A Word from Empower Federal Credit Union:
What’s Your New Year’s Resolution?...
A New Year’s resolution is when a person sets a goal to make their life better.  In 2020, why not create your own New Year’s resolution to include saving more in your Dollar Dog account?  This resolution will help teach positive money management skills – and you will have saved a greater amount of money throughout the year! 
Not yet a Dollar Dog saver?  Contact Lauri Hoover at 315.728.3474 or to join.

All the Best in 2020!
