Real estate program successful

Amy Buckley, Countryside Realty, Batesville, broker-owner, has announced the success of its 2012 stimulus package for buyers. By the end of December, the agents and their company completed over 21 real estate transactions that generated over $9,500 of Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce gift certificates being spent at local businesses.

After closing, the agents purchased the gift certificates from the chamber and gave them to their buyers to use at several local businesses for any home remodeling projects, appliances or dinners out.

Bank employees participate in ride

For the second time, Friendship State Bank employees formed a team to participate in the 25th annual Hope Ride in Hope.

The bank’s team consisted of seven athletes. Julie Mathias completed 75 miles. Chris Meyer, Casey Meyer and Karin Johnson finished the 50-mile ride. Jan Bedel, Katie Sparks and Gery Bosse all rode 25 miles.   

The proceeds collected from the Hope Ride support local charities in that area, such as the Hope Food Bank Endowment Fund, Dollars for Scholars, Hope Summer Playground, Relay for Life and Youth Outreach Programs. Event organizers have given away $350,000 from their proceeds to these charities.
