THE 24TH ANNUAL LADIES FIRST LUNCHEON
This year’s Ladies First Luncheon was a huge success. Our goal was to highlight business women in the
community. With the idea of having a jewelry fashion show, we contacted local jewelry designers. The final three
who participated were Lori Brenneman of TFC, Barbara Lange of Two B’s Studio and Janet Crane of Florida
Faience Gallery, three dynamic ladies from different backgrounds, each with a unique design philosophy. The
talented designers spoke about their backgrounds in jewelry design and presented their pieces as part of a runway
show. Some of our wonderful employees volunteered as models.
As a Community Bank, it is always rewarding to highlight success stories and share them with the wider
community of Lake County. With over 300 attendees, our outreach this year, was outstanding. Dating back to
1995, the Ladies First Luncheon has it’s origins at Mount Dora Yacht Club with an attendance of 42 ladies. Over
the years, it has grown exponentially to become the gala event it is today. The First National Bank prides itself in
giving back to the Community and supporting many charitable entities, so we were delighted to learn that Janet
Crane of Florida Faience Gallery donated 10% of her sales from the event, amounting to over $200.00, to Lake
Cares Food Pantry, a cause close to our hearts. Thank you, Janet.
We thank our clients for attending, and for those wishing to learn more about our designers, or the Ladies First
Luncheon in general, please contact us at (352) 383-2140.
See you next year, Ladies.
Peeps: Which came first: the chicken or the egg? Looks like it was the chicken — the yellow, sugar dusted chicken. The marshmallow and crystallized sugar treats got their start in the 1920s, developed through the 1950s by Russian immigrant Sam Born. Originally, each Peep was hand created, and the entire process took nearly 30 hours per Peep. While Peeps now exist for almost every holiday, the original yellow chicken remains the top seller.
Cadbury Crème Eggs: Crème Eggs are a best Easter seller in the U.S. and U.K., and have been since 1923. Known for the Cadbury bunny and other fun ads, the
chocolate purveyor only sells the eggs between New Year’s Day and Easter.
Fun Fact: In 2007, the American versions of the Cadbury’s Egg were reduced from the standard size of 39 grams and 180 calories to a 34-gram, 150-calorie treat.
The United Kingdom still sells the sweets at their original size.
Bunny Suits: When Spring has sprung, and you likely have a day or two off of work or school, you’ll start seeing these costumes everywhere. Easter Bunnies
routinely pose for photos in shopping malls, and you may see them at children’s community Easter egg hunts.
Flowers: It’s the beginning of spring, and many of the world’s most beloved flowers are only available this time of year. What would Easter (and, indeed, spring) be
without dogwoods, lilies, and tulips? One word: autumn.
Baby Animals: Cute baby animals, such as rabbits, chickens, and ducklings, are often given to children as gifts for Easter. If you’re a parent, make sure that you
have the wherewithal to take care of an adult rabbit, chicken, or duck — or maybe just opt for a baby animal petting zoo trip instead.
Eggs: There’s no better time of year to sell eggs. Easter egg dyeing, Easter egg hunting, and egg-themed treats abound during this season. And kids simply delight in
finding things like jellybeans, small chocolates, and coins hidden inside brightly colored plastic eggs. Originally a pagan symbol of fertility for the spring celebration, the Easter egg also functions as a Christian symbol for spiritual renewal and rebirth.
