Oswego County Federal Credit Union paid out $4,313 to winners of its recent member referral program, said William Carhart, CEO. “Five new referred members and five referring members each had 30 seconds in the OCFCU ‘Pod’ of Gold prize vault on St. Patrick’s Day to win their portion of $2,500 in cash. One winner was able to grab over $600 in thirty seconds.
“The best part, however, is that in the short two months that the program ran, we had more than 136 new members join the OCFCU family. During that time, anyone who referred a new member or any new members who joined were entered in a drawing to be among the ten winners.”
Current members who won were: Tim Chawgo, Fulton; Anthony Nearbin, Oswego; Amanda Fellows, Hannibal; and Tracy Lebeau and Chelsea Kaye, both from Oswego.
New members who won were: Donna Holbrook and Mary Ellen Loura, both from Parish; and Tina Mansfield, Jackie Terpening and Martin Meehan, all from Oswego.
OCFCU opened a new Oswego office in January 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 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. 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 can also be found online at www.oswegofcu.com.
