Oswego County Federal Credit Union, in cooperation with the Oswego Youth Bureau, will be sponsoring free open air Movies in the Park at 7 p.m. in East Park on the third Wednesday of each month from June through August, said Bill Carhart, OCFCU CEO.
“Our first movie on June 18 is ‘Frozen’ (PG),” Carhart said. “Followed by Despicable Me 2 (PG) on July 16, and The Lego Movie (PG) on Aug. 20.”
In addition to the movie, the OYB and Oswego Kiwanis club will be sponsoring entertainment and arts and crafts. There will be free popcorn, the Oswego Bookmobile, and the Oswego County Sheriff’s Department, will be on-hand with identity kits for kids.
“Plus kids can play Wii games on a 55-foot screen before the movie. There will also be face painters sponsored by Galloway Century 21. The movie will be shown by CNY and Syracuse FunFlicks.”
“We are delighted to bring this family entertainment to our community as part of the fun activities available here in the summer months,” said Carhart.
OCFCU opened a new Oswego office in Jan. 2013 on the corner of E. 4th and Bridge St. It replaced its former E. 7th St. location and is more than twice its size. In Dec. 2010, OCFCU opened a brand new office in Mexico at 5828 Scenic Ave. (Route 3) where they converted and renovated the village’s former railroad depot into a modern credit union, Carhart said. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. The credit union’s third office is at 300 W. 1st St. in Oswego.
Founded in 1975, OCFCU is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative association, which serves more than 9,000 members from throughout Oswego County. OCFCU’s charter was revised in early 2007 so that anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Oswego County is eligible to join.
OCFCU’s 300 W. 1st St. office can be reached at 326-0138 and the E. Bridge St. office can be reached at 343-7822. The 5530 Scenic Ave. (Route 3) Mexico office can be reached at 963-2722. Further information on the credit union can also be found online at www.oswegofcu.org.
