Advantage Credit Union invites the public to celebrate International Credit Union Day on Thursday at the credit union, where refreshments will be served all day.

The credit union idea arose centuries ago as people worked under a common effort without thought of profit. They put out fires, harvested crops and avoided high-priced loans by lending to one another.

The third Thursday of October is set aside as the international day of observance.
