CUs financial graveyard float grabs attention
BURLINGTON, Vt. (11/10/08)--The Credit Union of Vermont, Rutland, constructed a float for a Halloween parade that caught the attention of a congressman.

The float, a financial graveyard, highlighted the nation’s economic difficulties caused by the greed of for-profit corporations (Newsline Express Nov. 7). It caught the attention of U.S. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), who took photos of the float, according to the Association of Vermont Credit Unions. “The float was designed to emphasize that credit unions are a safe and sound alternative and are above it all,” said Credit Union of Vermont CEO Brian Fogg. “As has been the case for 10 years, the Credit Union of Vermont was once again the only financial institution participating in the parade.” Staff members wore Halloween T-shirts with the credit union’s name and logo in a pumpkin with “Safe--sound--secure” on the front and back. Credit Union of Vermont has $22 million in assets.
