Redwood Credit Union Parades Back in Time

Santa Rosa, CA –Redwood Credit Union (RCU) recently sponsored and participated in the annual Cloverdale Citrus Fair Parade, a time-honored tradition in Cloverdale for more than a century. More than 30 RCU volunteers, including employees, family and friends, participated in the parade, which carried the theme, “Rockin’ in the ‘50s.”

RCU volunteers paid tribute to the ‘50s—the decade in which the Credit Union was established—by donning ponytails, bobby socks, cuffed jeans and Elvis-style sunglasses. RCU’s parade entry also included a silver Dodge Challenger, provided by RCU’s Auto Center, and the Credit Union’s mascot, Reddy the Redwood, wearing rock-star shades and wielding an inflatable guitar.

“The Citrus Fair Parade is a longstanding tradition in Cloverdale, and Redwood Credit Union was very happy to become a sponsor for the first time this year,” said Dawn Leandro, RCU’s Cloverdale Branch Manager. “This is an event that brings the whole community together, and we look forward to partnering with the Citrus Fair for many years to come.”

RCU actively supports and participates in a variety of community programs throughout the year, including the Sonoma, Marin & Mendocino County Human Races, the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, and United Way.
