“The 25th Annual Taste of Jessamine was a wonderful success,” said Kelli Pile, branch manager for the First Southern National Bank Nicholasville location.  “It’s amazing to be a part of such a large showing of fellowship in our community.  The event is not only fun but it’s productive!  We were able to raise over $31,000 to go to three organizations doing amazing work in our very own community.  I feel very lucky to work for First Southern, which stands behind and supports our staff by sponsoring this event.  This year exceeded our expectations, and we look forward to even greater success next year.”
