The record contingent of World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans traveled to Washington, D.C., on Sept. 26 as part of this year’s Honor Flight. Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives partnered with the Honor Flight Bluegrass Chapter to make the trip possible.

To mark the 90 years of Singapore's cooperative movement, the Singapore National Co-operative Federation (SNCF) has put together a commemorative book and a travelling exhibition. The story of cooperatives started in 1925, way back before Independence. Back then, credit co-ops were formed to offer safe banking services and loans with affordable re-payment rates to workers.

Tired of getting nickle and dimed by your bank? Consider joining a Credit Union. Maintenance fees, minimum balance fees, overdraft fees - the list is endless. If your bank is taking a bite out of your budget, consider taking your business to a credit union.

Credit unions offer the same services as banks but they have higher rates of return, lower fees, and are safe and secure. And because they're not for profit, they're all about putting the people first. Credit unions are member-owned and operated and any profit they do make goes right back to their members in the form of better rates and services.
