Season’s Greetings from Metro Credit Union! During this special time of year, we want to give thanks to our members who have helped us have a successful 2016. We’re so glad to have you as members and look forward to serving you in the future.
Metro Credit Union had a milestone office anniversary with our Saddle Creek branch being in operation for 30 years. Our new branch located in Papillion off 72nd and Cornhusker opened in January 2016. Our branch office hours changed in early fall to keep the credit union efficient and better at managing costs.
We had a wonderful time with our members at the Metro Credit Union Annual Member meeting in late February. Attendees enjoyed dinner, the board report and interactive Elimination Station train-themed trivia game with prizes.
We were proud to support a variety of community-wide events in 2016. Last spring, Metro Credit Union sponsored NE SciFest, a series of events around Nebraska that engage children and adults in science and we will sponsor again in 2017. We were proud to participate and sponsor the May 2016 American Heart Association Omaha Heart Walk. Our President, Mike McDermott, is Co-Chair along with Chancellor Dr. Jeffrey Gold of the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) of next year’s Omaha Heart Walk taking place May 13, 2017.
In July we contributed to the Owl Ride, Omaha’s nighttime, urban, cycling adventure supporting the Meyer Foundation for Disabilities. In August we participated in the Back to School BBQ for UNMC. Metro’s annual MemberFest was a hit as we celebrated 65 years with members at the Saddle Creek and Maple Street branches in September.
Throughout the year, staff and families volunteered through the Helping Hands of the Lydia House to aid the Open Door Mission. With the upcoming holidays, we will continue our Holiday Fee Exchange program December 1st- December 10th with a collection of diapers, toys and/or warm winter outerwear going to the Open Door Mission to help children and families.
We wish you a very Happy Holiday season and a peaceful and prosperous New Year!
