MENOMINEE — CoVantage will join with 56,000 credit unions around the world in celebration of International Credit Union (ICU) Day on Thursday. In honor of this special day, CoVantage Credit Union invites its members and the entire community to your local branch for refreshments.

At its most basic level, a credit union is people pooling their money to provide each other with affordable loans — it is literally people helping people. This cooperative spirit has led to life-changing opportunities for people all over the world who’ve wanted to start a small business or own a home but were denied access to other financial institutions.

The public is welcome to stop by any branch Thursday and celebrate a movement that concerns itself with the financial success of all people.
