T&C Bank Gives a Lot of TLC!
July 31, 2011 8:15 PM | Tagged as Coins for Kidzeum, Professor B.Z. Body, Town & Country Bank

Town & Country Bank (T&C) is full of people who not only know how to bank for their community, but also how to craft for their community! Three ladies in particular showed some special TLC (tender, loving, care) to and for Kidzeum's very own Professor B.Z. Body during the recent Coins for Kidzeum Campaign!
 
Jean Hild and Cheryl Womack, two Town & Country employees at the Dirksen branch, were talking about the Kidzeum mascot, Professor B.Z. Body, who was wearing champion gear to celebrate the Town & County Coins for Kidzeum Challenge. Both ladies wanted to bring life to Professor B.Z. Body to add attention to the Coin Champion displays. Together, the ladies came up with a yarn version of the Professor. Jean created the Professor's body and cap, while Cheryl created the T-shirt complete with matching Town & Country sprig logo!
 
 
 
And Professor B.Z. Body also made another appearance at Town & Country Bank's headquarters. Val Gilligan, a long-time bank teller and part-time craft enthusiast, showed off her sewing skills with a fully homemade Professor B.Z. Body costume! She unveiled her creative costume at the Coin Champion Celebration, where adoring Kidzeum fans were thrilled to see their mascot come to life! Val is also in the process of making another, more fortified Professor B.Z. Body to give to Kidzeum for future events and mascot appearances!
 
These three ladies, along with the other Town & Country Bank employees, showed the community that there is such a thing as having fun at work! Thanks gals!

Coins for Kidzeum
March 30, 2011 6:07 PM | Tagged as Change for Good, Coin Champions, Coins for Kidzeum, Kidzeum Champions, Town & Country Bank Coins Campaign

 

The Coins for Kidzeum Campaign sponsored by Town & Country is now at our halfway point!  We're excited to share that as of right we have more than 35+ individuals, 30+ groups, and 10+ classrooms participating as Coin Champions!

The Coins for Kidzeum Campaign runs from March 1 - May 18, but YOU can still get in on the fun and be a Coin Champion!  All you have to do is fill out and print the application found here, or visit a Town & Country Bank location to complete your form and submit it for your Coin Collection Kit including a Change Bank, posters, and more goodies!  Then, collect, collect, collect!  Gather spare change from under the car seat, in the sofa cushions, your family's cookie jar...you get the idea!

The top Coin Champions in each of the three categories (Individuals, Groups, and Classrooms) will compete to win prizes which will be given at the top-secret Coin Champion Celebration at the end of May.  So it's a WIN-WIN-WIN for all, and everyone's a Champion!  Collect to make a BIG Change for Good in our community!  Collect to build Kidzeum!

Sidenotes:

  • You can deposit your change at any Town & Country Bank location in Springfield (during business hours) as many times as you would like
  • Classrooms MUST provide a roster of all students who will participate in the campaign
  • All change collected must be collected in good faith to benefit the Kidzeum of Health and Science
