In celebrating Youth Week, First Family Credit Union brought a little Harlem to Henryetta, Okla.
The Harlem Shake, that is.
Staffers got their freak on in (their rendition of the viral dance sensation) while donning everything from mustaches—the red-hot symbol of this year’s Youth Week—to motorcycle helmets, beastly masks, neon Afros, and a costume that melds Sacajawea with Daniel Boone.
Oh, and there are guest appearances by a pair of youngsters, one wearing a Darth Vader helmet and suit, the other clothed in camouflage and a zombie mask.
The whole session was recorded and uploaded to YouTube to promote Youth Week activities at the $47 million asset credit union, located an hour south of Tulsa.
“That was fabulous!” one employee commented on First Family’s Facebook page, where the video also was posted. “Just love to be a member of a family I can always count on to be serious and COOL!!!!”
First Family is giving $5 to every youth member who opens a new account this week, and every member making a deposit receives a raffle entry for a LeapFrog LeapPad and Kindle Fire HD.
Last but not least, the credit union is sponsoring a mustache photo contest on its Facebook page. Fans can vote on the entries submitted by members and staff through Friday afternoon.
It is imperative that Congress take action to eliminate the negative consequences of last year’s changes to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, CUNA wrote to a House subcommittee conducting a TCPA hearing Thursday.
CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan discusses this week's congressional activities, as well as advocacy strategies for the CFPB's short-term, small-dollar loan proposal in this week's Advocacy Update video.
Thursday’s hearing on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act will be a good first step toward highlighting ways to modernize the act, CUNA believes. CUNA has expressed a number of concerns with a TCPA ruling made in July 2015.
