Northwest Community Credit Union Event

Recently Northwest Community Credit Union celebrated their 65th anniversary and wanted floral decorations that reflected how they began. In 1949 6 co-workers at Weyerhaeuser put $50 in a lunchbox with the intention of helping each other out. That year, Weyerhaeuser Springfield Credit Union made its first loan and soon became Northwest Community Credit Union.

The centerpieces for their celebration incorporated both the lunchbox theme and their roots working in the lumber industry.

Flower Astrology: Leo Horoscope July 23 – August 22

Zodiac Sign: The most dominant, spontaneously creative and extroverted (read: dramatic) of all the zodiac signs, Leos are also warmhearted, generous and loving. Strong, honorable, self-confident and dignified, those who share this birth sign think and act big – loving the limelight (stealing it, if they have to).

Birth Sign Flower: Choose a floral arrangement for Leos that matches this fire sign’s big hearted personality – like a flower bouquet filled with attention-grabbing sunflowers. With grand proportions, open faces and symbolism rooted in happiness and warmth, sunflowers capture both the Leo’s confidence and strength as well as their unfussy, loving spirit.
