Credit Union Youth Week

Our youth members (ages 0-18) are encouraged to stop by and participate in Youth Week activities taking place in our offices this week. The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) theme this year is "The Magic of Saving".

Our Main Office, Sparkman Branch, Athens Branch, and Madison Branch each have complimentary refreshments through Friday, April 24th. Youth members can enter a drawing for $50 at each of these locations. (One entry per day). There is also a contest at each of the above offices to guess the number of pennies in a jar with the closest guess winning the dollar amount.

Financial savings are taking place all this week. Any new savings account opened will receive a $15 deposit from the credit union. Any new checking accounts opened for youth members ages 13-18 will earn a free box of checks and a $5 Sonic Card. Open a new Certificate of Deposit (at a lower $300 minimum deposit) for youth members and earn a $5 Sonic Card. It's smart to save money anyway so why not enjoy the perks this week!

The "Magic of Saving" will be topped off Friday with a magic show from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM at our main office. A magician will be on hand and other fun and prizes will be available. In past years, I have dressed up as a pirate (not popular these days!) and a clown during the Friday youth week festivities. This year we will let a real magician handle the entertainment.

We appreciate our youth members for their membership. They are the future of the credit union so we celebrate them during this special week. Stop by one of the participating offices and enjoy the fun!
