Farmers' Bank Successful ( 0:39 min 1 MB )

TRANSCRIPT:

The Farmers' Bank was an organization of farmers of the area and practically all of the farmers of the area, in Rustico here, were members of the Farmers' Bank. And it got even so that the Farmers' Bank had agents in other areas like in Egmont Bay and in Tignish. They had agents up there that took memberships from the people there and they became members of the Farmers' Bank as well. So that was more or less the start of Father Belcourt's ideas of organizing a series of Farmers' Banks across Prince Edward Island.
