MADISON, Wis. (10/22/08)--Among many activities by credit unions nationwide, Illinois Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn was joined by credit union and community officials at a press conference on International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) Oct. 16 to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Pembroke Township CU.

Pembroke Township CU is a branch of Credit Union 1 in Rantoul, Ill. In 2005, Quinn and Team Illinois, which is led by the Department of Human Services, worked to create a plan to bring financial services to the area. The result was a branch of Credit Union 1 in Pembroke Township, according to the Illinios Credit Union League. “I’m a lifelong credit union member,” Quinn said. “Credit unions are an ideal way for everyday citizens to save, borrow and build personal and community wealth. “With this year’s theme, ‘It Belongs to Me,’ we’re reminding the people of Illinois that despite the current economic uncertainty our nation faces, breaking the cycle of poverty can be done if we build a community of active, informed consumers,” he added. Quinn also was joined by Hopkins Park Mayor Samuel Payton, and Rachel Lakes-Bingham, office manager of Pembroke Township CU, at the conference. Other ICU Day activities reported to News Now:
