And They're Off!
The $1.5 billion, 137,800-member Genisys Credit Union in Auburn Hills, Mich., sent a bunch of people down the creek with a paddle recently. They were the 84 paddlers participating in Paddlepalooza, an eight-mile canoe and kayak race from Riverside Park in Auburn Hills to the Rivercrest Banquet Center in Rochester Hills.
“Paddlepalooza 2013 was another great chance for people in our area to get outside and experience the Clinton River first hand,” said Brian Marzolf, recreation director for Auburn Hills in suburban Detroit.
“It is great to see the Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills communities come together to create a wonderful event on the river,” said Jackie Buchanan, president/CEO of the 24-branch Genisys CU, open for membership to anyone who lives or works in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.
