Surprise! The birthday greeting card also invites our youth members ages 0 - 13 to visit a branch and select a gift from an assortment of goodies. Not only is it a fun reason to visit the credit union, it's also a great time to deposit any birthday money received into a savings account, youth certificate or open a coverdell education savings account.
