Truckeroo gives D.C. a taste of CU difference
WASHINGTON (8/11/14)--To celebrate the milestone of 100 million credit union memberships, the Credit Union National Association sponsored the August Truckeroo in Washington, D.C., Friday.

CUNA volunteers, along with other credit union supporters, manned a table throughout the day, handing out "Credit unions are a smarter choice" T-shirts and slap koozies to keep beverages cold.

Located next to the Washington National stadium, the CUNA section offered jump-shot basketball or cornhole games for the many who stopped by.

Employees from local credit unions including Money One FCU, Largo, Md., with $107 million in assets; Prince George's Community FCU, Bowie, Md., with $142 million in assets; NRL FCU, Alexandria, Va., with $455 million in assets; and DGE FCU, Washington, D.C., with $51 million in assets, were also on hand to assist in spreading the good news about the 100 million membership milestone.

The monthly festival features more than 20 food trucks with offerings ranging from cheesesteaks to lobsters, as well as live music throughout the day. There were plenty of dessert options as well, including Italian ice, crepes and a variety of cheesecakes.
