On Monday, October 8, at 10:00 am, First Federal Bank of Louisiana had a Grand Opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at the new branch building opening in Vinton. First Federal moved into the building on Center St that formerly housed Iberia Bank. The Vinton High School Band played before the ceremony. The Boy Scouts of America led the Pledge of Allegiance. And even Gumbeaux Gator was on hand to enliven the event. Refreshments were served afterwards in the bank building.
