Relay Team Targets Donations

Citizens National Bank's Relay for Life team has come up with a unique way to get donations. It's basically through extortion.....but it's all in fun.

Team members Wednesday placed a pink toilet in the yard of bank CEO Archie McDonnell.

It's the start of the team's "Plunge Away Cancer" theme. In exchange for a donation to the American Cancer Society, the team will take the toilet away.

"It is April Fool's, April the first. So we're doing this all month long," Virgie Palmer, Bonita Lakes branch manager. "And I know there are those out there that are always playing tricks on their friends, and maybe not friends, that they would call friends. So it's a great opportunity to have just a really good time."

Citizens National is dedicating its efforts to the memory of John McDonald who started the bank's first relay team.

If you'd like to be part of helping Citizens National Bank raise money for Relay for Life, call 601-484-55-10 or 601-484-53-42.
