Youth Month Winners

June 1, 2017

April was National Credit Union Youth Month, and to encourage our younger Members to start (or continue) a savings habit, we created a contest. Everyone who made a deposit to a youth account during the month of April was entered to win one of five prizes.

We had a great turnout, with many of our youth Members making deposits. From among all the entries, we randomly chose our five winners. Winners of Utica Zoo passes are:

Our grand prize winner, who will go on a special Utica Zoo Animal Encounter, is Francesca D. Watch for a great picture of Francesca on her Animal Encounter next month.

Thanks to everyone who entered. Keep up those savings habits, and you’ll all be big winners as your savings grow!

Big Changes at the Utica Zoo

June 1, 2017

For many years, the Utica Zoo has been building on their long and rewarding tradition of bringing education and entertainment to the Mohawk Valley and Central New York. Now, they are digging into even bigger plans.

Back in September of 2016, we sponsored the Zoo’s Dream Big Master Plan Unveiling Initiative, where we announced a $60,000 contribution to the Utica Zoo Sinnott Education Center, a facility dedicated to giving attendees a glimpse behind the scenes of their ambassador and education animals. These animals are usually only visible when they travel to school classrooms, fairs, and other events to help people learn about the zoo’s important conservation work, and about the natural world. The Sinnott Center will give us a chance to see these wonderful animals during their training, both before and during their time visiting people outside of the facility.

Preparation for the new center has begun, as demolition of the old structure is completed. Renovations to the new space are beginning, and First Source CEO Mike Parsons joined other community leaders in celebrating the start of work with a ceremonial “shovel-ready” event on the site.

We look forward to seeing the new Sinnott Education Center take shape, along with the other exciting new initiatives at the Utica Zoo in the months and years ahead!

Get Pre-Approved For A Motorcycle Loan

June 20, 2017

Why Get Pre-approved?

First, you’ll know exactly how much you can borrow. To start, you can get a rough idea by viewing our motorcycle loan rate page or using our motorcycle loan calculator. Then submit a preliminary application for your loan. We'll review and if you qualify, we can recommend a loan. We'll work with  you on how much you can borrow, the interest rate and what the terms of the loan will be. This way you know up front the type of bike you can afford. 

You can go into negotiations with the confidence of someone who has cash in hand; which can also make pricing clearer from a dealer who might otherwise try to sell you on their financing options, which can come at a higher rate.


Is There A Commitment?

When you get pre-approved, you don’t have to make a commitment to secure the loan for 30 days. During that time, it’s ammunition to help you negotiate your motorcycle purchase with the dealer.


Ride Smarter

Applying to get your Motorcycle Loan pre-approved is easy. Get started with the application process below.

 

If you have more questions, we’re happy to help. Give us a call at 315-735-8571 to discuss your options or make an appointment with one of our friendly and knowledgeable representatives today. Simply click on the button below, select the “Apply for a Loan” service from the menu and choose the “Auto/Recreational” option.
