Over 300 join Slavie in celebrating 110th anniversary!
Celebrating 110 years of strength in the community, Slavie held an anniversary party at the Bel Air headquarters on Saturday, May 1, 2010 - Slavie's official founding date. Over 300 community members attended, with support from Harford Technical High School, the Bel Air High School Girls Basketball Team, Bubbles the "Savings Fun" Clown, 2010 Orioles player Nolan Reimold, the Orioles bird and WLIF 101.9 FM's Diane Lyn and Greg Carpenter.
Guests enjoyed a community style cookout and enjoyed music from WLIF 101.9, as well as games and giveaways, including a three-night stay at the Princess Royale Resort in Ocean City. Children worked on Mother's Day gifts at the craft station and enjoyed a lesson on savings, with a presentation by Bubbles the Clown, who specializes in mixing financial education into his magic show, as well as balloon making and face painting activities.
The Overlea branch also celebrated the milestone with a customer appreciation event on April 30 and May 1, 2010, where customers and visitors enjoyed refreshments and flower giveaways by Raimondi's.
