Annual Meeting Attendees: Gift Your Guests with a Special Program
Tuesday, February 23, 2016 6:20 AM


While credit union employees and leadership will be at the 2016 Annual Meeting learning all sorts of valuable new things to take back to their credit unions, the guest program for accompanying spouses and other guests can enjoy a fascinating program touring some of the most interesting and historic sites in Oklahoma City, followed by lunch and creativity.

On Wednesday, April 6, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., guests will begin their day with the moving account of Amy Downs, who was a credit union employee and survivor of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

Downs began working for Federal Employees Credit Union (now called Allegiance Credit Union) in 1988. She was working for the credit union on April 19, 1995, when a bomb blast destroyed

not only the credit union, but the entire Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Eighteen of her co-workers and many of the credit union’s members were killed, while many others were injured. After being buried under the rubble for more than six hours, Amy began rethinking her life goals and priorities.

Embracing a second chance at life, Amy has accomplished many personal goals including losing 200 lbs. She is now a runner, cyclist, and an advocate for personal fitness. Her testimony of strength and survival has been an inspiration to many.

Guests will have the opportunity to visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial, which honors the victims, survivors, rescuers, and all who were affected by the Oklahoma City bombing. The memorial

is located in downtown Oklahoma City on the former site of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Touring the Memorial Museum is essential to understanding the story of April 19, 1995, and its impact.

After the tours, relax at the Wine and Palette with a delicious lunch (included in fee), and spend an unforgettable afternoon of fun, wine, and fine art with one of the local artists who will guide you through the featured painting. At the end of the afternoon, leave with your own masterpiece.

The guest program is Wednesday, April 6, 2016, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The fee for this program is only $85 per person, which includes transportation, museum fees, lunch, and painting instruction/supplies and fees.
