March is Hills Bank’s 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

Penny Savers account holders will enjoy one Double Penny Grab (with a qualifying deposit of $5 or more and a coupon) during the month of March. Watch your mailboxes! Current Penny Savers will receive a coupon for their Double Penny Grab in the mail during the first week of March.

Lucky Egg Prize Winners

Starting March 1st, stop by your local Hills Bank location, 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 20th for all locations. After they hatch, the chicks are taken to a good home on a local farm.

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