Mariachi music, a fun game of soccer, battling three piñatas, and a Folkloric dancing group filled Skyline Baptist Church as Branson Bank hosted their first Cinco de Mayo event. Around 200 individuals from the community joined the bank as they celebrated the Mexican holiday, providing dinner to everyone in attendance. 

According to Branson Schools, it is reported that in 2000, of the 2,923 total students, 106 were Hispanic, representing 3.6% of the student body. Comparatively, in 2014 of the 4,597 total students, 574 were Hispanic, representing 12.4% of the student body.

“The numbers show there is a growing need to reach out to the increasing Hispanic population in our community,” said Bill Jones, President of Branson Bank. “In April of 2014, we expanded our banking services by hiring Maria Valenzuela, a Personal Banker, to chair our Hispanic Program at the bank offering full service banking to Spanish speaking individuals in our community.”

Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1891-1897).

Branson Bank recently sponsored the Community Resource Fair where over 280 community members came together to receive free health screenings, spoke to local law enforcement, and provided state-of-the-art banking material for those individuals wishing to join the Branson Bank family.  This bank is one of the few in Taney County that is locally-owned and operated, meaning the money stays local. When money is deposited in any of their three convenient locations, they are then able to fund projects in the area to help economic development.
