How do you like them apples?
From Issue: Volume XXI - Number 26
FOR 75 YEARS, Farmers & Merchants Bank has delivered delicious apples to the Long Beach Fire and Police Departments at Christmas time. Gus Walker started this tradition in 1938 and this year, his grandson Dan Walker, CEO and chairman of the board, did this for the 75th year in a row. Last Friday, Walker delivered about 2,000 apples to representatives from both departments, including Deputy Fire Chief Richard Brandt, left, and Police Chief Jim McDonnell, right. Santa made an appearance too.
