recently, with about 300 SECU team members participating in the annual three-mile march. Credit union staff in the area collected donations through various events, including a Cutest Baby and Pet Contest, gift basket bids, raffles, candy bar sales and individual donations. Many branches outside the Triangle area also raised funds and participated in local walks, adding thousands more to the total. "Once again, the SECU team has outdone themselves. Their passion and commitment to this mission is bigger than the problems in our economy," said LaRonda S. Scott, division director of the Eastern Carolina Division of March of Dimes.

s pictured with friends made during a Burnsville Morning Rotary Club humanitarian mission to Haiti in February. Organized by Haiti Outreach, the mission focused on providing assistance near Pignon, an area devastated by the 2010 earthquake. Stowell and his group collaborated with Haitians to build and maintain community-initiated projects to advance their development. For three days, he worked on the major Pignon project, building a pump house. He also attended the dedication of a well, which cut Haitians' travel time to a water source from four hours to 45 minutes. Stowell, who is incoming district governor for Rotary District 5950, also visited the village of Ronkit to begin planning, funding and constructing a school. He likened his work with the service organization with his role in the credit union industry. "It's all about serving others," he said, "whether it's a fresh water supply for a Haitian mother or helping a member achieve a financial dream, it's great to know that others will have a better way of life because of the work we have done."
