Appreciation event

TICONDEROGA — Hundreds of Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union (TFCU) members and others from the community participated in the annual Credit Union Week Celebration Oct. 15 to 19. This year’s celebration included three member-appreciation BBQs, the Credit Union’s 4th Annual Shred Fest and a carnival-themed Member Appreciation Event.

“Credit Union Week provides an opportunity for our staff to interact with our members on a different level and give back to the community,” said Shawn Hayes, TFCU president and CEO.

The Community Appreciation Event was a family-friendly, carnival-themed activity that took place Oct. 19 at the Best Western. One attendee, Dawn Davis, was randomly selected to win an iPad.

The Shred Fest was a free paper-shredding event aimed at increasing public awareness of identity-theft prevention. It produced more than 5,600 lbs. of shredded paper resulting in a $443.10 donation to be split among three area food pantries. Non-perishable food donations were accepted in exchange for free paper-shredding.
