Six Mile plans ice cream social for bank

SIX MILE — To celebrate the upcoming opening of the town of Six Mile’s new Our Bank branch, bank officials are inviting residents to an ice cream social this Thursday from 4-7 p.m.

The social, scheduled to be held coinciding with the Six Mile Farmer’s Market’s final open day of the year, will be held at the former Six Mile Fire Department.

John Kreighbaum, president and chief executive officer of Carolina Premier Bank, announced last month that Our Bank would be located in the building that formerly housed First Citizens. Six Mile has been without a bank since First Citizens closed its branch in town in April.
