Heart Month observed

M C Bank tellers participated in February Heart Month. From left, Joyce Harrelson, Tammy Johnson, Cindy Lacy, Maria Sheehan and Edna Landry are just a few of the tellers at M C Bank who took on the challenge to sell paper hearts and “Red Dress Pins,” the signature symbol for the American Heart Association’s “Go Red For Women” program.
