Credit union helps MARC

Keys Federal Credit Union recently supported the 9th Annual ReMARCable Table Top Tree Auction with a contribution of $1,500. In addition to a financial donation, for the past five years, Keys Federal Credit Union employees have donated their time to work the auction to further ensure its success. This year's auction will be held on Dec. 4 at the Westin Resort and Marina.

"This is a unique, fun event that puts us in the holiday spirit," said Scott Duszynski, president and CEO of Keys FCU. "It is worthwhile local nonprofits like MARC (Monroe Association for ReMARCable Citizens) that exemplify why Keys Federal Credit Union feels it is so important to support our community."

First State sponsors leadership class

First State Bank of the Florida Keys is a leading sponsor of Leadership Monroe County class XXI.

The bank sponsored the opening session titled "Leadership, Tourism and the Economy," which featured a presentation by the bank's president and CEO and Leadership Monroe County graduate Karen Sharp.

Leadership Monroe County was developed by the Key West Chamber of Commerce to build constructive relationships between Florida Keys community leaders. Participants take part in a series of one and multi-day sessions examining fundamental segments of the local community where they learn about the county and make important contacts to help them better serve the community.
