CUTE LOVE STORY ALERT!! ❤❤
At a recent event we attended, David & Ann Reynolds came up to us to tell their credit union story. 40 years ago, David worked at Courts & records Federal Credit Union (LA Financial Credit Union) and Centris Federal Credit Union. David hired Ann who before then worked at LAPD Federal Credit Union; time went on and they fell in love. Ann explained to us that she found love at a Credit Union and couldn’t be happier. 40 years later, they are retired, happily in love and are ecstatic to tell their credit union fairy tale.
