International Credit Union Day celebrated

International Credit Union Day on Oct. 16 - a chance to enjoy a cookie & reflect on how fortunate the West Boundary is to have one here.

Dave and Birdie Lyle of Midway were fortunate to come into the Heritage Credit Union in Greenwood last Thursday. After they finished their banking at the counter they took advantage of a cup of coffee and cookie in celebration of the International Credit Union Day. International Credit Union has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. This year's theme is 'Local Service. Global Good.' – emphasizing credit unions' positive impact in their communities and around the world.
