What We Did On Columbus Day and WHY


Each year on Columbus Day, all Peach State FCU branches and offices close—but we don’t take the day off.


We take the opportunity to have an all staff meeting, bringing more than 118 staff members from 12 branches and corporate headquarters together to learn and get back in touch with our core values.


This year, we met at the Aurora Theatre in downtown Lawrenceville. We started with a delicious breakfast and moved quickly on to drawings for fun prizes. We were encouraged to think about our retirement plans with advice from our 401K provider and we enjoyed a talk from speaker, Scott Wozniak, the Manager of Leadership Development for Chick-fil-A Corporate. Scott planted some seeds to help us achieve our mission of providing excellent member service.


We also congratulated a number of staff members for 5, 10 and 15 years of dedicated service!


We ended the day by working together to fill 600 bags with food for the Nothing But the Truth Ministry. The organization works with local schools to give the bags of food to children who may not have anything to eat on the weekends.

Credit Unions

This is just one more way that demonstrates our commitment of not only providing excellent member service, but serving our community as well.
