New Mexico CU performs flash mob
ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (9/22/11)--Service members at Holloman Air Force Base, in Alamogordo, N.M., were treated to a flash mob courtesy of Otero FCU on Sept. 9. The flash mob was launched during the Thanks Team Holloman event, which is held annually by the citizens of Alamogordo to thank the men, women and families of Holloman Air Force Base for their service, according to the Credit Union Association of New Mexico (CUANM Update Sept. 16). The idea for the flash mob was proposed by Otero FCU President/CEO Juanita Whiteside, who had seen a similar performance by Innovations FCU in Florida. Whiteside thought it would be a fun event for the OFCU staff to work on and a unique experience for the local community. The flash mob was organized and choreographed by Jesica Sanford, an Otero FCU member service representative. “OFCU always tries to connect with the youth of our communities by conducting financial literacy classes in the local schools and by awarding more than $25,000 in college scholarships in the last several years,” said Greg Shaver, Otero FCU vice president of marketing. “We felt this was a natural way to continue that connection by doing something that was fun and interesting.” The flash mob, which featured on the local KRQE TV news, can also be seen on YouTube.
