Another Successful Johnny Appleseed Fall Festival

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Cool temps no barrier to crowds, 437 ice cream sundaes dished out and two ALS Ice Bucket Challenges at New Hampshire Federal Credit Union's Fall Festival 

Despite the raw temperatures that prevailed on October 11, we were able to dish out 437 ice cream sundaes and two ALS Ice Bucket Challenges at Beech Hill Farm in Hopkinton, during our annual Fall Festival. 
According to Polly Saltmarsh, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development,
  “We have hosted this event annually for several years and the crowd keeps growing!  It is free to the public and is a way for us to give back and interact directly with our members and our community.  Our CEO, John R. Young, spends three hours scooping ice cream!”
  This year, however our President/CEO, John R. Young, also took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Several ice cold gallons of water and ice were poured over him at the hands of Make-A-Wish NH Ambassadors, Katelyn and Isabella, alongside Rapunzel and Princess Elsa.  Mr. Young then challenged two more people, Polly Saltmarsh of NHFCU, and Wayne Penn, a long-time volunteer for Make-A-Wish NH.  Despite the frigid temperatures, all those challenged welcomed the deluge, raising additional funds for ALS while doing so.
   While the event itself is free, we were accepting donations to benefit Make-A-Wish NH from event attendees.  Several families whose children have been wish recipients enjoyed the festivities as well as our members and the general public.  On top of the free sundaes, we offered activities like free corn maze passes for the children, face-painting, and live music. Throughout the afternoon, children and adults alike danced and sang along to popular hits by a local band, The Sonic Boomers, who donates their tips to Make-A-Wish, NH as well and recently celebrated donations in excess of $25,000 to Make-A-Wish NH. 

“We thoroughly enjoy hosting this family outing because we are committed to making a difference within our community,” says Saltmarsh, “Most often, people think of us for saving money by refinancing and consolidating.  As a matter of fact, we’ve saved people more than $1.2 million since May.  But, we also like to provide memorable experiences for families because our focus is on the entire relationship with our members.  We all need family time – and this is NH Federal Credit Union’s version of family time.”
Our next big event is Halloween Howl, where we are planning some surprises for families who attend the annual event in downtown Concord.
