Moving the Alaska Spirit

Alaska is a state that spans 2,400 miles from east to west. There are more than 3 million lakes within its borders. Seventeen of the 20 tallest mountains in the country are in the state. From coast to coast, Alaska covers more than 500,000 square miles.

For decades, residents and visitors have been finding creative ways to navigate The Last Frontier. First National Bank Alaska has dedicated its 2006 calendar to transportation within the vast land.

The calendar, Moving the Alaska Spirit, was released today at the banks holiday open house, hosted at each of its 28 branches.

Navigating Alaska whether in terms of business or transportation has always been a demanding endeavor, said Vice Chair and Chief Operating Officer Betsy Lawer. But Alaskans seem to rise to the challenge.

Bank President D.H. Cuddy is one of those innovators. He is featured on the March page of the calendar, with the story of flying his own airplane thousands of miles in the 1950s and 1960s to visit with bank customers.
First National offers a free calendar to its customers.

Calendars are at all branches. The bank has been producing an annual calendar for more than 20 years.

Established in 1922, First National is Alaskas largest locally owned and operated bank, with ATMs and 28 branches in 16 communities throughout Alaska.
