What a great weekend for Hawthorne!

What a great weekend for Hawthorne Credit Union! Why was it great? It was great because we demonstrated support of two very worthwhile organizations in Bolingbrook and Naperville.

First---our fantastic representation in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Walk held last Friday @ Naperville North High School. We had the highest turnout ever of Hawthorne employees and their family members for a community volunteer event. I would like to thank our two staff co-captains Cheryl Lestina and Carl Freundt for their special efforts to make this a successful event for the “Relay” and for Hawthorne. Their efforts along with those of several others: Carla, Becky and Mary contributed to a fun night and raised more than $2,000 for the American Cancer Society. What a great way to raise money for an important cause while having a good time and representing Hawthorne all at once!

Thanks to everyone who participated!

A special thank you to Judy Clyne and her husband John who attended the Bolingbrook Park District Dance Force Awards Dinner last Saturday night. I know they both had a very busy and full day last Saturday topped off by the awards dinner. As Judy stated in her email, we do make a difference in our communities---not just through the services that we offer and how we help our members, but also how we help out various community based organizations. We should all be proud of the way Hawthorne Credit Union was represented this past weekend—and how you made that distinction!

Thanks again to all who participated.

Carl S.
