Celebrating the Long(er) Haul

Logix - Header- Anniversary

Money and marriage, the two seem to be forever intertwined. In my first post on this series, Celebrating the Long Haul I talked about my own recent marriage. It turns out, I wasn’t the only one reflecting on the value of anniversaries at the time. My dad let me know that he had begun making plans to renew his vows after 31 years of marriage to my mother. She later confided to me how much that meant to her, that with all the gifts and difficulties that come along with decades of commitment; her partner would choose to do it all again. It struck me that years down the road when thinking about my own wedding, I wouldn’t remember the price of peonies or the cost of carnations, but rather recall the celebration of promises kept.

At Logix, we feel a similar fulfillment in honoring our ongoing partnerships with long term members. Since 1937 you’ve trusted us to provide you with smarter banking, and over the years we’ve grown with you. Like the significance of the materials listed below, we've been proud to support you with any of your banking needs from: increased balances, financed dream cars, to new home ownership.

I hope you enjoy part two of this series, celebrating the milestone gifts we give to celebrate love and their significance in history as money. If you’d like to read part one first, please click here.

Celebrating the Long Haul

Different types of people prefer different types of gifts. This is a tried and true fact in my own relationship. I tend to gravitate towards life’s finer things: a new purse, makeup, and being treated to as many of Los Angeles’ burritos as humanly possible. My husband? He’d like to be given something he can put to use, like gift cards or cash. Having been married recently, I found myself googling anniversary gifts. I was surprised to learn that traditional wedding anniversary gifts can not only include the type of flashy presents I prefer, but also many materials that have a history of being used as currency.

How appropriate these anniversary materials are used to celebrate the longstanding relationships our members have with Logix Federal Credit Union. Whether it’s through better interest rates, improved facilities or better training for our staff (so that you receive the best possible service), we’re all about giving back to our members. We thought it would be fun to offer this list with the same spirit of gift-giving in mind. Whether you’ve been with us for one year, five years or even 40 years, these are anniversaries we value and hope to celebrate for years to come.

From cake flavors and color schemes to bridal party attire and deciding on flowers, it can be enough to seriously consider eloping.
