Hancock County Savings Bank will be closed on Monday, January 20th in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The federal holiday is always held near King’s birthday, which is January 15th. The day pays tribute to Dr. King and has also been named a day of service. It is encouraged to be a “day on” instead of a “day off” as the day is intended to promote awareness and aid in creating solutions to social issues. It is hoped that individuals would take advantage of the day off by volunteering their time toward an organization or project that will better their community.
