London Home and Garden Show
boomerang Credit Union participated in the London Home and Garden Show at the Western Fairgrounds on Friday, April 19-21, 2013. The show presented a unique opportunity to showcase all the services boomerang Credit Union offers it’s members. As well, we were able to create brand awareness for members of the public who were not yet familiar with our new name.
Attendees of the show were given free RFID sleeves to protect their debit and credit cards. As well, one lucky participant won a free i-Pad mini by putting their name into our draw!
Second Family First Event – A Huge Success!
Even though the gates were not scheduled to open until 7:00 pm. at Storybook Gardens, members began arriving at the park as early as 5:30 pm. Nearly 300 members and their guests joined us in celebrating several milestones. Storybook Gardens, London’s #1 family landmark celebrated its 50th anniversary, while the Credit Union celebrated our 60th anniversary.
The weather cooperated and the rain that threatened all evening did not materialize, allowing the members and their guests to enjoy the evening’s activities. The splash pads were a huge hit as were the Birds of Prey show and the seal feeding. We were fortunate to be the first group to try out the brand new ferris wheel on its first day of operations.
We donated $5 on behalf of each attendee to ReForest London.
We also had an amazing response to our survey that was distributed to all those in attendance. Over half of the people who came responded to the survey and the responses were amazing. Most wanted us to repeat the evening’s event at Storybook again in the future.
