Revelstoke RBC celebrated its 50th anniversary on Friday, July 26, with a cake cutting and several displays on the bank's local history.

Girl guides Shaunacy Alm (left) and Raylin Robinson cut the ceremonial cake for the 50th anniversary of the Revelstoke branch of RBC on Friday, July 26. The two girl guides are flanked by Todd Gladman, manager of financial planning; Thomas Vickers, commercial account manager; Lynne Welock, Revelstoke branch manager; Dale Freschi, regional vice president; and councillor Gary Starling. The branch compiled a great deal of historical information, including old articles, photos and advertisements. They also had a display on the 1967 fire that destroyed the building only four years after it had opened. Ruby Cameron was honoured as the branch’s longest serving client – she opened her account not long after it opened 50 years ago. “Ruby’s been with us for almost the full 50 years that we’ve been here,” said Welock. “Without you and many clients like you, the branch would not be celebrating like we are today.” Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review
