As we enjoy the cautious excitement of moving back to more normal operations, our ever-popular Shred Day drive-thru event happened on June 12 at the San Luis Obispo branch, and another one will pop up in the North County in the fall. We’d love to see more members choose paperless savings and loan statements so you have less to shred; electronic statements in Online Banking provide more secure recordkeeping right at your fingertips. But we’ll still offer Shred Days to help with your overall safe confidential document disposal.

The cooperative philosophy of credit unions has always supported the notion of equality for all members: one member, one vote, one voice. There are no stockholders. Our earnings are used to keep rates  competitive and fees low, and to provide financial access to all.

I’d like to start by saying thank you for your generous support throughout August to help raise funds for Jack’s Helping Hand, a local nonprofit that offers programs for special needs children and their families. Over the last five years, you’ve contributed over $35,000 to help build the Jack Ready Imagination Park, a universally accessible playground where special needs children can play along-side able-bodied children in a safe, sunny environment. It was truly an honor to walk into our branches and see the walls covered with handprints as a display of your support.
