No flowers? No card? Our 1st Anniversary

Uh-oh. There’s trouble when you forget an anniversary — and your Stone Bank Blogger was so distracted by the clouds yesterday that a Touchstones’ anniversary went unmentioned.

On July 19, 2011, Touchstones purchased the Stone Bank from its owner of 50 years.

It’s been a whirlwind year and we’ve made a lot of progress. We couldn’t have made it without the support and thoughtful work of our architect, contractor and stone mason.

So let’s stop, draw breath and raise a  “Happy Anniversary” toast to the Stone Bank — now in its 112th year.

And remember, the first anniversary is the “paper” anniversary.  So, if you have some green paper (as in cash) you want to send our way. We won’t object.

After the first blush of love, our second year will be one in which we  build a stronger foundation under the Stone Bank.

If you can help, click the PayPal link in the right-hand column, or send a check to Touchstones, 524 Main St., Bottineau, ND 58318.

Confetti! Rice! Air kisses!  And thanks for reading the Stone Bank Blog.
