Skyline Credit Union, headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., was able to host its annual Christmas Party this year for members with Christmas Club accounts on Thursday, Nov. 10, from 2:30 to 4 p.m. in the auditorium of Skyline Medical Center. The party was canceled for the last two years because of COVID-19.
Members were very excited that the party was being held this year. The party’s purpose is for members to receive their Christmas Club savings checks. There were approximately 229 in attendance.
The theme of the party this year was “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” There were centerpieces on every table featuring Rudolph standing by lighted trees with presents all around. All centerpieces were available for sale to the members. Delicious refreshments were offered to all, including a special and scrumptious chocolate foundation. Santa was present getting everyone’s list and handing out candy canes.
As members left, they were the recipient of two handmade Rudolph ornaments. One was made of clothespins and the other was “glittering with gold” reminding us to be certain to begin our Christmas savings for next year.
Christmas Clubs have been around for a long time, since 1909. They have been one of the longest-lasting accounts in credit unions and small banking history. Your mother probably had one. If you have never had one, why don’t you consider opening one for next year! Merry Christmas!
