ROBESON SAVINGS & LOAN
APPLICATION FOR PEMBROKE
PROBABLY WILL BE HELD SOMETIME IN FEBRUARY
The hearing scheduled for December 15,
1977 concerning an application to establish
a branch office in Pembroke by Robeson
Savings and Loan Association has been
posponed until "probably sometime in
February, 1978," according to a letter
received from W.L. Cole, administrator for
the Savings and Loan Division of the North
Carolina Department of Commerce
If the branch office is established in
Pembroke, it will have to receive approval
from the savings and loan division's board
According to Cole, the application
hearing was postponed "... because we
(the savings and loan division) did not have
the time to complete our investigation and
still get the information to the
commissioners for their consideration."
The postponement means that the savings
and loan division has set back the date
whereby individuals may express an
opinion on the matter.
Those wishing to express an opinion ot
the matter may write:
State of North Carolina
SAVINGS AND LOAN DIVISION
Post Office Box M-27945
Raleigh, North Carolina 27611
A sampling of opinion by the Carolina
Indian Voice shows that the majority of
those polled are against the application
request by Robeson Savings and Loan
