Woodbridge, VA, July 26, 2011 ¾ On Saturday, July 23, 2011, Belvoir Federal Credit Union celebrated the sixth annual Installation Appreciation Day in Fort Belvoir, Va. With thousands in attendance, Belvoir Federal demonstrated their appreciation for the military and civilian families associated with the Fort Belvoir community.
The successful event was due in part to the contributions from surrounding businesses, credit union partners, and vendor sponsorships. With these combined efforts, Belvoir Federal Credit Union provided an array of free activities, including: a rock climbing wall, car showcase, fire truck display, face painters, a clown, musical entertainment, free food, celebrities signing autographs, and the Washington Nationals and the USO of Metropolitan Washington provided games for attendees. Belvoir Federal also held a drawing for more than 20 prizes, including a vacation cruise.
During the three hour event, Belvoir Federal’s CEO/President Patricia Kimmel, presented the USO a $5,000 check to illustrate the continued support of the base and the mission to continually serve our members. Garrison Commander Colonel John Strycula and Command Sergeant Major Gabriel Berhane were also present during the check presentation to the USO. Col. Strycula commented on the wonderful relationship the base has with the credit union and hopes the partnership continues to grow in the years to come.
“Belvoir Federal is honored to be the Credit Union for Fort Belvoir and enjoys giving back to the community whenever the occasion presents itself” stated Kimmel.
