MEMBERstrong 2016 – Share the Love

Although it seems like yesterday, in 2016, we celebrated our 65th anniversary and in February held our annual MEMBERstrong event. During this time, we kicked off the opportunity for one lucky member to win a cruise vacation. Our Share the Love grand giveaway involved staff and members to nominate a worthy member for the drawing.  We had over 100 entries into our promotion, receiving many deserving stories.

Our winner, Ms. Glenda Sanders was nominated by co-workers noting her amazing self-less acts, compassion, and caring nature. Ms. Sanders has been a member with HCFCU for 27 years and working with the county for quite some time. When she isn’t caring for someone else, she is always going out of her way to make sure things run smoothly in the office. When notified of her luck, she immediately stated she would hope to find the time off and would take her family with her on her trip.

Ms. Sanders enjoyed a five-night Carnival cruise to Cozumel, visiting Yucatan and Progreso along the way. She rang in the 2018 New Year on the ship, with party hats and whistles, experiencing a balloon drop at midnight.

Ms. Sanders expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to experience and receive this excellent gift.

Congratulations Ms. Sanders, on your fantastic adventure and wishing much more to come. We are thrilled we can provide this type of giveaway and many unforgettable memories to a great member.
