International Credit Union Day 2019 at RMLEFCU

International Credit Union Day at RMLEFCU

Local Service. Global Reach.

Celebrate 71 years of International Credit Union Day® at RMLEFCU.

On Oct. 17, 2019, credit union members around the world will celebrate International Credit Union Day®, an annual event to commemorate the credit union movement’s impact and achievements. This year marks the 71st anniversary. In honor of this special day, RMLEFCU invites its members and the entire community to come stop by any branch for snacks and RMLEFCU swag!

Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October. Each year, the international event affords the opportunity to remember credit unions’ proud history and promote awareness of and support for the credit union and financial cooperative difference. This year’s theme is “Local Service. Global Reach.” It speaks to how each credit union serves a local community—and it is because of that local service in communities across the world that we have a global credit union movement that’s now 260 million members strong. ICU Day 2019 is a celebration of the impact credit unions and other financial cooperatives have made—and continue to make for their members. It is also a chance to be thankful for the lives and communities that have been improved by our movement.

International Credit Union Day is recognized by the World Council of Credit Unions, the global trade association and development platform for credit unions and other financial cooperatives, as well as numerous national credit union trade associations and federations around the world.

Credit unions from around the world will join forces to celebrate the day with membership drives, contests, and fundraisers to help their local communities. Credit unions will share their activities with the global community on social media using #ICUDay and #LocalServiceGlobalReach.

This past week at the Northglenn Community Center, we had the honor of presenting Northglenn Police Department officers with the Unparalleled Community Impact Award and Outstanding Act of Service Awards.

The awards are meant to honor law enforcement officers who consistently demonstrate outstanding community service. We created this award because we are constantly impressed with the exceptional community service our local law enforcement officers demonstrate and believe their good deeds should be formally recognized and appreciated. We value our members and their noble professions, and we would like to acknowledge the great community we serve.

Officer Brian Kidwell received the Unparalleled Community Impact Award for his leadership and organization of the annual “No Shave Novembeard” for the American Cancer Society. For this event, all staff members are allowed to grow beards and goatees for the month of November in an effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society and build awareness throughout the department.  Officer Kidwell has organized the event, solicited donations and participant gifts, and organized the shave-off with Floyd’s Barbershop in Northglenn. In 2017, he took it to the next level by going three months with no shave to raise even more money.

Northglenn officers Lindsey Queiser, Chad Reffel, Patrick Toelle, and Ibrahim Yasin received the Outstanding Act of Service Awards for their heroic acts involving a roll-over car accident. The team of Queiser, Reffel, Toelle, and Yasin responded to a vehicle rollover accident in March.  When the officers arrived, the vehicle was flipped over and on fire, and it was unknown if the driver was in the vehicle.  With a closer look, they observed the driver was pinned inside the vehicle.  Together, they were able to get the driver out before the entire car was engulfed in flames. The driver made an appearance at the event and personally thanked the officers for saving his life.

After the award ceremony, attendees were invited to enjoy food from the Denver Biscuit Bus compliments of RMLECU.
