    ROCHESTER, NH – HRCU hosted a CU Senior Safeguard Lunch and Learn at the Rochester Elks earlier this month. The event was sponsored by the Cooperative Credit Union Association (CCUA) and the NH Community Loan Fund. Walt Laskos, CCUA’s SVP of Strategic Communications, led the discussion with a panel of seven other industry experts.

    “As financial scams targeting seniors continue to skyrocket out of control, it was great to join with HRCU and so many community leaders to help seniors become more alert and informed in protecting themselves and their life savings,” said Laskos.

    Panelists included Rochester Mayor Caroline McCarley, Sunny Mulligan Shea of the Attorney General’s Office, Christine Garbin of the Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services, Cheryl Steinberg, Esq. of NH Legal Assistance, HRCU Fraud Specialist Nicole Huntress, Rochester Police Detective Flathers, and Attorney Bryan Townsend.

    “The NH Community Loan Fund is delighted to partner with HRCU. The expert panel provided valuable information, not only to avoid the ever-changing barrage of financial scams targeting seniors, but also the myriad of other valuable resources available here in NH. Every senior should watch for these events and take advantage – it could save them thousands!” said Tara Reardon of the NH Community Loan Fund.

    Those in attendance were educated on common scams and how they can look out to prevent
    themselves from falling victim to one. Additionally, Laskos asked attendees to pass this information along to other seniors who were unable to make it to the event.

    “It was a pleasure to partner with all these great organizations to educate the community on important financial issues,” said Brian Hughes, President & CEO of HRCU. “We look forward to holding more events like this in the future.”

    HRCU is a state-chartered and NCUA federally insured community credit union that serves over 22,000 members throughout the New Hampshire Seacoast since 1962. You are eligible to be a member if you live or work in New Hampshire.
