IU Credit Union employee, Dan Rittichier, takes a moment to smile for the camera while passing out candy, toys, stickers, and piggy banks to the many children visiting the Monroe County Fall Festival.

IU Credit Union was once again a part of the Monroe County Fall Festival, passing out giveaways and information about the Credit Union to the many attendees during this 3 day event. IU Credit Union employees spent a few hours out of the day on Friday giving out reflective Halloween bags, candy and goodies to celebrate Kids' Day.

"Kids Day is my favorite," says Dan Rittichier, an IU Credit Union employee. "I love to see their little faces light up when they take a toy or a piggy bank from our display. I don't know if they take my advice or not when they take a piggy bank, but I tell them it's rewarding when you can save your money and buy something nice for yourself."

The Credit Union also got to test their candy throwing skills as they drove the parade route on Saturday.

IU Credit Union is proud to participate in the official kickoff to Fall every year with the Monroe County Fall Festival in Ellettsville.

Visit our branch in Ellettsville at 3801 West State Road 46. Our friendly staff would love the opportunity to serve you.
