Mid Carolina Credit Union (MCCU) recently held its annual membership meeting, which it also used as a food drive for Christian Community Ministries’ (CCM) food pantry.
According to a MCCU press release, March 29 marked the credit union’s 55th annual meeting and its third annual food drive.
“(It) again grew and exceeded our expecations,” MCCU officials said. “CCM was onsite helping with collections this year and pesonally thanking members for their generosity. With the help our members, we will spread the credit union philosophy of people helping people as all donations stay within our community, going to those in need.”
The night started with the vocal stylings of member Johnny Glenn, who provided entertainment for the 308 credit union members in attendance. During the meeting, members were told about MCCU’s purchase of property on U.S. 1 in Lugoff and the plans to have a new facility and ATM constructed there, to open in 2017.
“This expansion will enhance Mid Carolina’s growth opportunities while also making the credit union more secure and convenient to its current membership,” MCCU officials said.
Volunteer elections were held with the following members elected to the board of directors: Dennis Arledge, Cheryl Colvin and JoAnn Hanks; and Ricky Gause was elected to serve a three-year term on the credit union’s supervisory committee.
Immediately following the meeting, the newly elected board selected its executive officers for the next year. Serving on the executive committee are: Greg Nettles, chairman; Larry Strickland, vice chairman; JoAnn Hanks, secretary; and Cecil Truesdale, treasurer.
Also during the event, $2,800 in cash and prizes were given away, and each member in attendance received a hat, embroidered tumbler and selfie stick with the credit union’s 55th anniversary logo.
