Do you enjoy taking scenic photos of Summerland? If so, why not enter them in a photo contest sponsored by the Canadian Credit Union Association? You could win $100 and have your photo featured in a regional or national CCUA calendar. Let's show the rest of Canada how beautiful Summerland is! For more information, visit CCUA's website. The contest closes May 13, 2016.
One of the best ways to protect yourself from identity theft is to shred your old papers - and we can help! Our popular Shred-It Day is back on Saturday, May 14, 2016 from 9:30am - 12pm in the credit union parking lot. This year we will be collecting donations for the Giant's Head Grind (tax receipts will be issued.) We kindly ask that you limit the amount of paper for shredding to four boxes, and that you remain with your papers until they are shredded.
