Genisys Credit Union, Auburn Hills, Mich., was a presenting sponsor for the 2008 Holiday Extravaganza held by the Auburn Hills, Pontiac, Waterford and White Lake communities. The event started with a tree lighting ceremony that was followed by caroling. Over 1,000 people attended to listen to the seven youth choirs perform, which was the largest attendance ever. A community breakfast and children’s winter art center was held as well. The holiday parade concluded the festivities. Close to 100 parade units participated. Point Loma Credit Union, Oceanside, Calif., celebrated its five-year anniversary with Santa Claus, children’s book readings and collecting new, unwrapped toys for the children of deployed military personnel. The toys were distributed by the Oceanside Rewards the Working Service Forces, a nonprofit service organization. Santa Claus made an appearance at the credit union to pass out gifts and pose for pictures. Chuck E. Cheese also made an appearance. Local children’s author Geraldine Lewis read from her latest book, Popsi, the Daughter of Mother Nature. Children also decorated cookies, created holiday crafts and entered a coloring contest.
