- President's Message
Carol A. Allen,
Now that winter is fading away, it's time for a little spring cleaning. Let your friends at PAFCU help. We can shake the dust off your financial burdens and brighten your future with excellent savings opportunities. When you save at PAFCU you can be sure you'll get the best rates and the best products for your hard-earned money.
And speaking of savings, April is National Credit Union Youth Month, an annual event sponsored by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). The purpose of Youth Month is to teach our young members the benefits of saving for their future and provide suggestions on how to stash their cash. PAFCU is gearing up to celebrate Youth Month with lobby days, prizes for opening youth accounts, plus the chance to enter a raffle and win $50.00. Please visit any of our 9 branches to participate.
Keeping in line with the topic of saving, I would like to let you in on a great new product that PAFCU is offering. It's called the Lucky Savers Program. It's actually a 12-Month Building Share certificate, however, this is no ordinary certificate! With Lucky Savers, members are eligible to win monthly and quarterly cash prizes. Yes-cash! All you have to do is open up a Lucky Savers certificate with a minimum deposit of $25.00 and build your savings with minimum deposits of $25.00. Every time you make a deposit of $25.00, you are entered in a drawing to win, giving you up to 10 chances every month. Not only do you get a chance to save, but you get a chance to earn even more. You can't beat that!
As you know, April 15th is right around the corner: the official day to submit your income taxes. For those of you receiving a tax return, it might be a great time to put aside a portion of your returns and invest in a Lucky Savers Certificate or perhaps a long-term high-interest certificate. We have plenty of options for you to choose from. Please come in and speak to one of our member services representatives and see what works best for you.
I would also like to remind you that PAFCU will once again hold our annual scholarship contest to help offset some of those college expenses. Please check our website for details on how to enter that special student in your life. Five lucky winners will be chosen at random for a chance to win $1000.00.
Thank you once again for your continued support. We wouldn't be PAFCU without U. I will leave you with an interesting quote from Ezra Taft Benson.
"Do not leave yourself or your family unprotected against financial storms... Build up savings."
