I am the cooperative spirit, and I have been in Montana the next few
months visiting all of Montana’s credit unions and attending all kinds
of events that personify the spirit of a financial
cooperative. There are stories and photos of my adventures here on the page that documents my travels
It has been SO much fun
board meetings, member appreciation barbeques, community events, and
seeing all the families and consumers that are helped by being members
of a credit union. YOUR cooperative spirit
We held prize drawings for participation along the way-- read about the winners below. September 10 -- Prize Winners
Thanks for all the FUN I've been having! We tossed the names of everyone who send in a photo, posed with COOP, or mailed us a postcard by noon on September 10. And, drum roll please....Individual Winners:
$50 VISA Gift Card -- Audrey Cleek (Lincoln County CU)
I Caught That Cooperative Spirit T-Shirts -- Cindy Scheetz (Badlands FCU), Mick Karls (Rocky Mountain CU), and Lidnsay Beatty (Lincoln County CU)Credit Union -- Lincoln County CU
Every month, Lincoln County CU staff gather together for a morning meeting, and COOP's providing breakfast treats at the next one.
Most Creative/Unique Place COOP popped up
To spark a little creativity, we offered a special prize -- a poster that states the "10 Reasons CO-OPs Rock!"
-- for the most original place COOP was sighted this past month. It wasn't easy -- but two entries floated to the top. One that offered a look at the commitment and, uhm, courage it takes to be a cooperative spirit. Here are the winners.Fall Forum Awards
We closed out the campaign during the Fall Forum in Helena October 23-25 and drew for additional prizes. We awarded a few prizes for "above and beyond" participation, and drew for others from the full list of participants, and for "Most Spirited" awards from creative and active participants.
