When one thinks of anniversaries, one usually envisions the celebrants being on the receiving end of the gifts and congratulations.
Think again, when it comes to Westoba Credit Union. On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, Westoba was the one doling out the presents — $10,000 community grants to various organizations around the province.
On a Thursday afternoon earlier this month, members of those groups trooped down to their local Westoba branch to receive their cash.
