CU System
CUs make the listening easy in the summertime
MADISON, Wis. (6/12/14)--As school lets out and the weather heats up, credit unions are helping their communities celebrate summer through sponsorships of local festivals and entertainment venues.
 
Robins FCU, Warner Robins, Ga., with $1.9 billion in assets, contributed $500 towards sponsorship of the Gray Station Better Hometowns Daylily Festival, held June 6 and 7. In addition to the flowers, the event included arts and crafts, a corn hole tournament, 5K and fun runs, a children's area, live music and a car show (WMAZ13.com May 13).
 
Teachers FCU, Hauppauge, N.Y., with $4.9 billion in assets, is the title sponsor of the 2014 Sunset Concert Series. This year's performances, scheduled from the Fourth of July through Labor Day, include rock classics, bluegrass, classical and jazz.

Meritrust CU, Wichita, Kan., with $969 million in assets, is among the sponsors of Country Stampede, a four-day country music festival.
