As the saying goes, “Time flies when you are having fun.” Wow, I can’t believe that 2015 is more than half gone, and I am already working on the 2016 calendar. It has been an exciting year, and I would like to thank everyone for your support. Listed below are the final Ambassador Club events of the year as well as some of the highlights that are planned for 2016. We will also be displaying new event fliers at your local Heartland Bank branch with more information on these trips.
