    The Best Banking Community Days give us a chance to celebrate our award within our communities, at the same time raising awareness about the difference that credit unions make.
    Through these events we will have conversations with Everyday Families while providing fun entertainment and prizes. This will create opportunities for us to hand out our $200 cash cards, promote awareness through social media, and involve staff members and the community. Everyday Families will have a chance to play Plinko to win a prize. The Plinko categories will reinforce what it means to deal with a credit union.
    In 2004, Grandson Ron, his wife Colleen and their 4 children all started the McMillan Pumpkin Patch with only a 100 pumpkins to sell to neighbors. Since then, they have continuously expanded the business which now produces several thousand pumpkins and gourds each year, from almost 24 different varieties. In 2008, the family replanted a portion of the farms 18 acre hayfield with corn, to create one of Kelowna's best corn maze's. In 2008, they also added the sale of Christmas Trees as one of the farms many offerings. McMillan Farms continues to improve the farm experience every year for Kelowna and Okanagan families, with some exciting additions waiting for you in 2016.
