HANNIBAL | The F&M Bank and Trust Co., sponsor of Hannibal's annual pet show during National Tom Sawyer Days, has announced it will have an online virtual format this year.

This is our favorite event of the year,” F&M Bank and Trust President Carl Watson said. “It’s fun for our community and our employees to be a part of this show.

In order to follow social distancing guidelines, we came up with this idea as a solution,” he said. “There has also been a bit of confusion surrounding our pet show and how it will be held, so we wanted to make sure everyone is aware of the changes for 2020.”

Anyone age 13 and under who would like to participate in the Virtual Pet Show for 2020, is asked to post a photo or video of their pet on the F&M Facebook page (with their parent’s help) between June 17 and July 1.

All submitted photos or videos posted on the F&M Facebook page will be judged on July 2 and winners will be announced the same day. More details are on the F&M Bank and Trust Facebook page.
