Congratulations to our 2019 High School Scholarship recipients.
Each year TwinStar Credit Union offers eight scholarships of $2000 each to members pursuing higher education. You must have been out of high school for at least one year to apply.
The TwinStar Community Foundation is working to eliminate school lunch debt at selected elementary schools in our communities. Last spring, with the help of our members, we were able to eliminate local school lunch debt by donating just over $23,000 to elementary schools in Thurston County.
Terry Johnson of Montesano is the latest TwinStar Credit Union member awarded for participation in the prize-linked savings program, Save to Win. For every $25 deposited into their accounts, members earn one entry into the monthly and quarterly drawings for a chance to win $25-$1,000.
On February 5, 2019, the minimum balance to maintain your share savings account at TwinStar Credit Union was reduced from $25.00 to $5.00.
We think we’re self-sufficient. But let the power go out for 6 hours or more, and we start to see how tied we are to the grid. Phones and tablets run out of juice. TVs and radios don’t work. Food in the fridge spoils. It gets dark. Electric stoves are useless.
