This is a yarn about how a single press release about pot misled dozens of major media outlets.

As the summer draws closer to an end, we start gearing up for all things Fall. This includes working with companies who offer Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) to their employees, reviewing retirement plans and investments and helping individuals prepare for the upcoming holiday season. One staple event for MutualBank this time of year is the beginning of our United Way campaign.
MutualBank is a pacesetter company, meaning we run our company campaign prior to the start of the formal United Way campaign. This year, we wanted to do something a little different with our campaign kickoff meeting.
In order to make it fun and raise extra money for United Way, we thought of a contest. We selected several fun costumes and thought about who our employees might be willing to pay money to see wearing them. A couple of executives came to mind and we put the plan into action. Employees voted on the costume by paying $1.00 per vote. At the meeting, we provided a photo opportunity where employees could pay $1.00 to have their photo taken with our executives.
Fortunately, Pat Botts, President, and Lynda Stoner, Vice President and Regional Manager, were great sports! They are willing to do whatever it takes to raise money for United Way. Clearly, you can see that based on their costume. The winning costumes were "Thing 1" and "Thing 2" from The Cat in the Hat.
And who says bankers can't be fun?
