Michael C. Spragg, President and CEO of The Old Fort Banking Company and Chairman of the Paul M. and Lucy J. Gillmor Charitable Foundation is pleased to announce the result of Old Fort Bank's first annual fund raising effort. A rummage sale was held on July 21, 2012, at the Old Fort High School and resulted in $3,000 being raised for the benefit of the Gillmor Foundation. The check was presented to the Foundation by event organizers and Old Fort Bank associates Dee Blackburn (Head of Retail Banking) and Kristy Vaughn (Executive Assistant).
Throughout their lifetime, PM and Lucy Gillmor led and inspired the local communities with their philanthropy. Today, their legacy continues through the effort of the Foundation. The Paul M. and Lucy J. Gillmor Charitable Foundation works in partnership with local non-profit organizations, funding agencies, businesses, volunteers, and donors to invest in creative solutions that make a meaningful impact in people's lives.
Dianne Gillmor-Krumsee, daughter of PM and Lucy Gillmor, carries on the Gillmor family values and leadership as she serves as the Chairman of the Board of The Old Fort Banking Company as well as a trustee of the Foundation. "I truly appreciate the efforts of each and everyone who played a role in helping to expand the ability of the Paul M. and Lucy J. Gillmor Foundation to meet the needs of people in our local communities" stated Krumsee. Donated items for the sale were provided by The Old Fort Banking Company, its directors, employees and the local community. The Old Fort Banking Company associates also volunteered to assist with this fund raising effort throughout the event.
The Paul M. and Lucy J. Gillmor Foundation would like to express their gratitude for all who attended and to the Old Fort High School for their generosity. Community support of the sale will assist the Foundation in continuing to make meaningful contributions in the local area.Ol
