April 2019 Newsletter
We Are Looking for "Saving Stars"
April is National Financial Literacy Month and Credit Union Youth Month
This year we want to practice what we preach. Several employees from New Dimensions are giving up or substituting some of their favorite things, such as drinks, lunches, etc. in an effort to save the extra money to pay down debt.

This effort is called the Team Teal Savings Challenge and we’d like to know if you’d like to join us. The challenge starts on April 1, 2019, and ends on April 30th. All participants will report at the end of the month to see how much money was saved. You can even get your children involved and show them that setting small goals will make a difference.

Speaking of your children, we think that with their enthusiastic imaginations, they are particularly good at dreaming. But to make dreams come true, they will need to have clear goals and, very likely, save some money to make them happen. Credit unions can help our members on both counts. Our theme for Youth Month this April is “Saving Stars.” We’re encouraging all members, under 18, to write down their dreams and then take steps to make those dreams come true. These steps could be small or big, but no matter what. it will be impactful. We are so sure this will lay the groundwork for their future success, that we are offering 2 Savings Challenges to our youngest members.

The youth challenges are for anyone under the age of 18 who makes a deposit in April, while the Team Teal Savings Challenge is for members of any age. Please contact Tanya Verzoni to sign up.
