Hello from Terry Kidd, President/CEO!
The temperatures are rising and the world is reawakening for the spring time and it’s great to be a part of it. The credit union also seems to have come alive as spring and summer obligations, home and garden improvements and summer activities begin. All the extra outside activities have added to more transactions for our tellers and more loans for our loan officers. This is a nice change to the quiet days over the winter and allows me to reacquaint myself with many of you. With the increase in home improvements going on right now, I would like point out that we have home equity loans for those who want or need to do some major housing renovations.
This month is National Youth Month and we will be going to schools in the area to present financial information to several classes. If anyone would like me or one of my staff to go to your child’s school please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love any opportunity to speak to children, teenagers, or college students about financial management and literacy.
Many are already starting to plan for graduations and I would like to remind you that we do sell prepaid gift cards for anyone who would like to give a gift card as a present. Remember that ours cards can be loaded with any amount from $5.00 to $500.00, which gives you more flexibility to choose the gift amount you can afford with a lower activation fee.
Here at the credit union our staff has been gearing up for our discount ticket sales program, they have already received tickets in for Cincinnati Zoo, Newport Aquarium, Cedar Point, Dollywood, and Kings Island. More park tickets are expected in over the next several weeks so call our staff for updated discount ticket prices.
The amount of paper that the credit union goes through in a month is staggering and as we try to help the environment by saving trees and using less paper I would like to encourage you to do the same. We have recently added e-statements to our online banking. I encourage everyone to sign on to their online banking go to the Accounts tab, select Account Statement and sign up today!
I am happy to announce that Bluegrass Community FCU has reached another milestone, we have joined Facebook. I encourage everyone to get on the page and like it and go back periodically to see updates on the credit union, what it’s doing and any special offers.
I know that it is the beginning of April but it’s already 6 months until the end of our Christmas Club season. I encourage any of you that have not signed up for our Christmas Club account to do so. Just $5.00 a paycheck for the next 6 months will be $65.00.
As we near the 6 month mark of our Christmas Club program we are coming to the end of our Vacation Club program. I would like to thank everyone who signed up last year and made the Vacation Club program a great success. And for anyone who hasn’t signed up and would like to June 1st is the beginning of the 2014-2015 Vacation Club season and you are more than welcome to come in and join at any time.
With the coming holidays there will also come great sales on New and Used Cars along with Motorcycles and RVs. We are still running our as low as 1.99% loan promotion for anyone who is interested.
