VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS ON THE FARM
Dec. 5
The holidays are probably going to look a little different this year for all of us, but we still love hearing from all our friends and members during this special season. We had fun interacting with everyone during our Virtual Heemet Fescht that we decided to do it again for Christmas on the Farm. Join us 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 5, on Facebook LIVE. Be on the lookout for more updates including our line-up of musicians, speakers, presenters – and of course, the Belsnickel. We hope you can join us. www.facebook.com/pgchc

FREE AUTO BUYING WEBINAR
Dec. 9
For some people, buying a vehicle is a thrilling experience - finding the right one, haggling for the best price and driving away in a new ride. But for others, shopping for new wheels is unpleasant and stressful. As one of the top auto lenders* in Pennsylvania, we know a lot about the buying process. Because of this, we are presenting a free auto buying webinar at noon, Wednesday, Dec. 9. We'll cover tips for buying, differences between buying and leasing and other general financial considerations. Register via the provided link by 5 p.m., Monday, Dec. 7. This webinar is free and open to everyone. *Based on December 2019 Auto Lender Summary from Experian.
