Last week, the Maurie C Byrne Chapter in Grand Forks, ND donated $500.00 to the Northlands Rescue Mission. The Mission is a place of rescue, relief and restoration for all who come, no matter their needs or challenges. For the homeless living on the streets, they are a hot meal, a warm bed and a second chance. For the mentally ill, they are a safe harbor that offers compassionate care. For an impoverished family in crisis, they are a source of help and hope. Through this donation, the chapter hopes to touch several of the programs that the mission has in place, including the Backpack Program. Locally, over 610 children each week receive a grocery bag filled with two breakfasts, two lunches, two snacks, and two beverages to help them through weekends, when they do not receive a meal at school. Shown in the photo above are Sue Shirek, Executive Director of Northlands Rescue Mission, and Katie Parkman, Treasurer of the Maurie C Byrne Chapter of Credit Unions.

The Central Chapter held their annual ditch walk and clean-up in Huron, SD on October 2nd. An impressive number of credit union staff, volunteers, and family met to help beautify their community. The chapter holds this event each year as part of their community service efforts. The photo below shows the clean-up crew along with the massive pile of debris they removed from area ditches.

On October 4th, the Red River Chapter group of Young Professionals had a roundtable discussion with area credit union leaders and executives. The panel shared their journeys in the credit union industry and fielded questions from attendees. “There was a lot of great discussion between our leaders and young professionals,” said Laura Bryson, Assistant Branch Manager at Town & Country CU. Shown in the photo below are roundtable panel members: Nate Medhus, Fargo Market Manager VP, First Community Credit Union; Jim Schaefbauer, VP Member Services, Capital Credit Union; Nick Woodard, CEO United Savings Credit Union, and Mike Mulwani, SVP Town and Country Credit Union.
