Bankie, you’ve gotten up early every day for over 30 years and have accomplished many great successes through your hard work, dedication and positive attitude. These are only few of the many things you have shared with us every day. However, soon you will be starting a new life, and having new adventures, ones that are a bit more relaxed and carefree, take time for yourself and enjoy your retirement!
