What's New

Movie Nite

UFirst FCU is excited for it's 3rd Annual Movie Night to benefit Camp Ta Kum Ta! At Camp TKT, children battling cancer and their families are provided a safe and loving environment where they can experience challenging as well as every day activities like swimming, bike riding, rock wall climbing, prom and more. Camp exists for Vermont and Northern New York children between the ages of 7-17, at no cost to their families.

Since 2013, UFirst FCU has raised just over $22,000 to benefit Camp Ta Kum Ta thanks to donations received through events like Movie Nite, community shred days, staff jean days, holiday dinner raffle, paint & sip 4 a case and many, many individual donations. Please join us for Movie Nite so we can keep giving back!

Petitions must be returned to the credit union office by the close of business, August 18, 2017. Petition forms are available at the credit union office. The election will not be conducted by ballot and there will be no nominations from the floor when the number of nominees equals the number of positions to be filled.
