Giving Back to Our Community
February is a happy month at CJCU. We are busy making & collecting home made Valentine’s cards to pass out to our local resident care homes. All cards are due in CJCU’s office by February 11th so we can be sure to deliver these with a piece of chocolate to the residents. On February 14th, CJCU celebrates its 68th anniversary and we have a sweet treat to give to each member to show our appreciation.
Remember, Monday, February 21st is President’s Day and our office is closed in observance of this day.
Annual Dinner Business Meeting
This year we are able to host CJCU’s Annual Dinner Business Meeting in person on Saturday, March 12. We will have a St. Patty’s Day themed party at the Corry Moose Club. Doors open at 5:30pm. Dinner will be served at 6:00pm. We are playing bingo, there will be a cash bar available, and Chinese auction baskets to win. All proceeds from the basket ticket sales will benefit CJCU’s High School Scholarship Fund. Purchase tickets at CJCU and plan to join us for a fun filled evening. May the “Luck of the Irish” be with you.
