The event welcomed thousands of military families, Fort Belvoir residents and community members to a day of family fun, entertainment, free food, and showcased more than 40 local vendors.
 
"We are honored to be celebrating our base and partnership with Fort Belvoir with Belvoir Federal's largest annual event. It is our duty to serve our members just as they have served our country," said Patty Kimmel, Belvoir FCU CEO.
 
Patrons enjoyed two bounce houses, a rock wall, two face painters, a balloon artist, more than five local restaurant and bakery samplings, music from radio station WMZQ, a visit from former Washington Redskins player Derrick Dockery, and local vendors.
 
Throughout the event, patrons were able to enter to win prizes donated by event sponsors. There were 32 prizes awarded to attendees which totaled over $2,000 in value. Prizes included restaurant gift cards, golfing, free nights at hotels, retail gift cards, movie tickets, car wash certificates and event tickets.
 
Such events can foster service excellence while raising awareness about the value of credit unions. Fostering service excellences and raising awareness, along with removing barriers, are the components of the Unite for Good campaign launched by the Credit Union National Association and state leagues to work toward the vision of Americans choosing credit unions as their best financial partners.
