Community Appreciation & BBQ August 24, 2013
We started together. We grew together. We got together to share our appreciation with our members...and the whole community! Families of all kinds came out for some old-fashioned  fair-like fun, which included horse-drawn wagon rides, music, and activities for all ages. There was even a car show and delicious Chicago-style hot dogs!

Plus, everyone received a special community tribute and of course...heard the new credit union name, WestEdge®, revealed!
