BB&T Opens New Bank


BB&T Senior Vice President Bryan Thomas and Crozet branch manager Cecelia Price snipped a ribbon that promised prosperity to open the bank’s new office in Crozet’s Blue Ridge Shopping Center Oct 5. They were joined by United Way Director Kathy Train (partially obscured), Chamber of Commerce director Tim Hurlburt, WAHS representative Tammie Hamilton, Chamber of Commerce director Joyce Robbins, WAHS principal Dave Francis and Crozet branch teller Joanne Muse.


In keeping with BB&T ribbon-cutting traditions, which include supporting local high schools, Price presented a $500 check to Western Albemarle High School principal Dave Francis.


Fletcher and Margie Freeman of Batesville posed with the $250,000 BB&T race car at the event.


Mark McGill of Mechum’s River snagged $21 worth of crumpled monopoly game bills swirling in the “cash machine” after his name was drawn to enter the inflatable booth. Herbert Perrin won $33 the same way. Perrin, a BB&T customer, said the bank “did well” to switch from their downtown Crozet location to the new spot near Harris Teeter
