Connecting With the Community at Baby Fair & Expo

On Saturday, February 25th, Partners 1st employees talked to over 1,000 people at the 97.3 WMEE Baby Fair & Expo in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was a fun-filled day with over 65 vendors offering products and services to keep families healthy, safe, and organized.

Partners 1st Federal Credit Union was the Cash at the Door sponsor where the first 200 people through the doors received an envelope. This envelope gave that person a chance to win up to $500! This kicked our booth off to a great start to open conversations with prospective members. Partners 1st was also one of the passport stations, where people had to visit all the stations to get stamps on their passports for a chance to win an even bigger prize. With both of those factors, many folks stopped by to ask questions about savings and discuss their future financial goals.
