Max’s Reading Adventure Was A Literal Success!

Max the Monkey really helped us fire up the kids to read in April! Kids were encouraged to complete a five-book reading list and submit it for a chance to win a $100 deposit into their savings accounts. Over 1,300 entries were submitted, translating to over 6,500 books read! Each branch chose a winner. If your child entered, be sure to check their account! Thanks to all the youngsters who entered!

Here’s how to join Kids Club!
Kids Club is open to all children 12 and under who become LMCU members by opening an account. A parent will need to approve and sign the application form. You can open a Kids Club account for your child by stopping by any LMCU branch with their Social Security number and at least $5.00 for an initial deposit. The whole process takes just a few minutes.
