Time Capsule Opened For Bank's 125th Birthday

ARDMORE, OK -- A local business celebrated a big birthday Friday.

The First National Bank in Ardmore celebrated it's 125th birthday with an all-day celebration.

The bank has nearly been around as long as the city, which celebrated it's 127th birthday just a few weeks ago.

The festivities included the opening of a 25-year old time capsule which contained notes, letters, photographs, and small momentos from former employees and some current employees.

"You know it's a special day for First National," said president and CEO of the bank, Curtis Davidson. "But it's just a great day for this whole community and kind of tells you or shows you what a community can become."

A couple of dozen Ardmoreites attended the anniversary party including senator Frank Simpson, representative Pat Ownby and mayor Martin Dyer.
