OCTOBER - DECEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER

 

 VISIT BKCU ON INTERNATIONAL CREDIT UNION DAY-OCTOBER 18th

This year’s theme is “Find Your Platinum Lining” combining the traditional gift of platinum for 70th anniversaries with a play on the saying “every cloud has a silver lining.” It emphasizes the credit union movement’s loyalty to its members and its mission to provide them financial support and guidance. It’s about people helping people. That’s why credit unions always offer a platinum lining! On October 18th, BKCU will celebrate the 70th anniversary of International Credit Union Day. Come by the office for refreshments, special giveaways and to register for our drawing to win a deposit to your share account (one $50 & two $25 deposits) and other prizes that will be given away in honor of this special day!
