People's National Bank opened a new branch in our town. This month they hosted customer appreciation days. Ryan and I each signed up one time to win the prizes.

Friday was a day of mixed emotions. We woke up to the sound of water falling in our hallway. Ryan had been working on the roof to remove the chimney because it had been leaking. It was covered with a tarp waiting for the roofer to come on Friday morning. The rain somehow go up under the tarp and made a puddle in the attic. It then proceeded to leak in the hallway. We had to get a tote to let the water fall into. It was a mess. The roofer came and now the roof is fixed. The house is mostly cleaned up now. We are waiting to let the attic dry out completely and then we are going to check for damage. Hopefully there will be none and we can just paint the hall where there are a few water stains.

Friday afternoon I got a call from People's National Bank. I was told I won the gas grill and asked if they could say my name on the radio. He told me I would need to bring a truck to pick up the grill because it was big. I borrowed my parents truck to pick it up. I did not think about how I was going to load the grill. Thankfully two of the women who work at the bank and one customer who was a man helped me load and secure the grill. (Thank you so much.) I did not expect to have anything else with the grill, but it was filled with every goody imaginable. I get everything I could need to grill out (except the meat). You can look at the picture and see all the things that were included. There was even a cooler on wheels, a cutting board, and a digital meat thermometer.

Thank you so much PEOPLE'S NATIONAL BANK.
