  2. My goodness---that takes me back in memories to my first savings account at Genesee Bank. I was making $3.35 an hour, working 40 hours a week at age 16 during the summer, and a little cash was stashed into that bank with the passbook presented to the teller at the Franklin and Davison branch.
    Thanks for the great find!

  3. Citizen's Bank was my first bank and my bank was over on Clio Road near the A & W. (now long gone sadly!) My purse was stolen while I was at work and my passbook was in it. I was working at Arby's on Clio ROad. Luckily they did not get my hard earned money from a teller the next day.

    it was part of my moms way of teaching us how to save money, dont know if it worked or not, more then likely not, but wshe did teach us the meaning of hard work, my dad too!

  6. Citizen's was my 1st bank, there across from Shumakers. I was bussin' tables at the old pancake house(which was a lot better than working at Bill Knapp's up Miller).I think I was 13yr at that point in time. Jeremy, Your Parents did a Good Job teaching You, as You're still a Good Worker and Provider, and I'm Glad we are Blood now.
