March is Ag Month at Hills Bank

Hills Bank Ag Month

It’s that time of year again, our annual Hills Bank celebration of spring and agriculture, with Ag Month events all March long! Agriculture is intertwined with our history, heritage, and values, and remains an important part of our culture today. Check out the many different Ag Month activities below, mark your calendars, and enjoy all the new beginnings this spring will bring.

Double Penny Grab Saturdays

Penny Savers account holders will enjoy a Double Penny Grab (with a qualifying deposit of $5 or more) every Saturday in the month of March.

Lucky Egg Prize Winners

Starting March 1st, stop by your local Hills Bank location and choose the numbered egg you predict will hatch first and you could be a LUCKY prize winner! (No purchase or account required to enter or win. Need not be present to win.)

Baby Chick Hatchings

Baby chicks are scheduled to hatch the week of March 14th for Johnson and Washington Counties, and the week of March 21st for Linn County locations. After they hatch, they are taken to a good home on a local farm within the Corridor.

Please note, there are no baby chicks hatching at the Iowa Memorial Union or University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics locations.

    What exactly is Double Penny Grab meant for Penny Savers account holders?

    • Dave Kriz Dave Kriz says:

      Sanjoy, great question! A Double Penny Grab means that Penny Savers depositing $5 or more into their account will get to grab a handful of pennies twice, instead of once. To celebrate Ag Month, every Saturday in March is a double penny grab day!
