"It is businesses and staff like those of Visions that create a sense of community and display the importance of giving to others for our youth to mirror."

Visions Federal Credit Union Holds Shredding Event

Officials are talking about the importance of shredding those unwanted documents.

Visions Federal Credit Union held a free shredding event Saturday in three different locations; Endwell, Sayre and Owego.

Bank statements, bills and social security numbers were all destroyed by Confidata trucks.

The idea is to drop off all those needless documents so they can be disposed of properly in order to prevent fraud on your account.

Visions workers volunteered to work the event. Organizers say they just want to make sure your information is not being used by someone else.

"Throughout the year, take a box, throw all of your important paperwork into that box and when you see that we advertise that we're doing this, just bring it down and we will shred it for you," said Visions Federal Credit Union manager Kay Murray.

Visions holds the shredding event twice a year. The next one will be in October.

Visions Federal Credit Union Surprises Moviegoers, Fills Theater

Visions Federal Credit Union Surprises Moviegoers, Fills Theater

WATKINS GLEN, March 20 -- Visions Federal Credit Union paid the price of admission for more than 820 moviegoers attending four showings of Disney’s new live-action "Cinderella" film on March 14 at The Glen Theater. "I was able to take my 5-year-old daughter to the afternoon showing and it was wonderful to see the theater full of families enjoying an afternoon together," longtime Visions member Lori Asperschlager said. Light promotion in Visions offices and around town drew many to the special community event. But several unsuspecting theater patrons were pleasantly surprised to learn the credit union was taking care of tickets for the highly anticipated release. "Visions has been at our Watkins Glen location for over 10 years. During that time, we've watched the area blossom and shared its strong sense of community and local pride," said Mandy DeHate, Visions marketing manager, in explaining the event. "When we made the decision to give back to the communities that support us in 2015, Watkins Glen was first on our list."

Spiedie Fest Adding Wine and Beer

Binghamton (WIVT) - The Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally is announcing some exciting changes to our region's largest outdoor festival. One significant difference this Summer will be the return of alcoholic beverages to the Fest. Organizers say they had approached the state about supporting the event and officials offered to send the popular traveling Taste of New York. But the catch was that Taste of New York includes wine and beer samplings and sales. Once organizers decided the attraction was worth ending the decades-long ban on alcohol at the festival, they decided to add a second adult beverage tent right next door. "It will be a secured tent with security in there that they can't wander outside. We really want to keep the family aspect still of Spiedie Fest but if somebody did want to get an adult beverage, or somebody wants to go through and do some great sampling of New York State products, wineries, micro-breweries, things like that, they can do that," said Event Coordinator Dave Pessagno. Also, the $20 3-day button will return after a one year hiatus. And, thanks to the sponsorship of Visions Federal Credit Union, Friday evening admission to the festival will be free. However, Friday's concert still requires a Spiedie Fest button.
