During the month of April, each Carolina Farm Credit Branch hosted a Customer Appreciation Event where attendees were eligible to enter a drawing for a 2018 Bobcat 3400 UTV valued at $15,000.

L-R: Paige Strader, Jerry Strader (with two grandchildren), Wanda Harris, Loan Officer, Carolina Farm Credit, James Taylor, Farm Credit Express Manager, Carolina Farm Credit.

The winners of each branch drawing were then entered into an association-wide drawing that took place on May 7th via Facebook Live. The Bobcat was purchased and delivered by Piedmont Bobcat of Kernersville.

The 2018 Customer Appreciation Events marked the third year that patronage was returned in the form of an all cash dividend.  Patronage refunds were declared for the 30th consecutive year and over $21.5 million was distributed to members.

“Carolina Farm Credit had another successful year in 2017.  We’re pleased to be able to share our success with our borrowers by putting our profits in their pockets,” said Rex Bell, Chairman of the Carolina Farm Credit Board of Directors.

A special congratulations to this year’s winner, Jerry Strader from Reidsville, NC!
