According to Carhart, no purchase is necessary, but you must be a member to participate.  Each winner will have thirty seconds to catch as much money as they can in the prize vault while it’s blown all around them by high-speed fans.

OCFCU opened a new Oswego office in January 2013 on the corner of East Fourth and Bridge Street. It replaced its former East Seventh Street location and is more than twice its size. In December 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. First St. in Oswego.

Founded in 1975, OCFCU is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative association, which serves more than 8,800 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. First St. office can be reached at 326-0138 and the East Bridge Street office can be reached at 343-7822. The 5530 Scenic Ave. (Route 3) Mexico office can be reached at 963-2722.
