Northern Credit Union Shows Saugeen Country Community Appreciation

Northern Credit Union (NCU) is proud to recognize three local hometown heroes for their contributions and dedication to Saugeen Country.

Vanda Harris and Don Tremble from Durham, and Kayla Joyce from Elmwood were surprised this week when NCU knocked on their doors. Representatives dressed in ‘corporate plaid’ showed up with a smile on their faces, a $500 Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) for each, and large baskets of goodies in their arms.

Earlier this month NCU sent out a call to local Northern employees to nominate individuals who deserved recognition for their community efforts and commitment. Three individuals stood out above the rest as true local heroes.

“We are committed to the Saugeen Country and as part of our True North Strong Communities program, we’re delighted to recognize local individuals and show our appreciation for their hard work and volunteerism,” said NCU Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Channel Management, Tony Dunham.

Vanda Harris was nominated for her work within the food bank and church community. She is being recognized for her time commitment and for organizing many successful church events.

Don Tremble is a strong contributor to the Saugeen Country community. As the owner of Candue Homes, he is responsible for the development of 200 new homes in the Grey Bruce area and a $10 million housing partnership with Durham. Additionally he is a proud major supporter of the Durham Thundercats minor league hockey team. Tremble was nominated as a local hero for his community enthusiasm, friendly demeanour and willingness to always lend a hand.

Kayla Joyce has committed countless hours of volunteering to a senior citizen based organization. She was nominated for her years of dedication, providing service in the community.
