Employees at the company’s Madison, Wis.; Waverly, Iowa; and Fort Worth, Texas, locations picnicked and participated in other activities commemorating CUNA Mutual’s incorporation on May 20, 1935. “This is a special year for CUNA Mutual as we recognize and celebrate our company’s 75th anniversary,” said Jeff Post, president/CEO of CUNA Mutual. “Thursday was perfect picnic weather and a great day to celebrate our enduring partnership with credit unions and the communities in which we operate.” In Madison, more than 20 classic cars were displayed by employees and others. One vehicle, a 1935 Chevrolet Two-Door Standard, was used in the filming of “Public Enemies,” shot primarily in Wisconsin and starring Johnny Depp. The car, owned by Wayne and Linda Schuette, was accompanied by memorabilia from the movie, based on John Dillinger’s legendary life of crime. At a companywide staff forum, CUNA Mutual displayed a commendation from Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle, who acknowledged the company’s contributions to the community and the marketplace it serves. Hundreds of employees staked out picnic areas early and took part in outdoor games. They also participated in indoor games, including the “Heritage Challenge,” a historical interactive game that tested employees’ knowledge of the credit union movement and the company's close ties to the not-for-profit financial cooperatives. CUNA Mutual has other anniversary recognition events planned for June, in August when the company opened for business, and in October when it paid its first claim for $40 on the death of a Milwaukee Road railroad switchman.
