(Somerville, MA) Naveo Credit Union continued their 90th Anniversary celebration by hosting a member appreciation summer BBQ on Saturday, September 8 from 11AM to 3PM at its Somerville branch. The event was well attended by over 150 members, neighbors, community partners, directors and employees.
Naveo’s Summer BBQ was a casual, celebratory even to thank Naveo members and neighbors for choosing Naveo as their community financial institution and their support over the last 90 years. The event featured an assortment of food options, including hamburgers, hotdogs, veggie burgers, grilled chicken and even linguica sandwiches, prepared by John Ramos Catering. Naveo made sure to include a few fun options for kids, including a bounce house, temporary tattoos, Italian ice and yard games. Those in attendance also had the opportunity to spin a prize wheel for a trinket or a Naveo t-shirt.
Naveo employees and directors were very much a part of the event, greeting guests, serving food and drinks, and chatting with those new to the neighborhood. The BBQ concluded with three lucky winners taking home a TV, FitBit and an Amazon Alexa
“Our BBQ was a terrific opportunity for all us at Naveo to show how much we appreciate our member/owners. I attribute our success to their loyalty and trust over the past 90 years. Without them, Naveo would not exist! I truly enjoyed chatting with members and hearing about their stories on how the CU has impacted their lives. In addition, I enjoyed meeting our neighbors and business owners and learn about their needs and success stories. I want to thank my incredible staff for their dedication in coordinating this event and for making all the attendees feel welcomed. Since the event was such a success, we are considering making it an annual member appreciation event to thank our members for their continuous support.” commented Rui F. Domingos, Chief Executive Officer of Naveo Credit Union.
