Lufkin-based Angelina Federal Employees Credit Union held its 65th annual meeting March 17 at Lottie & Arthur Temple Civic Center in Diboll, Texas. About 150 people attended—and what a celebration it was!

The event, themed for the 1950s, was kicked off at 2 p.m. with a petting zoo, vintage car show, bouncy house, dominoes, corn-hole games, face painting, a photo booth, and a 1950s costume contest. Guests ate hot dogs, hamburgers, funnel cakes, and ice cream sundaes. The business meeting commenced at 4:30 p.m., followed by Bingo.

Over 65 years, the credit union has engaged with the community for many good causes, including Reality Fairs, Relay for Life, Bags of Love, and Cellphones for Soldiers. They "adopted" children at Christmas and donated to Canton tornado victims. They also joined the effort of Four Paws for Alexander, partnering with Temple FCU to raise $12,000 for the training of a service dog for an autistic child. They have collected and delivered items for Hurricane Harvey victims and donated $2,000 to the Jefferson County Child Welfare Board for foster children displaced due to Hurricane Harvey.

At the annual meeting, Angelina Federal Employees CU President/CEO Carla Kelley said, “I wonder if the ten original charter members ever had the idea that the credit union they created in the basement of a federal building 65 years ago would be where it is today.”

Kelley has been with the credit union since February 1999, when she replaced the credit union's then-retiring president. She reports that Angelina Federal Employees CU has a closed field of membership that serves 2,520 federal employees and retired military family members and has $27 million in assets. They have remained true to their original field of membership but are a full-service financial institution.

The credit union has one branch and six ATMs in numerous outlying areas, and they are in the process of renovating their building to better serve their membership.

"I would like to thank my employee Carol Dunman and her daughter Diana for countless hours of brainstorming and working to coordinate vendors," Kelley says. "Also Linda Jones and Carol Dunman for all the decorating efforts. And we would also like to thank Debbie Rightmire for sharing in the celebration of our 65th annual meeting."
