thanksgiving dayFort Knox Federal Credit Union staffers and members will be watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York City to see Kentucky’s North Hardin High School Band makes its debut. The credit union was among the first to support NHHS band’s fundraising efforts with a contribution of $10,000 to defray the band’s travel expenses to New York. 

“It’s one of the great honors for a high school band to be selected to march in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City and we’re on our way!” said Brian Froedge, North Hardin High School band director. In a show of thanks the band performed a special concert at the high school for its hometown fans and supporters. 

“When we first heard that North Hardin High’s band had been invited to march in the Macy’s Parade, we immediately wanted to help these deserving students realize their once in a lifetime opportunity.  Along with being the keystone corporate contributor, we have worked alongside school officials and band boosters to raise the money for this trip,” Ray Springsteen, president/CEO of Fort Knox FCU said.
