Celebrate May Day with Guthrie County State Bank

Apr 30, 2020 | General News

Guthrie County State Bank invests in the community in a variety of ways. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our community’s small/medium businesses and nonprofits may be struggling. Beginning May 1, our “Celebrate May Day” promotion invites our customers to help out a neighbor for the chance to win one of 10 – $500 checks from GCSB to be donated to a local small business or nonprofit for COVID-19 expenses.


May Day as a term is defined as a communications signal with two meanings. One is used as a distress call in international radio telephone communications. The other is as a signal that spring is coming and it’s time to celebrate the rebirth of the outdoors. The team at Guthrie County State Bank thinks both of these meanings are valid during this time of uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s easy to enter. Between May 1 – 22, snap a picture of yourself or your family performing a good deed for someone else. Submit the photo on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #GCSBMayDay and let us know to what small business or nonprofit you would give the $500 if you win. You can enter multiple times, just make sure it’s a separate good deed and that you select a different nonprofit or business each time. See the full rules for more details on this flier. We’ll draw the winners on May 28. The contest is only open to GCSB customers.

We hope you’ll join in and help us give away $5,000 to our community. Contact any GCSB team member for more details and watch our website, Facebook and Instagram for updates.
