LANSING, Mich. – A member of Wexford Community CU has won a $700 prize as part of a Facebook contest aimed at building awareness of credit unions across the state of Michigan.
Rosemarie McConnell, 54, of Cadillac, won the prize after solving a puzzle that asked entrants to complete a phrase by filling in missing letters, highlighting a benefit of credit unions: “Lower fees and loan rates combined with exclusive discounts add up to big savings for credit union members.”
More than 50 entries were submitted, and McConnell was the first to solve it. McConnell has been a credit union member for more than 30 years. “I love puzzles and I love my credit union, so this competition grabbed my attention right away,” said McConnell.
The contest is part of a statewide campaign aimed at raising awareness of Michigan credit unions that also has included the launch of a new online portal for Michigan credit union information, www.creditunionlink.org.
The next CU Link Facebook promotion, “What would you do with $1,240?” is running now through Sept. 23.
