President's Message December 2015

Happy Holidays from UCCU!


At UCCU, we know that money is not the most important thing in life,but it is an important tool in providing for our families and assuring their security. As your financial partner, we at UCCU want to help you achieve financial success. We do this by providing valuable professional services and information. We also help you earn more on you accounts and pay less for loans and other financial services, so you keep more of your hard-earned money.

Local credit union members and noted musicians Roger and Melanie Hoffman stress this simple, but profound message in their delightful children’s musical series:

 Once upon a time there was a sorry little man 
Who said, “I must accumulate all the stuff I can.”
He went out in the afternoon to see a chimp or two.
And then before he knew it – he’d bought the city zoo.
When the snow was falling – he was a merry elf.
He wrapped up Christmas presents – and gave them to himself.
He said, “One more thing. I’ll buy one more thing.
I’ll buy until I’m happy. I’ll buy one more thing”
When he got to heaven he cried out in despair.
He had owned such lovely things, but none of them were there.
He said, “No more things. I have no more things.
Here I am in heaven with no more things.
It’s your heart that counts and the love you bring.
I wish someone had told me life is more than things!”

Although money is not the most important thing in life, successfully managing it gives you time and energy to focus on the things that are most important – like enjoying family, friends, and life’s special occasions.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the UCCU staff, we sincerely wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a great New Year in 2016!
