Let's Go to the Fair!
Join Your Friends & Neighbors at the 2013 Racine County Fair.

Racine County Fair

Join your friends and neighbors from Community State Bank at this year’s Racine County Fair. The Fair will be held from July 24th – 28th, 2013 at the Racine County Fairgrounds in Union Grove, WI.

Volunteer Efforts
An important part of being a community bank is giving back to the communities we serve, and each year the Racine County Fair provides us that unique opportunity. As a member of the Greater Union Grove Area Chamber of Commerce, we work closely with the Chamber each year at the Fair. Our employees volunteer for the day to roast corn and sell other delicious treats at the Chamber’s corn stand.

Along with volunteering at the sweet corn stand, Community State Bank employees clerk the “Fur & Feather Livestock Auction”. Bank employees document the animal sales for the Fair, indicating the seller, the buyer, and the sale amount for each animal.

Financial Support
The Bank’s volunteer efforts are only part of our contribution to the Fair. We are also a proud financial supporter of the Fair as well. In addition to being a Platinum Sponsor, each year the Bank purchases several animals at the livestock auction and sponsors the Steve Meisner Polka Band.

Community State Bank is the exclusive outlet to purchase Mega Ride Passes for the 2013 Racine County Fair. Passes can be purchased at any Community State Bank location (excluding our Motorbank location in Union Grove).

Superheroes Unite!
Grab your running/walking shoes, cape, mask and wrist guards and join us for the second annual Super Saturday 5K | Superhero Fun Run/Walk – sponsored by Community State Bank.

On Saturday, September 7th, ordinary citizens and superheroes will join forces to run and walk side by side down the historic streets of Union Grove.

You don't need to be as fast as the Flash! This untimed event is less about your 10-minute mile and more about having fun with your family and friends – and releasing your inner hero!

All participants will have their choice to register & participate as an Ordinary Citizen or an Awesome Superhero. If you choose Superhero, you will receive a colorful cape, mask and wrist guards as part of the registration! So the question is…which one will you be?

Starting and ending at the Village Square, the flat 3.1 mile run/walk is ideal for families and people of all ages and abilities. Check out the map here.

All participants will receive a goody bag, post-race snacks, and a complimentary drink ticket for Super Saturday night starting at 6:00PM. Enjoy music, food and drinks at the 9th Annual Street Dance in the Village Square.

Are You a Savvy Shopper?
Tips for the Best Time to Buy Seasonal Items.
Savvy Shopper

Savvy shoppers know there's a best time to buy everything. Winter coats, swimsuits, electronics, furniture... Knowing when to shop for specific items (whether they're obviously seasonal or not) can be a very effective way to stay on budget and save money. Here's the quarterly breakdown of what items to shop for.

First Quarter: January - March
Late winter is the best time to buy gas grills and air conditioners as manufactures and retailers get rid of last year's stock in preparation for spring and summer sales. It's also a good time to buy water sports equipment (including boats) as well as winter apparel. The later into winter you get, the better the prices on hats, gloves, coats and boots.

Second Quarter: April - June
Japanese manufacturers' fiscal year ends in March and they're eager to get rid of old stock, so spring and early summer is the best time to purchase TVs and other electronics. Spring is also peak home buying season, so if you're shopping for a new house be prepared for fierce competition. Spring is also a great time to shop thrift stores. After spring cleaning, many households donate their unused or unnecessary items, so thrift stores will have lots of new inventory.

Third Quarter: July - September
Summer is peak sale time for furniture, kids' clothing and school supplies. New furniture inventory comes out in August, so July is the best time to look for on-sale home furnishings. Retailers are also preparing for back to school sales, so children's clothing and school supplies will be cheapest this time of year. Third quarter is also the time to book your holiday travel tickets. Plane tickets should be purchased two months in advance, especially for peak travel times such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Fourth Quarter: October - December
Fall and early winter is the best season to purchase a car, because the new models roll out in late summer. That means the older models are on clearance to make room for the brand-new vehicles. Grills and other summer appliances also start to go on sale this time of year. Christmas sales start early and continue through most of the holiday season. For most toys and games, now is the time to buy.

In addition to shopping during the right time of year, savvy shoppers also know the benefit of buying on the right day of the week. For example, appliances tend to be cheaper on Sundays and major holiday weekends, like Memorial Day or Independence Day. Computers and other electronics are typically less expensive on Mondays, when manufacturers apply their rebates. By planning ahead and shopping at the best time you can stretch your budget a lot more!
