As Bradford National Bank celebrates its 150th anniversary, they are once again stepping forward as the Premier Level sponsor for the Bond County Bicentennial. In 2015, the bank was the platinum level sponsor for the Greenville Bicentennial. The signature sponsorship was announced by Bradford National Bank president & CEO Doug Stroud.

Stroud said, “Bradford National Bank is pleased to step forward and provide funding and support for the Bond County Bicentennial. As a community bank who has been serving the county for 150 years, we felt it was appropriate for us to support this upcoming historic event in Bond County.”

The Bond County Bicentennial will be held on Sunday, July 2, 2017 in downtown Greenville, in conjunction with the Independence Day celebration.

The bank presented their sponsorship check to Bicentennial chairman John Coleman, Bond County Board chairman Howard Elmore, and Bicentennial committee member Allan Davis. Coleman said, “Bradford National Bank is celebrating their 150th anniversary this year, making them the oldest bank in Bond County. We’re proud to have a long-time member of the community as a partner in the Bicentennial.”

Elmore said, “Bradford National Bank has a long history of supporting all of the communities that make up Bond County and we are excited to partner with them for our Bicentennial celebration.”

Founded in 1867, Bradford National Bank will host their own celebration this year as well. Stroud said, “We have many events and activities planned for our sesquicentennial year that will culminate with a big party at the main bank on Labor Day weekend.”
