Penny Profiler #57

If you'll recall a couple profilers ago, I intentionally skipped one as we were waiting on official clearance.  Today we received some great news and I can officially welcome Deanna Mantie to the penny profiles.

Banner Bank has agreed to lend us the start up funds necessary to set our ship in motion and join us down this exciting path.  Headquartered in Walla Walla, they have been in business for more than a century and pride themselves on strong customer relations and a high level of community involvement.  Our cup of gratitude is overflowing and cannot wait to make them proud of their decision.

Deanna will now be my bank liaison from here on out and I am sure we are going to have plenty of opportunities to get to know each other better.  At our last gathering I told her that I was leaving our meeting to see one of my old customers to pick up some pennies and explaining the backstory.  She immediately pulled one from her wallet adding  it to the collection.  The other penny profiles have a long term bond in common and while this is a new introduction, the gesture was sincere and heartfelt just like the others.
