Story: It’s the holiday season in small-town Indiana. And, while it’s cold and snowy outside, young Ralphie Parker’s heart is warm with the thought that has motivated him this particular Christmas in the 1940s: To have an official Red Ryder® Carbine-Action, 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle.

Story: Living in an orphanage is no picnic, and the Great Depression makes it even worse. Still, 11-year-old Annie has faith that she’ll find the parents who left her as an infant on the Municipal Girls Orphanage doorstep in New York City back in 1922.
Spotlighting a different veteran each month, First Bank and Greater St. Louis Honor Flight kicked off its ‘Tribute to the Greatest Generation’ program by recognizing World War II veteran Robert Bareford during a recently St. Louis Blues game. Fans enjoyed a video honoring Sgt. Bareford, and cheered as, in uniform and with four generations of family members, he waved to the crowd on the jumbotron. Each time the Blues score first during a game this season, First Bank will donate $104 to Greater St. Louis Honor Flight.
