Glen Burnie Carnival’s Special Day Volunteering
An annual tradition for The Bank of Glen Burnie, employees volunteered an afternoon at Glen Burnie Carnival’s Special Day on Monday, August 3rd. Organized by the Glen Burnie Improvement Association (GBIA), on this day, the Glen Burnie Carnival is dedicated to those in the community with special needs and disabilities. For almost 15 years, GBIA has opened the carnival for those children, adults, and their families with several local organizations and community members showing their support.
Again this year, The Bank of Glen Burnie employees welcomed guests to the carnival by volunteering at soft drink and hot dog stands. We would like to thank those employees who participated, including COO Ed Connelly, SVP Joyce Ohmer, VP Roxanne Stroud, AVP Joanne Walter, and Branch Managers Linda Loane, Linden Monaghan, Amanda Anderson, and Pranav Pancholi.
