COLUMBUS, OH (July 23, 2013) — Chrisi Penner, of Centerburg, Ohio, recently won a trip for two to the Occidental Grand Xcaret Mexico Resort, courtesy of Telhio Credit Union.  The promotional trip was rooted in an appreciation for the beauty of butterflies, and includes an exciting visit to a butterfly pavilion in Mexico.
