Sovita Credit Union hosted their annual Member Appreciation Day for their Genesee County offices last week on Wednesday, July 31 and Thursday, Aug. 1, while their Lapeer offices hosted the event this week. Each year the financial institution offers its members “a day of gratitude and giveaways,” which was catered by Country Smokehouse of Almont. Team members Troy Trahan, Jennifer Shew, Brenda Marciniak and Dave Geen gathered for a photo outside the tents at their Calkins Rd. office. According to Shew, the event grows each year, and this year Sovita more than doubled the space and amount of food they offered last year.
