Orders can be picked up from the PCB locations starting July 9th. Starting July 12th, PCB will also be selling extra shirts and Take-A-Stand items. Finally, the community is encouraged to wear their t-shirts on Friday, July 16th.
PCCAN would like to thank Phelps County Bank and the community for the ongoing support that has resulted in providing a variety of services to local families and kids throughout the years.
