A Holiday Video Message from 1st Mariner Bank

by Erica Starr 20. December 2011

Happy Holidays from your 1st Mariner Bank family...

Every month we send out the 1st Mariner Bank eNewsletter that is aimed to keep you updated on 1st Mariner happenings. From information on our new and current products, to financial tips and advice from local experts, the 1st Mariner Exchange is just another way to keep you informed and equipped in your financial journey.

Not to mention, you get to help us avoid chopping down several trees in the process.

With the rush of the holiday season, the last thing we thought you’d have time to do is read another email. We thought, today, let’s 86 our traditional monthly eNewsletter and have a little fun for the holidays. (If you’d like to sign up for our eNewsletter, click here)

Over the past week, we went around and asked some of your favorite 1st Mariners a few questions about how they spend the holidays, their holiday likes and dislikes, and some fun holiday trivia. I mean, naming the reindeer is something everyone can do….right? Or not.

Wanna see how they did?

It’s a short, funny three-minute video holiday card that we hope you’ll enjoy as much as we do.

We’d like to sincerely thank you for affording us the privilege and opportunity to serve you.  Here’s to wishing you and your family a very happy and safe holiday season!
