories, from the transition of the Seward waterfront after the 1964 earthquake to the changing subsistence lifestyle in Bethel, are vivid photos of those locations today.
First National has produced and published completely in Alaska an annual calendar as a gift to customers since 1978.
