On April 28, 2019, Guardians CU sponsored the Sweet Corn Fiesta. Local farmers brought in corn and vegetables that were grown in western Palm Beach County. The annual festival is a celebration of the sweet corn growing season buttered with a family festival of children's games, music, a national eating competition and oh yes, mouth-watering a locally grown sweet corn! We handed out bags and our ever popular yellow pencils and answered questions. And, our corn hats were definitely the envy of the other vendors!
Keep America Beautiful
On April 27, 2019, Guardians CU was honored to be a part of the 65+ participants that helped clean up the Snook Island shoreline as part of the nationwide day of service called Keep America Beautiful. Over 8 cubic yards of debris was removed from this environmentally sensitive area!
There was about a mile and a half of intracoastal shoreline where litter was picked up. Additionally, kayaks were used to paddle out to the Islands and picking litter off of the rocks. The Snook Islands are an environmentally sensitive area providing habitat for many species of birds and fish. Trash and occasionally other interesting objects, like room-sized rugs and kitchen sinks, wash up as well. We did not see any kitchen sinks this time!

It was a beautiful morning and our team raised $150 to donate to this most worthy cause.
