Tri-County Chapter Paints the Future Bright

Tri County Chapter
Attendees of the Tri County Chapter "Paint Your Future Bright" event show off their masterpieces.

For its first event of 2020, the Tri-County Chapter had just one goal for attendees: “paint your future bright”.

To do that, the 50-plus attendees (representing credit unions in the Chapter) convened Jan. 28 at Memo’s Canvas in Montclair. They were given a canvas, a pallet of paints, brushes, and an apron. With the help of an instructor—who provided step-by-step verbal instructions—the artists painted their vision of a sunset through a cave opening. Breaks allowed for time to mingle and enjoy refreshments.

Tri-County Chapter Board members (L-R): Crystal Solomon (CO-OP Financial Services), Terrence Davis (SchoolsFirst FCU), Tina Covington (Altura CU), Linda Emmons (Wescom CU), Carlo Galioto (Wescom CU), Michelle Gardner (Altura CU), Evelyn Davis (Wescom CU), and Tracy Arroyo (Inland Valley FCU).


In the end, the finished product from participants were wonderful and unique. Prizes, though, were given to the top three paintings as designated by the instructor: First place—Daniel Herrera of Alta Vista CU; Carmen Herrera of SchoolsFirst FCU, and Brenda Guerra of Wescom CU.

Daniel Herrera of Alta Vista CU received a first-place award from the instructor at Memo's Canvas for his artwork.


“We wanted to kick off the new year with a fun but meaningful event,” said Carlo Galioto, chairman of the Tri-County Chapter and branch manager with Wescom CU.

Inland Valley FCU Operations Manager Kathy Ramirez and CEO Charles Papenfus work on their art pieces.


“The Tri-County Chapter’s 2020 focus is to create events that bring value to the credit unions and vendors in our community and to help paint their future bright.”
