Your Dreams Thrive Here

Posted on October 13, 2017 by Kris H.

Dreams Thrive HereInternational Credit Union Day is right around the corner – October 19. Now you might be thinking… “There’s a day to recognize credit unions? What’s up with that?” We'll explain.

Helping you meet your goals is what credit unions do. Whatever your dreams are, we're here to guide you financially to make them come true.

Now - back to International Credit Union Day. ICU Day, as we like to call it, is when we recognize the worldwide credit union movement. This year’s theme is “Dreams Thrive Here.” If you’re not a member of a credit union, stop by and see how credit unions help people achieve their biggest goals in life.

Member Appreciation

A common thread throughout ICU Day is showing appreciation for CU members. Appreciation events vary across the globe – gifts, cookies, free car washes, etc.

TTCU has queued up a special surprise for 150 random members. We could give you more details, but then it wouldn’t be random - or a surprise! If you’re one of the 150, you’ll know it. And, congratulations!
