GS&L Ugly Sweater Contest 2017

On December 1, the employees of Gouverneur Savings & Loan wore their most favorite – and ugliest – Christmas sweaters or Christmas tie, all for the sake of their favorite charity.

For two weeks, the customers of GS&L voted for their favorite ugly Christmas sweater, and the charity of the employee with the most votes received a $125  donation!

 This year we had a tie in the GS&L Ugly Sweater for Charity Contest, but fortunately both contestants chose the same charity, so the local FRIENDS 4 POUND PAWS was the big winner of the $125 donation!!!

 Congratulations to Vicky Mott and Denise Given who tied for the highest votes at 14 each.  Tracy Stowell and Roxanne Todd tied for 2nd place at 12 votes each, and  Stacey Durand came in a close 3rd with 10 votes.

 Thanks to everyone who participated.   It was great to see the creativity and as usual, the generosity and enthusiasm of the bank’s employees is second to none!!

Beware of Gas Pump Card Skimmers

Gas Station Internal Card Skimmer

Gas Pump Card skimmers are often hard to detect because as you can see, they are inside the enclosure. There have been reports of these skimmers in operation in St. Lawrence and Jefferson counties in December 2017. You can protect yourself by still using your card, but pay inside versus at the pump. Happy Holidays !
