On Thursday Grenada joined the world in recognizing the 71st anniversary of international credit unions.
Hundreds of members from local credit unions gathered at the pearls airstrip to celebrate international credit union day.
Phillip Telesford, president of the credit union league said the credit union movement locally has grown significantly.
He said that this year’s theme, “local service, Global reach” is quite fitting for the overall goal of the credit union movement on an international scale.
Celebrations on the sister-isle, Carriacou, will take place at the Hillsborough Tennis Court on October 24. The march past will begin from the Hillsborough Community Centre at 3pm.
