Thunder Up with the Greater Oklahoma Chapter!
 As luck would have it, our October 19, 2017 chapter meeting is on the same day as the Oklahoma City Thunder home opener! We all support the Thunder, but we want to show our support of Caroline Willard, President and CEO of the Cornerstone Credit Union League.

We are moving the chapter meeting to begin one hour earlier, with cocktails beginning at 4:30 p.m. and Caroline's presentation to 5 p.m.! For those who would like to stay, the chapter will be leaving the bar open, providing snacks and hosting a Thunder Watch Party at the Credit Union House! The cost for this exciting evening is only $25, which includes a drink ticket!

Spread the word and RSVP to Lisa Adamiak - ladamiak@focusfcu.org by October 16, 2017 if you plan to attend. We want to show our support for Caroline and our Thunder! For planning purposes, please include the number who will stay for our Thunder watch party!
