Dakota Credit Unions Celebrate ICU Day!
Last Thursday was International Credit Union (ICU) Day, and we hope you enjoyed the occasion with some fun and recognition. Our cooperative industry does so many great things to improve the lives of credit union members and communities all across the Dakotas – every day, every week and month, year after year. It’s important to share those stories, after all, if we don’t “toot our own horns” a bit, who will?
We did a little “Facebook Creeping” to see how you were honoring the day, and here are some of the posts we found. Enjoy, and keep sharing your stories!
Bluestone FCU (Sioux Falls, SD) served apple cider and donut holes and held a drawing for a great prize package that included a portable power station with solar panels!

Levo Credit Union (Sioux Falls, SD) marked the day by serving members cookies and Perky coffee in each of their branches. In a message to the community, President/CEO Fran Sommerfeld said, “We are owned by our members, so we are all about serving them. We believe in extraordinary service, so we like to work with each member to understand their unique financial needs. We live, work and worship in the areas we serve, and that means we understand the local market, the pressures you’re under, and we often know our members. You don’t get that with a big bank.”
