The 2021 Catch the Vision Car Show & Cruise Hosted Over 100 Vehicles

Cars Cars Cars!

Cars Cars Cars!

Marquette, MI – June 17, 2021 – The Westwood Mall hosted this year’s “Catch the Vision” Car Show and Cruise!  The event featured vehicles and one motorcycle, old and new, put together by the Marquette Township Business Association in Marquette Charter Township.

This was the perfect way to spend part of the weekend with Dad for Father’s Day or entertain the kids on a sunny Saturday!  On June 19th, car registration starts at 10am, and the exhibit and brat lunch will follow at 11am.

At 11:30am our favorite “Rev It Up” event commenced!  Exhibitionists took turns revving their engines for the audience.  From 1:30 – 2pm there was a 30 minute raffle for participants prizes and the best of show award.  There were many prizes, 50/50 raffle, and the People’s Choice prize.

Finally, a little after 2pm, the Classic Car Cruise began!  Participating vehicles left from the Westwood Mall Parking lot, down Werner Street, up Ontario Ave, then looped back on Wright Street before turning onto Commerce Drive, then came back to the Westwood Mall Parking lot.

Pink Panther was even there with his awesome truck!

This year we met our previous record of 108 vehicles coming together!  If you have a unique or vintage car, be sure to come along next year to help us break the record!

Though admission was free, people were asked to bring along 5 cans of food for the Salvation Army.  Thank you to everyone that donated!

Special thanks to our sponsors – Marquette Township, the Westwood Mall, Super One Foods, TV6/FoxUP, and mediaBrew Communications.

Honor Credit Union

March 3, 2020 – The Michigan Credit Union League announced Honor Credit Union as the recipient of the 2021 Outstanding Credit Union of the Year Award. The Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL) and Michigan Credit Union Foundation (MCUF) awards recognize credit unions, professionals, and volunteers across the state for their superior service and dedication to the credit union movement.

“As everyone knows, 2020 was a tough year. Specifically, in Michigan, between COVID-19 hitting the state and the Midland flooding that happened over the summer, there were many challenges,” said MCUL President/CEO Dave Adams. “However, last year’s challenges make it all the more rewarding to take a moment and recognize some of the many professionals in our movement that stepped up to help their colleagues, members, and community in 2020.”

Among those recipients was Honor Credit Union taking home the top prize for Large-Asset-Size Outstanding Credit Union of the Year. “This award is such an accomplishment for our Honor Team. This past year, we have made it our mission to take care of our members as we take care of each other. To be recognized for our outstanding service is an honor, indeed,” stated Scott McFarland, Honor Credit Union CEO. “Although 2020 brought many obstacles, we thought outside the box and persevered to ensure we were offering the best possible service to our members. I could not be prouder of our Honor family and grateful to the MCUL for recognizing our efforts.”

MCUL and MCUF award winners will be formally honored at MCUL’s 2021 Annual Convention & Exposition in Traverse City this August.

Honor Credit Union is proud to serve more than 90,000 members across the state of Michigan. Providing solutions for financial success and giving back to the communities it serves remain the driving forces behind Honor Credit Union. For more information, call 800.442.2800, or visit www.honorcu.com.
