Ten Years in Delta County

In recognition of the 10th Anniversary of Alpine Bank in Delta, the celebration continues. The bank and staff still have some monthly activities throughout the end of the year. Stay tuned for announcements of additional events and activities.

Come Nov. 11, our government proclaims an “official day” to honor all Veterans who have served our country. The service given our country by Vets, and their loving families, extends far beyond just one day. There is no limit to honoring Vets. That’s why Alpine Bank locations in Delta, Montrose and Telluride are participating in RED Shirt Fridays throughout the month of November.

Additionally, Alpine Bank would like to give you an American Flag lapel pin. Visit any Alpine Bank location from Denver to Durango. Wear it proudly every day. To all Veterans, to all vet families, to the descendants of all Veterans, thank you for caring, for giving, for being the best of our best.

About RED Fridays:
Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason Americans who support our troops used to be called the “silent majority.” We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing. Many Americans, like you, me and our friends, simply want to recognize the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday—and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that…every red-blooded American who support our men and women afar, will wear something red. By word of mouth, press, TV – Let’s make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers.

If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once “silent” majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.

The first thing a soldier say when asked “What can we do to make things better for you?” is, “We need your support and your prayers.” Let’s get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example and wear something red every Friday.
