Fall 2021 RRCU Chronicle
International Credit Union Day
On October 21, 2021, RRCU will join over 56,000 credit unions around the world to celebrate International Credit Union (ICU) Day. The theme of ICU Day 2021 is “Building financial health for a brighter tomorrow.”
ICU Day highlights the many ways that credit unions across the world help members improve their financial health and well-being. Our Summerhill Road branch in Texarkana (TX) will hold a shredding event from 2PM-5PM on October 21st. We hope you'll join us and shred all your outdated and unneeded documents. Shredding services provided by Sustainable Services.
Credit unions were built on the principle of “people helping people.” We’ve seen that philosophy in action for more than 100 years, with credit unions providing access to affordable financial products and striving to meet the needs of underserved communities. RRCU is honored to be a part of this proud tradition.
International Credit Union Day is brought to you by Credit Union National Association and World Council of Credit Unions. This year’s event is proudly sponsored by Harland Clarke.

Holiday Loans are Here Again
The holidays can be stressful, especially with the ongoing pandemic. Some may be tempted to get a payday or title loan to help cover expenses, but those loan types are most often very expensive. After you add up how much interest and/or fees you'd pay with a payday or title loan, we are confident you'll opt for a Holiday Loan from RRCU instead. Now through December 31st, click apply now for a Holiday Loan from Red River Credit Union or with our mobile app, in person, or call direct at 903-735-3149. We are looking forward to helping make your holidays brighter.

When ordering checks through an outside source, the account number must be listed a specific way; it is not just the member number. Account number format is 010XXXXXX0 (Xs are the member number). If the member number is less than 6 digits, extra 0s will go in front of the member number (ex. Member number 1234 would be 0100012340 on the check account line). If a member has multiple checking accounts under one membership, the 010 may be 020 and so on. In this case, please ask a branch representative to confirm the correct account number listing. Remember check numbering must end at 8999, then restart numbering.
