She also has a beau who is courting her from afar, unbeknownst even to her sister, Cora, who, though younger, seems to have suitors to spare.

Savings bank to close Leland office
Security Savings Bank has announced it is taking steps to respond to the prolonged economic recession by closing its branch office at 202 Village Road in Leland at the end of December.
Bank officials said the decision to close this location was difficult, but decided it is necessary to improve operating efficiencies and the bank’s capital position.
Letters announcing the Leland branch closure have been mailed to the affected customers. All accounts currently maintained at this branch will be automatically transferred to the Boiling Spring Lakes branch office of Security Savings Bank, so no action is required by customers.
Customers affected by the branch closure may continue to call the Leland office until Dec. 28 with questions about their accounts or how the branch closure may affect them. After that date, customer assistance will be available at their new Security Savings Bank branch office in Boiling Spring Lakes or by calling (910) 845-2000.
The bank continues to implement measures to reduce expenses and to strategically position itself for future operations when the economy recovers. Subsequent to the branches closure, the bank will continue operating with six branch locations in Brunswick County. The bank’s board of directors, management and employees remain committed to making the best choices available to maintain the level of banking services provided to this community for more than 100 years, officials said.
