CBCCU: 20 years with schools

Clarkston Brandon Community Credit Union will soon be celebrating its 20 years of partnership with Brandon schools.

The program, which started in 1991, has a goal “to teach the youth some financial information, in order to grow that way,” said Renee Doyle, Brandon Schools coordinator at the Credit Union. “Some of them learn how to be a teller or bookkeeper. Others learn how to grow and save money and they learn about other accounts.” The biggest message that the kids should walk away with is that “the credit union is here to serve their needs,” said Doyle.

The celebration will be held Oct. 13 at Harvey Swanson Elementary, 209 Varsity Drive, Ortonville, at the outdoor playground area from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join the celebration which will include food, a raffle, giveaways, and much more. There is no cost to attend. For more information, please contact the branch office at 248-627-9944.
