Interior Savings Credit Union will put on a magic show at various branches this week to help celebrate the credit union’s 75th anniversary.

Kelowna-based magician Leif David will be performing his magic show for half-hour stints in West Kelowna today, 2:30 p.m.,  at Paynters Fruit Market, 3687 Paynter Rd., and Wednesday, 8:30 a.m.  in Kelowna at the Farmers’ Market, set up at the corner of Springfield Road and Dilworth Drive.

The fourth credit union founded in BC, Interior Savings has grown from 20 members to 71,000.  Last year alone, Interior Savings returned over $3 million in profits to its members and invested over half a million dollars in local community programs.

Reflecting on the milestone year, Kathy Conway, Interior Savings’ CEO, said,  “In the late 1930s, people were disillusioned with the big banks and were looking for a financial institution that would keep its members’ best interests at heart while also working to build stronger communities. And so started the credit union movement in our province.”

“The success we’ve had in 75 years tells a story of a community that believes in supporting local organizations who put people before profits.  To show our gratitude on this milestone year, we wanted to do something unexpected.”
