From the Executive Staff:
As we head back to school, I wanted to remind our members of Credit University.
Credit University is a collaborative effort between several credit unions to bring to financial education to Western Washington high school. If you are a teacher or a parent of a high school student and you would like your teenager to learn about money management and the wise use of credit, please see this website for instructions on booking a free presentation.
We’ve been advertising it all over town. We are offering 10% for 10 months on a $1,000 CD.
On Wednesday, April 10, I’ll be presenting a free workshop on how to be a better boss.
I have three elementary school age daughters. I know this is a first world problem, but they get invited to an overwhelming number of birthday parties.

Seven months ago, I wrote a happy blog post about Josh Dickerson and his apparent victory over cancer

Looking back through some blog archives – I came across this post I published in January of 2006. It was titled “My 2006 Resolution – To Be A Unicyclist”
I saw this floating around on the internet a few weeks back. I couldn’t track down the author. While some of the points might be a bit questionable, overall, the list made me chuckle. I hope you enjoy.
When a long time employee learned that her son had cancer, everyone at the credit union rallied around her and her family. We watched with our breath held as he went through months of chemo and radiation.
Since the idea of Bank Transfer Day took hold, we’ve welcomed over 350 new members to Verity Credit Union and to the credit union movement.
