Vermont lawmakers receive Valentine treats from CUs
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (2/15/10)--Vermont legislators had a sweet Valentine's Day, thanks to the Association of Vermont Credit Unions (AVCU). For the eighth consecutive year, AVCU delivered chocolates to be given to every senator and representative at the Statehouse. On Thursday, AVCU President Joe Bergeron delivered nearly 200 Lake Champlain Milk Chocolate Heart Pops so staff from the Office of the Sergeant at Arms could place one in each Vermont legislator's mailbox early Friday morning. Each pop is wrapped inside a flyer that lists every Vermont credit union and encourages legislators to visit the association's display in the Statehouse during AVCU's "Hike the Hill" event on March 25. The flyer, designed and prepared by AVCU's Jen Pearson, also explains the credit union difference and points out that today, when other sources of consumer credit have tightened, Vermont credit unions continue to make responsible loans to 280,000 members just as they've done for 71 years. "It's good to remind Vermont's lawmakers that credit unions are a sweet deal for consumers," Bergeron said, "and what better way to do it than with chocolate on Valentine's Day."
