Camden, Tenn. – Apex Bank’s 11th annual Fourth of July Fish Fry event was another huge success. Despite the high temperatures and humidity, people turned out in large numbers and the celebration continued.
“Our team took extra precautions because of the weather this year, and it paid off,” said Marcus Vine, Apex Community Banking President. “We had a safe, successful, and fun-filled event for our friends and neighbors again this year.”
The Apex Bank Team prepared over 500 pounds of catfish and entertainment was provided by the Gospel Aires. A special tribute to World War II, Remembering World War II, was presented at the event.
Special guests also included: Camden Central High School coaches and players, Donna Vick with Second Harvest Food Bank, American Legion Post 102, and Callie Brasher, a recipient of Apex Bank’s Pay 4 Grades program.
This year Apex Bank raised awareness for the Sonny Melton Scholarship Fund. Over $600 in voluntary donations were given towards the scholarship for students pursuing a career in nursing.
