2nd Community Fest Featured Family Fun
May 11, 2017 – “We had bounce houses, face painting and games for children of all ages in the Kids’ Fun Zone along with performances by the Ladies for Liberty; a special drawing for two bicycles; and, much more,” said Ray Springsteen, Fort Knox Federal Credit Union President and CEO, about the 2017 Annual Membership Meeting and Community Fest held May 9 at the Performing Arts Center (PAC) located at John Hardin High School. About 750 Credit Union members and their family members attend the event.
In addition to the Fun Zone, the renowned Lindsey Family singers performed immediately following the membership meeting. The Ladies of Liberty appeared during the reception in the school’s commons area.
“We always want to emphasize that the Credit Union is a family and we have fun activities for the entire family,” said Richard L. Ardisson, Chairman of the Board of Directors.
During the business portion of the Membership meeting, Chairman Ardisson and other Board officers reported on Fort Knox Federal’s progress and financial performance during 2016. “The Board is very pleased to report that during 2016, the Credit Union helped more members to purchase houses, buy cars, remodel their homes and generally improve the financial quality of their lives. Fort Knox Federal again grew assets and introduced new and improved services,” Ardisson added.
“I am pleased to report that the condition of your Credit Union is excellent. Fort Knox Federal increased assets in 2016 by more than $90 million dollars of your deposits, savings, and retirement accounts as part of another banner year for the Credit Union,” Ardisson told Credit Union members during the business meeting.
“Fort Knox Federal is also continuing to grow by adding a new branch in Bowling Green set to open this summer,” Springsteen said later during the meeting. Fort Knox Federal will have a total of 17 branches throughout central Kentucky, including a branch in southern Jefferson County, and is the only financial institution with branches both on and off post.
“Every day, we help members save money by refinancing loans, or help them earn more on their savings for their child’s education. This is at the heart of our financial cooperative and our philosophy of ‘People Helping People.’ These individual stories of helping members are our measure of success,” Springsteen added.
