Northwest Community Credit Union Event

Recently Northwest Community Credit Union celebrated their 65th anniversary and wanted floral decorations that reflected how they began. In 1949 6 co-workers at Weyerhaeuser put $50 in a lunchbox with the intention of helping each other out. That year, Weyerhaeuser Springfield Credit Union made its first loan and soon became Northwest Community Credit Union.

The centerpieces for their celebration incorporated both the lunchbox theme and their roots working in the lumber industry.
