Pine Bluff Chapter Hosts First Reality Fair In-House

Pine Bluff Reality Fair

The Pine Bluff Chapter of Credit Unions hosted its first Reality Fair at the White Hall Community Center in White Hall on August 25. Employees and guests of Pine FCU, Fairfield FCU, and Pine Bluff Cotton Belt FCU participated in the fair. More than 30 people learned about the realities of finances and how to live on a budget.

The Pine Bluff Chapter had applied for a grant from the Cornerstone Credit Union League Foundation to purchase the Reality Fair. Debbie Gatlin, CEO of Pine FCU and the Pine Bluff Chapter secretary, and Joe Spadoni, board chairman of Pine Bluff Cotton Belt FCU and the chapter’s vice president, were happy to see so many people attend the event. 

“This is our very first Reality Fair," said Gatlin, "and we felt it was important for the employees of our chapter’s credit unions to know how the fair works and what the program goals are before we try to take this reality fair out into our community.”

Spadoni echoed Gatlin’s statement. “As a chapter, we want to be more involved in our communities, so we see the Reality Fair as a natural fit. We are proud the chapter has taken this on as a project.”
