On July 22nd, 2016,
 Central Missouri Community Credit Union (CMCCU) 
will be partying like it is 1961!  CMCCU will be celebrating our 55th year anniversary by having a drawing for $55.00 and prizes at the Richmond, Sedalia and Warrensburg locations.  Stop by and have some cake and lemonade with us, and let us know how you heard about the 55th Anniversary.  Then go to Facebook and vote for your favorite employee dressed like 1961!  There are rumors that Lucille Ball will be making an appearance and perhaps even Elvis singing Love Me Tender which came out in 1961!  Check the Facebook page for more 1961 trivia.  You only turn 55 once!
