Horizons Federal Credit Union will celebrate its 15th annual Family Fun Friday with a press conference on Friday, August 19th at 12:00 p.m. at the credit unions main office at 120 Main Street in Binghamton.
The award-winning Family Fun Friday provides free, fun and educational activities for children of all ages. This year, the children will enjoy crafts, games, music by Mix 103.3, B-Mets mascots, a visit from the Zoo Mobile, face painting, and a school supply and backpack giveaway and more. Plus free hotdogs, ice-pops, popcorn and drinks will be provided.
In addition to local families, Horizons invites local community groups to participate. This year children from the Binghamton Housing Authority will attend, with transportation provided with the help of BC Transit. Family Fun Friday is also made possible with the generous support of ACCO Brands – Mead® and FiveStar®, Barnes & Noble of Vestal, Binghamton Health Campaign, Binghamton Mets, Binghamton University, Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park, CCE BC Eat Smart New York and last but not least, Huff Ice Cream Co.
In 2011, 2013 and 2015 Horizons won the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award for its many community efforts as well as three for its Family Fun Friday program. This award recognizes a credit union that goes beyond personal finance education and gives back to members of the community through outreach programs. Over the last 14 years Family Fun Fridays has touched the lives of hundreds of children and families – fulfilling the credit union’s social purpose and inspiring a sense of pride for the community.
