  • The Rincones Presbyterian Credit Union has started  teaching the kindergarten children in Holman about saving. The director, Teresita Vigil and supervisory committee member, Florence Trujillo are directing the program.

    Last Friday Trujillo brought banks for each child. They are in the shape of colorful crayons and each child’s name is printed on his bank.
