Patrons at the various branches of the Lake-Osceola State Bank enjoyed a Christmas open house on Friday. Cookies and refreshments were served and people received 2019 calendars.

"This is the 40th anniversary of the bank's Christmas open house," said Lori Braginton, LOSB employee. "The employees made the Christmas cookies, as well as Deborah Smith-Olson, chairman. The snowy weather is not hurting the turnout."
