Iowa State Bank celebrates 135 years

Posted August 21, 2014 at 2:16 pm

Downtown Hull was bustling last Wednesday evening as crowds of people attended Iowa State Bank’s 135-year anniversary celebration.

Most began the event by enjoying a free meal provided by the bank and approximately 1,000 people were served in the basement of the community building. The Sioux County Cattle Producers grilled hamburgers and the rest of the meal was provided by Dan’s Food Center.

Then it was down the street to the bank.

Kids hopped and bounced on the three inflatables and enjoyed making huge bubbles with a clown. Over 500 ice cream cones were served by The Purple Cow from Sanborn.

Adults toured the newly-remodeled Iowa State Bank, viewed lots of historic memorabilia and registered for prizes.

    When the project is completed the school will gain five classrooms located on the south side of the school. Those rooms will hold Pre-K, kindergarten, first, second and third grade
