Thousands arrive for Belvoir FCU event for military civilians
WOODBRIDGE, Vt. (7/28/11)--Belvoir FCU in Woodbridge,Va., celebrated the sixth annual Installation Appreciation Day on Saturday in Fort Belvoir, Va. With thousands in attendance, Belvoir Federal demonstrated their appreciation for the military and civilian families associated with the Fort Belvoir community. The event was due in part to the contributions from surrounding businesses, credit union partners and vendor sponsorships. With these combined efforts, the $269 million asset Belvoir FCU provided free activities, including: a rock climbing wall, car showcase, fire truck display, face painters, a clown, musical entertainment, free food and celebrities signing autographs. The Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team and the USO of Metropolitan Washington provided games for attendees. Belvoir Federal also held a drawing for more than 20 prizes, including a vacation cruise. During the three-hour event, Belvoir Federal’s CEO/President Patricia Kimmel, presented the USO a $5,000 check to illustrate the continued support of the base and the mission to continually serve its members. Garrison Commander Colonel John Strycula and Command Sergeant Major Gabriel Berhane were also present during the check presentation to the USO. Strycula commented on the wonderful relationship the base has with the credit union and hopes the partnership continues to grow in the years to come. “Belvoir Federal is honored to be the credit union for Fort Belvoir and enjoys giving back to the community whenever the occasion presents itself,” Kimmel said. Belvoir Federal has served the Fort Belvoir and U.S. Armed Forces community since 1946.
