A Valentine’s Day Greeting

On February 17th, 2009, posted in: Uncategorized by

Well, 2008 has folded into 2009 without much change in economic news. Hopefully, we’re on the cusp of some positive changes. But if nothing else has been learned from the “goings on” in recent times, it has been to not shoot from the hip. A wait and see approach is much more prudent and practical. Given that St. Louis Community Credit Union is located in Missouri, we have adopted the state nickname as our official position on economic improvement: “SHOW ME.”

Whatever the circumstances, the calendar turns over this time of year to reflect the holiday of love. That’s right…Valentine’s Day was this past Saturday. I put aside the economic turmoil and the plethora of ugly news to think “love.” I spent time expressing how much I care for so many great people in my life. My wife, my kids, my family, my friends, and the many great employees I work with at the Credit Union. I love them all. And, of course, I love our members…so much so that Cupid struck and I wrote all 33,000-plus members the following poem:

St. Louis Community’s Favorite Valentine

We love our members – and to serve their needs;
To make their lives better, we always lead
With great rates, great service and low, low fees.
Then add lots of convenience – we aim to please.

In 2009, we want the best for each of you.
We pledge “excellence” in all that we do.
These few words are just our way to say,
Thanks for your business and Happy Valentine’s Day.

True enough, I’m no Maya Angelou, but that doesn’t diminish how much we appreciate the relationship that you have with the Credit Union. Thank you, thank you, and thank you.

Know that you are loved.
