Jennifer Kent

The Face of Chase
Meet Jennifer Kent, dog lover, runner, lake connoisseur, and teller at Chase Bank on Main Street. Jen is a charming asset to our Downtown community. And while we’re talking community, we’d like to take a moment to say thank you to Chase for letting visitors use their parking lot after banking hours. Thank you!

Dog of the Month

Sometimes you gotta stop and smell the petunias. Meet Watson, a Westie cared for by Cindy and Rick Kron, of the Louisville Krons. When not taking ridiculously adorable pictures of Watson, Cindy and Rick lend their talents to the Louisville DBA as Treasurer and Secretary, respectively. Gotta love Louisville.
