If You Did Not Have Money This
Xmas, Why Not Start Now and
N Be Prepared for Next Xmas.
——“ ' ;
In December, 1920. the Annapolis Ranking and Trust Company
inaugurated and offered to the people of this community, the op
portunity of having money every tv systematic savings.
This .was in the form of the Christmas Savings Accounts which
have become so popular in this city. Every year the mimlcr. of
accounts opened have doubled themselves and this vear the ac
counts opened at this l.ank are far ahead of the record made in
loth of the previous years. These facts show the popularity these
Accounts, new have in this city and the number of people who
have joined them. Some of the advantages of these Accounts are:
first, it provides a plan ly which a person can set aside small sums
each week and le suic of having money at Christmas Time. This
plan of Saving is spread out over a year's time and the person does
not miss the money so set aside. Secondly, we also call your
attention to the fact that you receive interest upon those Accounts
at the rate of 4'l. provided the club is paid in full. However,
should a person join a club and pay in a certain amount and then
linn ho can not keep on laying, he receives the entire amount paid
•a next Christmas. The interest upon these accounts, arc figured
on a weekly 1 asis and the money starts to draw interest from the
time it is deposited in the Lank.
The period for opening these Accounts at this bank will le until
January and in order to join ycu merely bring in your deposit
and we give you a Christmas Ciab Pass Rook, showing the Club
you have joined and tho amount deposited.
