2017 Military Appreciation Banquet


Fairbanks, Alaska, April 28, 2017 -  Members And Community (MAC) Federal Credit Union sponsored the 2017 Military Appreciation Banquet. 

In 1968 Jim and Rosemary Messer invited a few friends in the military over for an in-home-dinner-party. Their intentions were to get to know, show support, and genuinely care for the men and women who serve our country, and live within the Fairbanks community. 49 years later, this small in-home-dinner has grown to a banquet event of close to 600 people. The evening honors military personnel from the interior who exemplify excellence, leadership, and commitment. In addition, the banquet program also includes recognition of volunteers from each military installation who best promotes military and community relations. This volunteer award is known as the Jim Messer Award. 

MAC FCU takes great pride in serving its military and to be a program sponsor of this event was no exception. Our staff sat on the various committees, and volunteered hours of service to the decorations, and cleanup. In addition to the behind the scene work that was involved, MAC FCU and its Board Members hosted 4 military couples: Mr.& Mrs. Toth, Mr. & Mrs. Rigby, Mr. and Mrs. Villanueva, and Mr. & Mrs. Kotulan. 

One spectator said, “It was an incredible honor to sit with these brave, honored, humble, leaders. A beautiful night, filled with warm hearts of the Fairbanks community caring for and honoring our military!” 

At MAC FCU we are pleased to support the Fairbanks community as much as possible, this was a memorable way for all who participated.
