Colonial Loan Association
The newly elected directors for the Seymour Area Chamber of Commerce (SACC) participated in their first official Ribbon Cutting on Wednesday, June 25th at Colonial Loan Association, Inc.
The day began with the Ribbon Cutting ceremony at 9:30am. Several members of the Seymour Area Chamber, the Seymour Volunteer Fire Department, and members of the community joined folks from Colonial Loan for this special event.
Colonial Loan also hosted an Open House for the community that day, which was held from 10:30am until 4:00pm. The Open House featured: a visit from the Seymour Volunteer Fire Department, a complimentary lunch grilled by Colonial Loan, a visit from the Chick-fil-a mascot, a live remote broadcast with the Sports Animal WNML 99.1, and balloon animals. “We are pleased to have Colonial Loan join the Seymour Chamber and appreciate them hosting this event. It was a great day of fun for families in our community,” said Seymour Chamber President Linda Karam. “We are also looking forward to participating in many more events like this as enterprise in Seymour continues to grow.”
Colonial Loan Association, Inc. is a financial institution licensed under the Tennessee Industrial and Loan Thrift Act, chartered in 1975 as a Savings and Loan subsidiary.

They also do loans on campers, horse trailers, motorcycles, and single/double wide mobile homes with or without land.
